... the suspension. The island also has a gigantic abandoned tower about 70 meters tall that a lot of daring backpackers climb at own their own risk. It was impossible to resist the urge and so we parked the car and ran up the tower hoping nobody saw us. 70 meters later and 3 litres less of sweat I made it to the too to find the very windy and rusty platform with one of the best views I have seen on my travels, apparently we found a fire extinguisher somewhere on the climb up as we shot ...

I also ordered a margarita which took a while to come, as did the food, the service ...
