... to our hostel to go out for dinner, which is a near impossible task too! Nothing invites or welcomes one in. We walk past loads of tiny places that have only a half curtain covering the closed door. We've no idea if its a resteraunt of someone's home!

... disrupting and disrespecting the dead, we found ourselves in a back alley stuck behind what looked to be a back alley drug deal. I'm pretty sure Jordan has a minor stroke... Two stops at the 7 & iHoldings later, we were finally able to locate the restaurant (none of us remember the name of the place) thanks to Toni finally taking my suggestion and locating the G spot on the map.
