    ... to stroll the grounds and try out the patankque. We head over to the front desk and ask about getting the set of balls for patankque. The lady gives us this quizzical look...and after a few minutes of trying to explain the game, she retrieves the set explaining she always wondered what they were for. The set consists of eight metal balls about the size of baseballs along with a much smaller ball, which was lost and replaced by a golf ball. ...

It was like a game of Tetris to ensure everyone was feet to feet or head to head! The night had an added bonus as (other) Jack decided to specifically wake me up at 3am to ask whether I could see two strangers in our room. No I couldn't. Go back to sleep Jack, you nutter! We ...
