We didn't pay all that much so we all know that saying?? Went to McDonalds for dinner. GOTTA experience foreign McDonalds. The young lady asked us where we were from and got very excited.

He then had to walk up into the city to one of the main squares t ...

... up and ready to go except Abby’s car had a flat tire. With 9 of us we needed two cars and the wrench to get the tire off wasn’t working – oh well. We’d just have to have a picnic by the football field instead!
