So I spent some time tweaking bits of this - to bore me to sleep. I'm sure that this IPad is getting a bit full of text and photos and tired.

Two other guys and I attempted to reel the Alpha's back in by pace lining along relatively flat roads at ...
I continue to wander around some more and decide to try and find the nearby monastery. I had no idea where it was and decided to drive around hoping I'd find it.
