That night we went to the only busy bar which was packed with locals and tourists alike, and had a live band with overpriced beer (£1 a beer!!). We arrived back at 5am after detouring on the way home via a mcdonalds. Sunday 24th August: We woke up with horrendous hangovers but soldiered on due to a busy day ahead of us.
