... Now, I'm no economist, but surely thats no good for a nations economy. Eventually we came to Cabo Polonio which is an amazing place. Only authorised vehicles are allowed on the peninsula so we had to leave our car and get on a 4WD lorry. 20 minutes later, we arrived battered and bruised at one of the most amazing places I've seen.
