Show trip route
It was a bit sketchy walking through the dark streets when our bus got in at ten p.m., so we stayed at the first open hotel we came across: Hotel La Plaza. Normally we don't stay in hotels because its way out of our budget, but it seemed better to pay a little extra than getting robbed again. Plus this means we will have a quiet room to ourselves (no drunk roommates) to get some good sleep before tomorrow's bus rides.
Countdown to 2013: 30minutes- we are showering; 20minutes- washing clothes in the sink; 10minutes- one drink of wine from our water bottle; walk down to beach for fireworks...
The fireworks were about 30minutes long, but we both thought (and hoped) that it was going to end at several points throughout the show. I guess it's just not orchestrated as well as some we have seen in the US... but if we wanted a good show we would have stayed in Valpo. We watched pretty much all of the show and then went to bed, exhausted. Happy New Year!
