Where I stayed

With the Panda in our possession until 11 am, we thought it best to get up early and explore the surrounding villages for a couple of hours. No one really does anything around here until after 9am, so any breakfast at 8am is certainly out of the question. The villages we visit are very quiet, with most of their residents still sleeping, we get to explore these near ghost towns at our leisure.

We spot donkeys, giant bees and a lonely goat half way up a sheer cliff bleating "how the hell am I gonna get down from here!" Figs grow wild on the roadside and there seems to be a church for every house.

I guess we forgot to check the fuel situation and soon after one of our hill climbs the warning light pops on. Oops. Luckily the run home is all down hill and we manage to roll the whole way home without using any petrol or brakes, just slowing it down with the gears! Challenge completed!

So back at our hotel, its time to cool off with a swim. Luck would have it that we manage to tap into the hotel wifi and listen to the West Coast Eagles game against Gold Coast, while the girls have a frolic in the pool. Well, time for a beer then.

And so it begins.

Many more hours of good times pass at the pool, swimming, sun baking, making friends with the locals and some British visitors who love our accent.

Not quite sure how it happened but soon enough the barman is sending free tequilas our way, and making us "special cocktails" which seem to be mostly vodka or whatever spirit he can get his hands on.

Then more free tequila.

Before you know it Mish is behind the bar performing some sort of self service.
I know tomorrow is not going to be pretty by this point.

We walk to town to have some kebabs, then back to our porch for a few more ales. I guess we forgot we ate coz then there is pizza, our Dutch neighbour is hanging out with us, and then we all crash and burn out before 10pm.

I would not want to be any of us tomorrow, coz that is gonna hurt.
