Had the first decent nights sleep since I left home last night, had a good ocho hours sleep in the penthouse. Had my own TV, air con, shower and balcony, very very nice, shame it was for only uno night. Just moved our stuff back into the double bed cell where I'll be staying for 2 nights, not brilliant but much better than the dorms. 8 of the guys from the trip are next door in a dorm and it is unbelievably hot in there and stinks like the tongue of a dead dog, as you can imagine with all them sweaty bodies and farting going on!
Today is very cloudy so far and it has just started to pour down. I both don't fancy doing much walking so it looks like a boring day ahead. Its 11.30am now and I will update later,

Well what a day
The group is starting to gel really well because of the time together. I think if we had got straight on the bikes we would still be getting to know each other so its a good thing we have had this time together.
Was talking with Rob today and found out he and another guy had been held up by gun point just round the corner from the hostel and we have had other reports of other people being confronted so its looking like a pretty dodgy place. They told the would be robber to piss off and they are OK so no harm done.
We went down to the bar at about 6.30 for a few drinks then at 8 me, Rich, Nigel, Martin, and a traveler from the hostel, Sarah went to the steak house down the road for some din dins. We all had a really good laugh and some fantastic food. The medallion steak was amazing!
It was then back to the hostel bar where pretty much all the group where hanging out having some drinks and getting louder and louder and talking about 'she wees' as you do on a drunken evening
Went to bed about 11.30pm and went straight to sleep. Got woken up about 1.30 by a man at reception talking away with the loudest booming voice I have ever heard. The hostel has a big open space in the middle that goes from the bottom floor to the top and it is one big echo chamber so you can hear someones conversation even though they are 4 or 5 floors away.
The bar then kicked out about 2am and all the noisy ignorant shit bags came out and made more noise, so not a good nights sleep, AGAIN!
Adios for now
