On the night we all went out with Steve and Christine on a bar crawl organised by the hostel. Unfortunately we were refused by the bouncer. First he held Amy back for not having the right I.D. and then Jose because of his Brazilian driving license not having his date of birth in English. The bouncer failed to understand that in Brazil they speak Portuguese and it all got a bit heated at the door and resulted in Amy calling him a "fucking cock" and him telling us to "fuck of back to Pommy Land". We ended up drinking in an Irish Bar similar to every Irish bar around the world where I bumped into a lad who stayed at Manly Backpackers, who incidentally loves Surfers. Each to their own I suppose.
The next day we went to Wet and Wild, a pretty good water park but again it rained. The highlights of the day was seeing Amanda go down the Kamikaze sitting up straight, which panicked the lifeguard at the top of the slide and Shipley thinking he had won on the slide where you can race each other only to be given a false start.
After that we decided to head straight down to Byron Bay. Which we had been told is everything Surfers is not.
