We got on a boat across the dirty water filled river mouth (assuming the murky nature of the water was due to the mixing of river and sea water!). It took about an hour and a half...most of which I slept through!
On arrival at the town we were all starving (we had picked up penny and ester at the port...they were on the tour the kids had just done and turned out to be really nice once we were not tired and grumpy!!) so headed for lunch! Sara and I had serious food envy having ordered a steak for 2 which arrived and had huge bones and not much meat...for 2 former veggies this was not a happy situation!
After lunch we mooched around the beautiful town in the sun...I have now decided that south American markets are just like markets all over the world-full of shit you don't need!!
For dinner we found an awesome restaurant which was beautifully decorated with bright colours and pictures! All food and drinks appeared to be made one at a time but we had only ordered snacks and cakes so this was fine...the 6 of us spent a lovely couple of hours eating rich chocolate slice full of dolche leche and drinking sangria (well that's what I had!) :)
The boat trip home was a bit bumpy (not generally an issue until Laurence who was sat next to me announced that he was a bad traveller!...all went well though and I was not covered in vomit at any point!) :)
Quick beer in the hostel then bed after another fantastic day! (stood on Sara's broken toe when I said goodbye to penny...she was brave but it clearly hurt A LOT...guilt feelings ensued!)
