Shane wasn’t feeling well this morning, so we lounged around the hostel. Close to 1200 we finally left, but just to walk around. It was pouring down rain, it had been all morning. We bought some more chocolate and looked around for a certain someone’s gift. We’ve been trying to decide for a few weeks now what to get her and every time we see something that fits we chicken out. “Oh, I’m not sure if she’d really like it.” We knew what we wanted to get her, we knew where it was. But this place, it was at a flea market, wasn’t there for the day, because of the rain.
We weren’t impressed! We walked and walked and argued over what to do. Just as we decided to head home we wandered into one last store and found it, the best gift. How’s that for perseverance? We were stoked we’d found something after hours of looking.
We hung out at the hostel for a while longer, eating chocolate and drinking coffee, dreaming about our homecoming. When we were dried out two hours later we decided it was time for dinner. Again we left, into the pouring rain. We were soaked to the bone (a common theme the last week here) when we arrived at our chosen restaurant. It was as stuffy and stinky as a wet dog locked in a bathroom but we stayed. The food was amazing, mussels and fried and a long rack of perfectly tender ribs, with some awesome beers of course and the most perfect chocolate cake.
We went back to the hostel, showered and tried to sleep early, we just want it to be Monday!
