. About a dozen of us cruisers got together and booked a land tour u to the 3000 meter mountain and tour the area around there. It was a two day tour with a night in a mountain lodge. After all day in the tour bus we arrived at the mountain lodge just before dinner. Everybody agreed to meet at the bar in half an hour.

for an hour letting non-stop hot water pour over our bodies. That was such a luxury for a cruiser that we talked about it for months after we got back to our boats. Very few remembered the mountain.
