Luxury Living

sunny 25 °C

The next day, we got up well late again, and decided to walk the other way from the Rotana Hotel.

We followed the coast down to some little beach, and sat down on some rickety table on a cliff above the beach. Some kid came trying to charge us for the table, so we left, and instead we rocked down to a restaurant a little way down the road. We hadn't eaten anything yet, and had walked a good couple of kilometres, so we settled down to eat. The place we were at looked expensive, but in reality the food was totally grimy. The water tasted of fluoride, burnt chicken. Pretty rank, so when they tried to charge us 800, we flipped out, and argued with them until they agreed to 500. They were well pissed off, but we just refused to give them any more, we just left.

Tbh not very much else happened, we went back to the hotel, then to the internet cafe. Here, Kit found that he'd got into UCL for English, so we went back to the Italian Corner to celebrate. We ate awesomely for 600-odd, and then went back to Cactus at 1 AM for Pudding, since they had a wicked Chocolate Cake on the cheap. Then we chilled back down to our hotel and slept. We had decided that the next day we were going to hitch down to Tartus.
