Not much to report today, Alice is feeling a mixture of fed-up, too hot, homesick and sore shoulder! My mummyness is not cutting it today. I have wash some more clothes, for both of us, in readiness for our move early on Thursday. I was on the balcony and spotted a flip flop seller down in the street so i hot footed it downstairs and chased her, well followed really, and we started a conversation about the fact that I need size 10 and she only has 8's. I spotted a rather attractive looking english guy and suggested that I might borrow his feet to measure the flip flops for Ben. He, and his girl friend, were more than willing to help ( I am sure they thought I was barking!) I purchased the said flip flops, having decided that 8's were better than nothing.
Alice and I then watched Amazing Joe Young, a film about a rather plastic looking Gorilla, it was ok. We then had french bread and cheese for lunch. Alice is writing postcards and if it stops raining we will walk across to the post box, on the other side of the lake.
Just tomorrow left before we can rejoin the group. I spoke to Battye last night, everyone is more or less ok, lots of aching limbs and scrapes etc but in quite good spirits. They are taking some kind of transport for the majority of the last bit of the trek as I beleive it is similar to Thursdays terrain. They are now calling the mountain, "Death Mountain"!
All for now, speak soon
