Dinner time!!

We decided to stay in the area that night, find a camp ground etc and pull up in our beast. We drove for awhile following the signs leading us to a campsite. It waa fairly nice one, where we all had to pay appox 4€ each for the night and got our own little piece of land. Looked pretty rough - we would be sleeping in the car again by the looks of things.

We checked out the grounds and their facillities... not being able to find the gamesroom!! The toilets even had the traditional drophole which a lot of Prtugese and Spanish are used to. Just on up though they had the regular toilets.. poor Lauro though didn't realise and came back with his customary 'What the Fuck?'s at having do go over a drophole. Sorry Lauro - had to mention that, was too funny! At one stage the park ranger guy came around to issue us new tags for some reason.

The beast
It was a massive battle to communicate but eventually we gave him what he wanted and the matter was resolved..even if i still don't know what the hell he was on about!!

We dragged all our crap out of the car and at what little of our food we had left, some of it not so nice after sitting in the sun that day. I also dragged out the tequilla and started drinking that. It was a bit chilly so we decided to make a bonfire, even though I don't think we were supposed to. That was fun, hanging round that for awhile, just chilling out and drinking, Alex bitching about his sun burn =P Eventually we let the fire day out and as everyone had bugger sleep the night before and was a little fried from the sun, set up the beast for the night. I was a lil tipsy so went for a walk around the park with Ben to try shake it off. Once in the beast though, Alex had managed to flatten out the seat a bit more by taking out all the shopping bags. So it was a much more comfy sleep - what with the tequilla and all!
