After a good sleep we were ready to leave. Check out time was at 9:30am, but we did stay until 10am, hehe. When we arrived to the hotel, I noticed they had several brochures and pamphletes. I picked up the ones I found the most interesting. We didn't have a plan for that day, so whatever sounds fun, would work. Actually the idea was doing something nearby and then start driving back to Gold Coast.
Kumar was talking about going somewhere to get something to eat, when I remember a brochure about an Open Market, where we could also find food. Yay! An Open Market! We were so lucky to be there on Wednesday, since the Open Market works just on Wed and Sun. After a short drive we noticed we were getting closer. The empty road started to get packed.
The place was packed with families. Why were there so many children? Shouldn't they be at school? Oh, that's right, they also had a week off. There were many stalls with offering different things, but first we should find food. Ok, let's have a cup of nice coffee. The guys got sausage at a German stall, while I got a salad wrap. I guess this wasn't breakfast but more a brunch, hihi.
Now, it was time to walk around. Kumar and Kate were a bit tired, so Lalo and me started to explore the market. There were many things to check, including nice handicraft, art pieces, clothing and even ginger beer! Actually I think it was ginger ale, couldn't feel any alcohol, but was very refreshing. The day wasn't that sunny, but hot.
The market continued at the other side of the road. And this part was more about handicraft and souveniers. Befire leaving Lima I asked my parents to come to Oz for my graduation and hope they do so. If they visit Gold Coast, I'd take them to Eumundi. I'm sure they would like this small town. The local cinema, stores and the whole town had a certain charm.
Well, it was time to keep on moving. In our way to Eumundi we saw again the signs for the Ginger Factory, so this would be our next stop. Looking forward to get a picture with a giant Ginger Bread :)
