Last night, after eating what most people seemed to consider a meal for three, a couple staying at the hostel persuaded the owner to get the guitars out and have a jam. Normally, I stay away from things like this, as it usually involves an acoustic guitar (which I don't play particularly well), and singing (which according to most people I do even less well). Last night, however, was slightly different. Trey, the owner of the hostel, actually had a mini-rehearsal room, with drums, mics, guitars, and more importantly for me, a bass. Sweet ! For a random selection of people in a hostel, we managed to put a few tunes together, and it was great fun as we played into the night. On a personal note, I have missed the creative energy of playing in a band, and the night reminded me of how fun it can be. Maybe I'll join a band again when I get back to England… Who knows !
Anyhow, I left the hostel at just gone 07.30 in the morning, which is a little later than I would have liked, given that I had 120 kms to cover. That said, the road was not too demanding, and I made my destination of Ciudad Neily in good time. I ended up staying in Hotel Elvira, but the Mistress of the Dark never did turn up !!
