It was gorgeous when we arrived!!
The mountain ranges were stunning!!
Courtney and I checked into the same room and then found out that her four mates that were arriving that arv were in the same apartment so it would just be the six of us.

It is an enlargement of Track Number 33
and is very clear and easy to read
We decided not to waste any
time and got directions for a good hike.
Map in hand we headed off.
The track was number thirty-three
and some of the scenery was amazing!! - so many trees and greenery.
The hike took about three hours to get to a waterfall.
Some of the tracks were very small and very steep but it was good fun.
We got to the top and the waterfall
wasn't actually that great but it was cool to see the rock climbers
all over either side of it.
We sat for a bit and took some photos then decided to head back.
It was at that moment that
the heavens opened and down came the rain!! - and it didn't stop!!
- all two-and-a-half hours down the hill!!
It was slippery and the tracks were like creeks!!
We got to a restaurant and called a taxi to go the rest of the way.
Court's friends were there when we got back and after a warm shower and some thawing out we got acquainted.
We then headed to the bar for
some dinner and drinks.
I had a bit of a headache and didn't last long but Court, Scott, Troy, Blake and Ashley made a night of it.
The next morning the rain still hadn't stopped.
Court and I went and got some lunch and then went to the pub to watch the cricket - the last day of the Third Ashes Test.
I had my journal with me and wrote in that while watching the telly.
We ordered dinner and watched the end of the Match - it was a draw which was lucky for the Australians I think!!
Then it was happy hour.
We all drank til close then the boys went out to a club.
They got home and all came into our room and proceeded to have a pile up on me - slightly scary at 3.00am but all good fun!!
Scott got lost going back to his room and ended up in bed between another couple - OOPS!!
Poor thing was very embarrased and we all gave him a hard time!!
It was still raining the next day so after I checked out I went and hung out in the boys room until I had to go.
It might have been more fun
in St Johann had the weather been better but despite the rain
we had a great time.
Court's mates were a lot of fun and that made up for being house bound!
