At 1115 hrs stopped at same restaurant as outgoing journey for the same food. After that, stopped to buy fruit (melon, grapes) along the road, and we were back in the city by 1400 hrs. Group were shopping while I settled payments through the bank. I think everyone went to the departmental store in the afternoon before dinner. It never fails to amaze me how some people lag way behind during the trek in the mountains, but when it comes to walking to the department store, I have trouble catching up.
Tonight we decided, on the advice of Olga, to go for dinner in a "French" restaurant Riviera. It was walking distance, and took an eternity, for a hungry stomach, waiting for everyone to wait for Olga or Lorena to translate from Russian menu and then decide what to have. I ended up with emaciated lamb ribs with chips. It was also Siew Mai's birthday and we had cake, while Olga presented her flowers and a pendant.
The pictures and video are of the following night's dinner as not many photos today.
