Popayan was the light at the end of the tunnel for us. Once we got there we changed our euros, paid back our American sponsors, and waited impatiently for our salvation in the form of a DHL package with our credit cards. We sweated for a day extra but it arrived eventually much to our relief. We had some further pin number recollection problems but on our final attempt on both cards and after putting ourselves under a lot of unnecessary stress, we succeeded. We like to do things the hard way.
Apart from the credit cards, we didnīt do a whole lot in Popayan. The hostel we stayed in was really nice and owned by an equally nice Scottish couple Tony & Kim who were very helpful.

sympathy
i too felt a small twinkle of sympathy for ye last week but it only lasted 3-4 mins coz i quickly realised ye are havin a mighty time and ackin the bonhams 90% of the time ha ha

cant imagine the craic if that machine had swallowed the card on the last attempt,,,, NUTCASES......anyway,,,,mike ,,, next time ye are unluck or need cash etc just call either paul or I (not the ranch in cappacur) and we will promptly wire over some money to the nearest western union or bank etc,, else call auntie MOIRA as she has loads of SPARE CASH too ,,, eh moira,,, u readin this,,, i dont believe you,,,,,only way to prove it is to make a comment? ha ha

Anyway mike n skinners,,, i am well and just back from eurostar an hour ago as had to work in south coast of england today for 2 hours ..... is 10pm at nite now so i will go get some prawns or somethin in the chinese round the corner

Do ye reckon I should buy the rice or else put on some rice before I go and hope its not burnt when i come back in 6 mins?

smiles galore
