Oktoberfest 2014

But before long the tranquillity was invaded by these two: Carmen and Vreni from Germany. Their arrival was rather well timed as today was Oktoberfest at Rana Azul.

I doubt these two were even born when Trainspotting came out.

The next day I took the girls out to Dolphin Bay

Mi lancha es su lancha!

We didn’t see any dolphins, as sometimes happens in Dolphin Bay, so we thought we’d drop in on Bill and Janis.

“Hey Janis, what do you think of my hat?”

Afterwards we returned to the island and I put Carmen and Vreni to work in the garden.

Woohahahahaha!!

That night they made dinner and then I proceed to kick their asses at Shithead. Probably.

I guarantee she’s not holding all the aces… ‘cos I’m holding all the aces!

The next day it was time to return these little poppets back from whence they came.

Well, I didn’t want Campesino to worry.
