By that stage, which was around midday, the queue for the tower had reached 4 o'clock, with 2 places left for the 4 o'clock, and 10 for the 5 o'clock.
That sealed our fate- we needed to be at the airport by 5, so we couldn't go up the tower. We weren't too disappointed, and instead just had a walk around, and a long lunch.
The restaurant was recommended in tripadvisor, and the food was yummy. We browsed the many souvenir stalls too, and did a little shopping.I'm including a photo of the poolside at the hotel, with funky lilac furniture in the background. It was all plastic, but from a distance didn't look it, and was quite comfortable to sit on, and it has been in part the inspiration for my painting my own outdoor furniture pink.
This holiday diary seems to have taken longer than the actual holiday. I have a few last photos that I'll be posting for Black and White Wednesday, then it's onto a new topic (at last!).
