Nice bikes outside the store

Pineapple tart and tea

When you enter the store, the waitress would ask you if you would like to have tea. Tell her yes and she would serve you the above. After having the tart you can decide to buy or not. When I was there, there were already lots of people there some of the mare locals I supposed.

Next I when to Sugar and Spice to buy some nougats for my sis. The strawberry ones were quite nice. And had some tacos from the area for dinner forgot to take some pictures though.

Day 7

Nothing much today just stayed in the hostel, packed up and proceed to the airport.
