Unfortunately, Chris and I didn't have our truck so the bar called a taxi and Karin and her friends waited with us until it came. They were staying at the hotel next to the restaurant so they didn't have far to go. When our taxi arrived we said our goodbyes and all five of us ran outside into the cold sheets of rain. Once Chris and I arrived at our taxi (we sat in the back of a covered pick-up truck) we were thoroughly soaked. We rode back to our hotel on the flooded main street where people were trying to drive their motor bikes in knee-deep flowing water. It was insane! While it only took us about 10 minutes to get back to our hotel, we were slightly terrified, yet we laughed the entire way.
We had such a great time with Karin and her friends. Hopefully we'll meet again in Boston or, one of our favorite places, Deutschland. Let's hope the weather is better next time!
