While we were resting near a house with many statues and shrines, the owner emerged with 2 bananas and a cold 2 litre bottle of ice tea for us. We filled our small bottle, choosing not to carry the lot.

On Highway 56, we wound down through the mountains to the coast once more and set up camp in a lovely park near Saga-Koen Railway Station, high above the sea with picnic table and toilets nearby – a lovely spot.
