Yet another memory

Well, another South America memory has popped up...having a lovely sing-a-long-a-ling into the wee hours of the morning with the ballsome boys from the country - Cormac, James and Liam. The guitar was in full flow, the rum was in even fuller flow, and our singing was going above the beyond beyond. Fun times!

So, general songs were being pulled out of the hat, and we were all having a great time, lying in our hammocks and lapping up the happiness of a sweet Colombian sun rising above the Caribbean sea, when the guitar was passed to Kee. He plucked away for a while, as we all chatted and lazed, foggy with the edges of drunkeness bordering on hangover, then began breaking into Nirvana's 'My Girl' we all sang along to the first half of the song with enthusiasm, when suddenly we all simultaneously broke into the unplugged version. So, with the first twinges of a red dawn lighting up the sky, most of the hostel asleep apart from our handful of Irish lying about in the hammocks, we belted out the WHERE DID YOU SLEEP LAST NIGHT at the top of our lungs, screaming it into the sky with passion, laughter, and not a little rum! One of the best nights out of the entire trip, and a memory that will stay with me for such a long time...

God, those nights can never be again, but as Ed always tells me, don't be sad it's over, be glad it happened!
