very good!!!
We bought some of the indigenous products produced here such as baskets for rolling and washing woolen blankets as souvenirs back home. We also indulged in activities such as kayaking, hiking and cycling during our stay here. The most exciting activity i involved in was fishing, i was taught how to trap fish by the friendly local fishermen here.
The green grassland was very satisfying to watch, the scenery was outstanding and the birds flying around really gave it an amazing finish. Also the blue waters of the river were really satisfying just to look at and the buildings design were also fabulous
