Like Dr. King said, we WILL get to the top of the mountain
...or to the top of that hill. whatever. The point is we spent the day taking a hike to the top of Cerro San Cristobal, atop which sits the famous statue of the Virgin of the Immaculate Conception. You can either take a literal hike (which of course we did not) or take the funicular which is basically just a fancy word for cable car.
It was doubtful whether we'd take the funicular since Thomasin is afraid of heights. She spent the whole ride crouched down until we reached the top. It was funny mostly because of the looks on the people's faces standing next to us. While she did not pee her pants, I of course tell everyone she did....because she totally did.
