We went back to bed and Emma had slept through it all..... Olli volunteered to keep an eye on the fire..... but dozed off within 5 minutes. So I added another log and lay there, huddled in my sleeping bag, listening to the soft roar of the flames, watching the flickering of the flames through the air holes onto the tent cloth, letting my mind go empty and after a while I dozed off again, too.
And between packing, eating lunch, talking to folks a last time we also checked out the cooking pit. There was no small surprise to learn that eventually the stones therein reached a scorching 450C and that a large piece of rump steak was wrapped in moss, put in between the stones and left to cook over time.... just like that. 1 to 1,5 hrs for every kilo of meat if I understood correctly.
