Three drunken amigoes!

Today we awoke to a beautiful sunny day but were so freakin sore from the mammoth foot mission yesterday it was a struggle just to get down the stairs for the free breakkie! After breakkie both the other lads went back to bed corey complaining of sore eyes from looking at some much art and dougos calves were having random spasm fits (it was actually quite humerous his hold muscle would contract so hard then release haha)! So I was on my own for an adventure to the floating villages, flower markets and famous canal of mexican dragon boats! Of which none interested the boys and even me that much but it was something to do and i happen to score some new travel companions who later would become my "travelling danish dread hairdressers"!!!

So it was a bit of a mission getting to the floating villages catch a few subways here then walk there, jump on a bus overthere and eventully you come across some colourful boats floating in this god forsaken water (the street dogs didnt even consider going near it!).

Yeah, mission accomplished
So after some haggling and still getting ripped off we were off on our mexican version of a gongla tour around venice, i wish! Basically the boat trip was pretty lame, there were hundreds of other boats, some with douting couples, family parties even whole orchestra's playing for the visitors. We scored some beer off a floating deli and proceeded to get drunk as there wasnt much else happening, the trip lasted about an hour and half and considering the 2 hour commute just to get (which is actually far more interesting) it wasnt worth it. So it was back home were we found the other lads already getting stuck into the bar and before i knew it we were battling a bunch of american's to a 2ltr Corona drinkoff! They won but it was a very skeptical win that is for sure, not a drop spilt i think was the main rule and here was this US dude drenched to the bone with beer, "not a good chugger is he" as Obi WON Kenobi would say!

Well the night only got better, my Danish Dames kicked into hairdressing mode and dreaded my hair, finally i fulfilled my No.

What a pretty ponytail, and who is that beautiful man behind me...
9 goal whilst travelling overseas to get rastas (by the way i have a list of a 150 things to do, good way to travel i say), so to celebrate we drunl lots of tequilla dance on the bar and basically played a lot of stupid games it was awesome. When the bar closed dougo nd one of the danish lasses went to get more beer(successfully mine you) but were not aloowed to bring it back into the hostel so they sat of the street drinking it, when a police car went by! Before they knew it they had stopped and were b-lining it straight for them, as they tried to secretly pour the evidence down the drain the cops had dougo up against the wall and the probing and proding began for about an hour! Obviously trying to get money out of the two, the policemen gave up when they realise that between them they only had a dollar but it was funny seeing duggo get searched and nearly thrown in prison again (not the first near case scenario either but he never ends up in the slammer, the secret play dumb and dont speak any spanish!).
Classic duggers
So tommorrow ill be waking up with new hair and heading off to puerto escondido for some WAVES, freal yeah surf sun and BABES! peace out everyone xxxx
