At 06:00 we awake both of us. Eef gets up first and wants to go to Bodegon Johnny to buy dog food. Not yet open. At 07:00 we try again, still not open and we walk to the beach and back. At 07:30 we already can have breakfast and we’re done at 08:00 and by that time the supermarket is already open. We buy for 8500 Bs 1 kilogram of Pedigree and go for the lookout of a Jack Russell on high feet and with long nipples and a litter. We see some neglected dogs and give them half of the bag. We don’t think we got the right ones, so we keep 0.5 kilo. Then we return to the hotel and call Yvonne. They are at school and we say we will come at their house by taxi. Ira called in the meantime and the planning changed gain. Tomorrow diving, Sunday Coche and Tuesday Los Roques; we’ll see. The taxi drops us off in Altagracia for 25000 Bs and then we go with Davy, Yvonne, Jean and Roza to Playa Zaragoza. Yvonne and Davy come a bit later, because the workmen are working on their doors and they need to buy some new handles. We swim and after about one hour Yvonne and Davy arrive with the cool-box, so we can drink cool beers and we enjoy the beach, sun and sea. We only need to be aware not to get sun burnt. At 14:00 we get hungry and we eat : three large pargo (red snapper) with rice, fries, vegetables, arepa and baked banana. The fish tastes wonderful. We can drink our own beers, but take two cocktails, so everyone can taste. We’re sitting under the palm trees at the Caribbean Sea, so everything is great. The whole feast costs 213000Bs, about 30 Euro. You can’t leave that for that money. At 16:00 Yvonne brings us to the square of Altagracia and we take a taxi back to Playa El Agua. We think we take a taxi without assurance – Union Juan griego – but the female taxi-driver brings us safely to the hotel through the heavy rains over the mountains. once we leave the beach we only see rain. The weather is a bit confused. We take a shower and drink an aperitif in the bar and enjoy the rest of the day here. Again we did not do a lot, but we had fun. One also knows that one won’t see Yvonne and Davy for a long time, so we need to take advantage of this now. We speak to Ira at 19:30 about some excursions and about the way of living here and then go to eat, not really a lot, because we already had a big fish today. At the restaurant a band starts to play and the Colombians see to it there is a lot of god atmosphere. We seek the quietness on our balcony, drink and smoke something and then go to bed.
