So onto the 16 hour bus we go, up to mancora at the top of peru. we arrived in the morning and found a hotel on the beach front, sol y mar, not great but cheap and right on the beach. spent that day swimming and laying in the sun (under a brolly cause it was bloody hot!) ate food and shopped at the market stalls. next day up early for a walk on the beach and a terrace breakfast (was awesome!!) drank some beer and rested for the morning, had lunch then another rest (was hard work!) then time for the surfing lessons. thats right we gave it a go.
best word to describe it was scary! they put us on waves that they had had the national surf comp on the day before! they were huge!!! our instructors were just about getting as much of a pummeling as we were! there were also about 30 proper surfers out so there were many surf board in face close calls! after that it was more beer, then a bottle of rum and a bit more resting,
next day was much of the same, had a bus at 11.30pm so just spent the day enjoying the company of or canadian friends. they left to go south and we were off north into ecuador.
