after some twisting and turning WERE LOST AGAIN hahahahahah hahahah we took the wrong turn. coincidencially were going BACK AGAIN to furadouro. hahahhaah hahahaha.
so we just basically followed a dirtroad going to cortegaca which has a camping sign on it. the road was a bit bumpy and left and right are full of pine trees. it was a nice place to park the car and just spend a night. but the girls needed a place with a toilet. so much for ben thinking about catching people "dogging" in the woods! hahahaha hahah haha i laugh everytime i remember it! hahahah haha i just couldnt stop laughing as we drove along.
when we got there - it was a damn first class camping place - with laundry, sports area, cooking facilities, supermarket, restaurant, pizzeria and etc! hahahaha hahaha hahahaha so much for roughing it up! :D. well to be honest, i kinda liked it, because i can have a shower - since for 2 days i havent took a bath, only washing my hair and face. it would be nice to have a cool and refreshing shower and i can clean myself up. it was a LIKE A MANNA FROM HEAVEN to us! hahahaha
but before we can get there - we have to stop outside and register - it was 3.50 euros per person, lori has to get our passport - but i have to come with her too - because i only have an extension passport and it it has a separate paper - i would kill the receptionist if she would lost it so i better come! :D hehehehehe.
its a long long long long process - i think it took us 40 minutes just to wait. finally we have the tag for the car and nametags so we can use it to go out and in the campsite.
now a big mean bald looking guy guided us to our camp site. he was riding a bike so its easy for him in the road, when we got there he just basically pointed to us that the place is for cars withouth speaking and went off. hahahahaahaha.
after robbocock got settled, we were so excited to explore the campsite! as it said so in the sign there WAS a pool hall, so we were so excited to play pool again, but after some minutes of searching, there wasnt any, that was weird. now the campsite was well REALLY A CAMPSITE WITH BIG TRAILERS parked - i mean there were more trailers than tents!. some trailers even have gardens on them! and some trailers looked so cozy they were almost like home! as we were walking, we couldnt helped being stared at.
then the campsite also advetised that they have a swimming pool! oh my god! we searched for it - but we found NOTHING, then it dawned on me of how completely idiotic i am - it meant that the ocean which was only a hundred meters was the swimming grounds! hahahha how idiotic i am! hahaha
so after some boring exploration, we headed into the big cafe restautant, beside it was a pizzeria!!! and we decided to have pizzas! but it was closed! arrghh so much for pizza that night. then beside the cafe resto was a mini grocery shop we went there, nothing fancy - they sell pots and pans, shampoos, soaps and some items we dont need! hahahhaa and worst was that they sell swimsuits with neon colors and plastic silky material which no one would wear! hahha i mean my god! if i was to sell something, i would sell something useful! hahaha
so we went inside the cafe resto, a movie was playing on the tv - forgot about it - something like terminator? hahaha but it was well in portuguese.
then i asked alex jokingly if he can buy me a drink, i wansnt serious about it. but amazingly - A MIRACLE - he bought a drink for me, i was open mouthed! HIM DOING THAT?! hahahaha alex was my enemy here in the trip! lol i think it was truce as he bought me that can of coke!
when we got back to robbococks place, we were so hungry so its time for dinner! it was about 9-9:30 pm there was still sunlight.
BUT WAIT - i am an ingredients conscious since i only eat pork, beef and chicken and 3 kinds of fish i read the ingredients - it said carne de ternera! i dont know what that is - and since in germany most ravioli products are "geflügel" and i dont eat that because its mostly chicken mixed with turkey and most birds like truthahn whici i dont eat and i dont like (long story) so what to do?!!! i am so hungry - so i called mami (my bestfriend ana in germany hahaha yes i am crazy - since she is spanish) and explained what carne de ternera is - she just said its ground beef hahah whew! then i apologized to her that were not driving anymore to andalucia her home - because of lack of time and we only have one driver.
so finally i ate my ravioli! well it was.. uhm COLD hahahaha i ate only the half and gave it to ben! :D lori said that there are still many foods its for everyone! thanks lori bird! :D
its getting dark - the other campers started to make fire - coz its really cold and chilly, but we dont have anything to make fires - i mean noting to keep the fire woods together, awww fuck whattahajeck were in the most furthest area of the campsite - nobody cares! hahahaha so i started gathering dried woods i even gathered some pine cones - i didnt know that its dangerous to burn pine cones! hahahahaha hahahaha.
lori went first to take a shower - so she was gone - then the bald mean looking guy came to us - he was asking for something! i didnt understood him! i hid behind the car and let rubs and robbo and ben and hannah entertain him! hahahahahahahaha.
as i went to the toilet to know what you what - whattafuck! there were no toilet bowls! hahahahaha - sorry if your eating and reading this. i had to hahaha ok nevermind i wont talk about thhis! hahahahhahaah all i can say - it was a struggle! then alex went inside the toilets and banging the doors if i am inside the cubicle or not and threathened to peep through the doors, i told alex if he would do that i will never ever speak to him again! hahahhahaha. i also showered which was.
at the campfire - the guys were sharing stories about their lives - ben asked me a couple of question some of them i refute to answer! hahahahahahaha showbiz! hahahaahahaha.
then suddenly alex was complaning that his skin hurts and burns - then we all took a look at at and oh my god!!! his back had 2nd degree burns! he stayed in the sun at furadouro for a long time withouth sunblock! i felt sorry for the boy - but i cant hahaha! hahahahaha. and the worst part was - he kept dancing with his undies in the dark! hahahahah hahaha
we went to bed at around 11:00 pm, its still too early for me. since i always sleep at 1-2-3 am. but it doesnt matter we plan to leave very early tomorrow since the checkout time is 8:30 am.
