What a great beach

The rock and roll lifestyle is definately back again and look ........and so is the apostrophe´.....HONK HONK...PARP PARP.......HONK HONK.....PARP PARP.......HONK HONK.........PARP PAAAAAAAARRRRRRP

Breakie, beach, burn, booze, beach ,booze, balcony, burger, bed.................that´s just a small taste of Mancora life for you !!!! Obviously we have done some things that don´t begin with a B but that would ruin the whole alliteration pattern so we´ll forget about those for the moment.

Mancora is just fantastic, the beach, the cliff, the amazing food ( NOT ) and all the people , it{s just great to be back.

We´ve had an absolutely cracking time here, really living it up for the final week of our moon thanks to Nick, the liver has put in a transfer request though, I think it´ll be happy when  the time comes to head home so it can have a little rest !!!!!!!!!! We were supposed to leave on Saturday night but due to a combination of a party at the hostel, laziness, having far too much fun, loving the beach and to be perfectly honest, no real interest in seeing a Moche Pyramid or infact actually knowing what one is!!!!, we decided against heading to Trujillo and stayed an extra couple of days here.

If you like Pina aaaa colada
Well you´ve got to be true to yourself really haven´t you, and I think it´s fair to say that the three of us have got more interest in drinking lots of cheap booze and having a laugh than wandering around old archaeological sights pretending we{re interested !!!!. So it´s a thumbs down to the pyramids and a thumbs up to our Carribean mate Ron and his Russian partner in crime Vladymir Smirnoff and another couple of days to find South Americas ultimate burger and to buy Mancora out of 'yellow'!!!!

Jesus what a load of old crap I´ve just written Blah blah blah blah blah, sorry , I really will try harder on the next one, maybe chuck in some interesting points or maybe, you never know, possibly even something useful !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Anyway if anyone has actually made it this far down the page without falling asleep or putting their head in an oven , thanks for the effort , now go and have a nice cup of tea and a cheese and onion sandwich as a reward ( I would kill for a three cheese and onion doorstep at the mo, South American fine dining is sorely lacking !!!! ) and contemplate what you did so wrong in your last life to mean that you had to put yourself through reading  the last several hundred words!!!!!!!!!!!

So it{s goodbye to Mancora, au revoir to Giblet man, Geronimo, Cumonhisface, the surfing dog and his owner, the trustifarians, prep school,all the robbing stallholders, seyanara to all the short leg long bodies, puking Aussie, Jenny from the block, Wolfcreek, Chezza, the sausage eater who fancies Nick and au wiedersane ( I have really got to sort out my spelling !!!!!) to gimp boy, wooden leg, the two prostitutes from the corner, Cheryl from the beach, Betty, old bloke who let us in at night, all the ladro and everyone else we{ve met here and hi to Si the slion, it{s time to head back to Pisco and P P P P P P P P P P P P P P P P P P P Pick up a penguin !!!!!!

and where the hell has the apostrophe disappeared to again !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh shit , just remembered we took a tuk tuk ride out to the hot springs here today.

thermal bath anyone???? no didn't think so!!!
.......well if you can call them that, hot they were, springs is debatable !!! It was great fun though, we jumped into the tukker and headed out into the wilderness for an hour, our driver got pulled over and fined for no documents and then we bumped and grinded ) he he he ) into the bush. Through rivers and across vast open deserts we went, until finally we arrived at what can only be described as a sheep dipping station, a nice dipping station but that´s what it looked like !!!! When we finally got there our driver was so exhausted he collapsed on a bench and fell straight to sleep, didn´t even bother watching the strange Gringo´s go into the drain overflow !!!!!!!!  You know the  bit in star wars where they´re in the rubbish dump about to be squashed and the long necked creature emerges, well that´s what it was like as we were wallowing around in the slightly wee smelling gunk always expecting to be pulled under and having to hope that Han Solo turned up at the vital moment to save the day!!!! It´s in an amazing setting and well worth the trip out there.
now that's a cool dog!!!!
......I bet those sheep love it when it´s bath time, I know the ones we saw looked a bit put out to see three high class pleasure seekers enjoying their pool.

Another piece of essential info though for all you would be visitors to Mancora , go and visit Neils Bar, you,ll find it near Casa de Betty, it,s on a balcony overlooking the street, surely one of the greatest most relaxed and fun places to visit in South America, Neil,s a good host and the drinks are cheap. We spent hours here, apparently he,s thinking of opening similar bars in other cities, my heart says yes, my liver says no......
