It´s a bit of a long haul back down here from Mancora, we were told maybe 17 hours, but as experienced South American high class pleasure seekers, we took this with a pinch of salt and just took what was coming to us.  Infact it was 24 hours later that we finally got off the bus and made our way back to San isidro hostel where we stayed last time. All three of us had one thing on our mind after twenty four hours on the bus .....and it wasn´t having a shower !!! So it was bags down and straight out to throw some grog back !!!! Not to much though because we had a date the next day at 7 with Si the slion, and his Pingo mates.

Next day we were up raring to go , with only the slight blurring of hangovers, and out the door at 7.

15 and heading to the port for the best boat trip South America has to offer.....and we got it even cheaper this time , at only 40 soles it´s an absolute screaming bargain.

Well what a fantastic trip we had, this time we got to the port and instead of mist to greet us there was just brilliant sunshine....and the usual mob of enormous pelicans. We got on our speedboat and headed out,  Ria and I knew what to expect but I think Nick, Neil or Sui ) take your pick as ) was amazed by the whole thing !!!! An  added bonus to this trip was the presence of a large pod of dolphins that swam around the boat as soon as we left the port. They stayed with us for a while and then it was the turn of the Boobies ,he he he, Pelicans, Penguins and Vultures. Wow, just incredible and so many of them, then onto the slions who were literally everywhere honking and barking, biting each other and knocking eachother into the water, which was pretty rough and chucking them around quite alot as well.

BOOBIES...the champion shitters!!!!
Our guide this time was really good, very informative and funny, for instance I bet you didn´t know that the boobie is actually the champion shitter out of all sea birds and if left to it´s own devices would end up sitting on a thirty meter high pile of crap after a year !!!!!!! Strange but true....didn´t I promise you an interesting fact or three in the last blog ???????????????? Also that when a male slion reaches the age of three it´s dad tries to murder it as it´s jeolous of it´s youth and good looks ??????????????? again true. Also, no that´ll do on the interesting facts front, can´t iuse up all the good ones so early, got to save something for the end...

We had an absolutely wicked time on the trip and again it flew past and we were heading back to port far too soon, the dolphins came back to see us though on the way home and performed some pretty impressive jumps and circles of the boat for us.

let me up , let me up!!!!
....and we came home with a couple of souvenirs in our hair from the overexcited boobies !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh and did you know that sea lions can swim upto forty miles an hour ????????? not such an interesting fact but there you go, three facts in just one blog, surely that makes up for the poor quality of a couple of my more recent warblings......no.........oh well ................this blog is almost over, just Lima to go now, boo hoo hoo, can´t believe it´s gone so quick, you know that´ll you´ll miss us when we´re gone.......
