GUESS WHAT ??????????????????

We were lying on the beach yeaterday when we were hit by a sudden hazy memory. Through the alcohol induced haze of christmas in KL a vague memory of loading our first four months of travel vid´s from Sid onto Ria´s dads laptop so as to make dvd´s was immerging. We weren´t able to make them as that was just one step too far for us technodeficients but maybe, just maybe we left them on his comp............Did we dream it or did it really happen ???????? So it was off to the phone and five minutes later the news is in...............................................................................................

YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE HHHHHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

WOOP WOOP HONK HONK PARP DIDDLEY PARP PARP POOP POOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOP

YOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOUUUUUUUUUUUU BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAUTY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I´m sure you´ve guessed by now, but the news was good, the whole of India, our first trip to Lipe and some of our time in KL all safe and sound !!!!!!!!!!! Oh how we laughed and danced in the street.

nice look
At least we´ve got half our trip safe. It´s still an arse that we´ve lost some of our moon but from now on I promise to read the old destruction booklet for every new piece of technology bought so that we´ll never end up in a situation like this again........well I´ll give it a go anyway.

So, Mancora.............we´ve been here three nights and we´ve loved it. The beach is huge and even if it wasn´t it´s still a beach and so really cool!!!!´The sun´s been out out most of the time and the sea is cold but refreshing, what else could you want, We´ve met up with a couple of guys who were on our bus from Puno to Pisco and had a drunken old night with them, Adam the youngest one ( as opposed to the slightly older one matt who now also wants a new tat ) is now sporting a new tat between his shoulder blades but this had always been his intention luckily !!! We have eaten some nice cheap local food, crevitso ( spelling could well be wrong ) was the surprise favourite, surprise as it is basically just raw fish which has been slightly cooked by the acid of the lime juice squeezed on it.

larging it on the beach
Now I don´t even really like fish but this stuff was really good, maybe it was the red onion that it was mixed with, who knows. We ended the evening sitting in the sea on some stolen, ahem sorry borrowed and later returned, chairs , drinking a bottle of white rum and watching phospheresence ( defo spelt wrong ) wash over our feet and legs...very cool !!!!!!

We managed to find a great place to stay again, called La Casa de Betty, really nice room, private bathroom, big old balcony and only 30 soles ( 10 dollars ) a night. Compare that to this right old dump we looked at called Angels dela mar, where they wanted the same for a stinking dirty concrete floored room where the water didn´t work, there weren´t any curtains and the smell of wee made your eyes hurt and you can imagine we were well happy !!!!

Mancora has really helped recharge our batteries and although we´ll never forget Sid who was a very faithful friend and companion for eight months until he was evilly taken from us, the pain is starting to fade a little.

that's gonna sting!!!!!
Maybe Sid 2 might be found somewhere in Quito, we´ll just have to wait and see. We´ve got just over two weeks left now and we´re meeting our friend Nick in Quito tomorrow night. Just three buses to take to get there and one most likely dodgy border crossing to negotiate. I can´t believe we´re into the final few weeks, what an amazing journey we´ve had and we´ve still got some incredible places to see yet. Ecuador here we come.
