Is anybody here? No...? Nice!

We took a combi (a van crammed full of people, 23 in this case) to some cabañas a kilometer before the town of Zorritos. Finally we found a place (Casa de Grillo) that was nice and where things were mellow, mostly because, well, there was nobody there. We stayed in a rustic little cabaña, close to the beach. Like in the cabañas, there was nobody at the beach except for hundreds of crabs, which specialized in running away from us or straight into the sea. It looked like they were committing suicide, but they probably know better. The sun was our only enemy, as it beats down terribly on you because we are so close to the equatorial line. So we got a bit burned, cooked dinner on a woooden "stove" (some dry sticks, some metals boles to keep the pot over the fire) and just relaxed for two days.

We did venture into the town on the first day as we headed to find some food, and man was that a terrible sight. It was May 1st so Labour day, meaning that the men by 1 in the afternoon are well onto their ways to get plastered. This would not be as reproachable if they were not, 1) hitting on women in disgusting ways, 2) it was about 100 degrees in the shade. Since these two things did occur, we found the one family restaurant of the town and ate there peacefully, and then returned to the cabaña to never go back to town. Did we mention that this trip just gets hotter and hotter?
