All i recall saying is "dude hurry up, there are alot of people"!!! as i strutted down the main street of Punta Del Diablo (PDD) in pigeon smugglers (y-fronts) a towel for a cape and my aussie head band. At least i was not alone!!! Being the festive week here in Uruguay (easter celebrations) the lads and I thought lets spice it up in spirit of carnival and treat the local residents and visitors to the antics of the typical aussie bloke, to be honest we needed to curb our boredom as there has been no swell for waves you can only run the beach so many times in a day!!! So we created the carnival challenge games and this time we thought instead of all this nakeness that seems to be coming fruitfully from our part of the world we would construct more "keep ya clothes on" challenges from our card games but lacking imaginitive cognition we were stripping down in no time.
The first night in preceedings resulted in Jim and Mark having to catch two waves naked infront of a crowded beach. We strolled down there mid morning (not the best of times to do such activities) and got down there only to be confronted by hundreds of faces! At that moment i think they may have felt a bit small but to the boys credit they followed through and actually found the whole experience quite liberating especially wnhen Linda Senoritas were clapping their performance as we walked back to our villa. Now this story does have a rather funny twist, we have waterproof camera so corey was in toe to catch all the action in the water while duggo and I caught it from the shore and as the photos will depict there were some funny moments none more than when a prorusing gentlemen, stomach descended, tight shorts and rather funny looking stopped dead in his tracks when he saw these majestical clotheless mammals frolicking in the water! He proceeded to get his binoculars out and watch the boys for a good half an hour even getting a better view from atop of a sand dune.
That same day Duggo, Corey and Myself had the challenge of skipping hand in hand with massive comb overs and our shorts pulled up like steve earlke down the mainstreet of PDD. This i thought wouldnt be that bad seeing that i got to keep my clothes on but when you have to hold hands with ya mate with stupid looking hair and seeing the faces of shocked onlookers who have never seen three aussie guys skip in strange attire it was a little more daunting than i expected, not to mention that the locals were yelling out Circo Geeks which literally means CIRCUS GEEKS!!! We pulled the mission of with flying colours but im starting to worry that people back home are getting worried about our sexuality, I DO NOT LOVE BOY!
So we move into our next phase of carnival games and to date this has been the hardest of them all (for me anyway).
We are in the fourth day of our Carnival Challengnes and you guess it im on the losing side again, I AM SUCH A LOSER THIS WEEK IT SUCKS!!! So im about to go jump of some rocks naked (standard) and then swim 50 metres to another rock naked just to climb up and jump off again.
