We walked to the chosen hostel. I have already booked it in my name, but they couldn't find the reservation when Craig asked for it. But no problems. There was plenty of space and he chose a room. We arrived and after taking a quick shower and unpacked a couple of stuff we were in our way to the beach, yay!!! Craig was telling me he was surfing the last days, but right now it was flat.
Craig came back and the 3 of us were chatting, hahaha. The beach wasn't crowded and most of the people there, have been hanging around for the past few days and my local friend was telling me about the beach town customs, hahaha.
We were just relaxing there and Craig met a friend he has been hanging out with in Mancora. Ramon, this guy, was also hopping there would be good waves, but nothing. So after grilling for some time. Craig was helping me with the timer, hahaha. 30min front, 30min back.
Next step in our busy agenda would be going back to the beach to watch the sunset. We'd meet there. I went back to my room, took a shower and was about checking my email, but I decided not to be online at least for 24hrs, what a record! While we were waiting to get later - sunset time - I was reading and just enjoying the peaceful environment. At 6pm we went back to the beach. Ramon was already there. This was their sunset spot, hahaha. Sunset was very nice. We have really nice sunsets in Lima but not at this time of the year.
We stayed there until it got dark and they started to remove the chairs and tables. Ok, we got the message, time to move, hahaha. Let's go and look for the "happy guy" pizzeria. We tried to find it, but no luck... well, we might meet him tomorrow and we'd ask him about where is the pizzeria located. Poor guy, he might have been waiting for us. Ok, no plans for dinner now, but Craig was the local, so I'd accept any suggestion. We'd have Mexican, hahaha. I remember when I was here I saw that restaurant but never tried it, although it looked very nice. Well, time to fix it! As we were celebrating my arrival, we got some Pisco Sours to toast. Then it was time for the food. We weren't sure what to order and the owner approached. He was a big and laid back dude, who gave us some suggestions and pointed some pictures on the wall.
Then we went back to the main road and met Ramon in a bar. He was with 2 girls. So we joined them for a couple of drinks and were hanging out with them. Ramon doesn't speak Spanish and the girls spoke broken English, so it was good the "Translator" showed up, hahaha. The girls left, but said they'd come back... we moved to another spot and stayed there for a while. The guys were talking about the surf perspectives for the next few days. They were hopping things get better soon. Ramon had to start going back to Lima but would like to surf in Mancora one more time. It was getting late and I haven't slept properly last night, so I was feeling a bit sleepy.
Yay!!! Finally a bed!!! This time I remember to bring repellent, hehehe. Mosquitoes wouldn't eat me now, hahaha. Was so tired that fall asleep immediately, but with the strange feeling I was forgetting something...
