what was the kitty looking for?
As usual we were woken up by the rooster, but this time the dogs weren't howling, yay! The owners arrived and they were happy now, hahaha. It was good waking up early without hangover, super!!! It's not the most comfortable thing, sunbathing with a headache, ouch! Anyway, we had breakfast, played with the cats and did some Spanish and were ready to go to the beach, hahaha.

I always heard about the "Point Hostel" and wanted to check where it was located, since Craig told me it was far away. And well, he didn't lie. It was far away. We walked that way and despite the beach was mostly empty we decided to stay far away. We were the only ones there, hahaha. My own beach, yay! We walked for quite a while and found a nice spot. I was reading "The Mempins" to Craig. The book was easy, but it was for children and with a lot of made up words, not so easy to translate, hahaha.

Nevermind, I did my best. And having Spanish lessons at the beach... sounds really good to me, hahaha.

Anyway, I asked Craig if we should continue with the lessons, but he said: "5 minutes", actually they were Australian minutes which lasted for ever, hahaha. While he was just relaxing I went for a swim and when I came back he was doing his homework. So, I went for a short walk and took some pics. By the time I was back he had already written some words that wanted me to translate, lol. It didn't take me long and I started to read my book which was so good that I almost finished it and by time to time I started to laugh and Craig just exclaimed: "Crazy!" hahaha.

Ok, it was almost one and we started to walk to the restaurants area. According to our busy agenda it was Cebiche time, yay! We'd try another restaurant this time, hehehe.
tasty snacks ;)
By the end of the holidays we should be able to say which one was the best one, hahaha. The whole day I was trying to contact my friend Elena. She and Paul arrived to Piura last night and were supposed to arrive to Mancora soon. We were talking about meeting here for so long, that I could hardly wait, hehe. We had a tasty and fresh cebiche and Craig learned that so important word: "cebolla" (onion) hahaha. That word could save his life, hahaha.

Before going back to the hotel - pool was part of the agenda - I wanted to go to the bus company and buy my ticket back home. Well, nobody could say I didn't try.
I tried, but they weren't there for me, hahaha
When we arrived the shop was closed... I was about buying a ticket for Monday, but maybe this was a sign. According to Craig it was, hahaha. I shouldn't make any decision until meeting Elena, hahaha. Ok, staying a bit longer in the paradise... no complains at all, hahaha.

We went back to the hotel and this time we skipped the pool. We'd take care of my other goal for the trip, my tattoo!!! love the technology! we found some cool designs online and I just recorded them in my camera, hahaha. Craig even found a cool tattoo for himself, hahaha. He wouldnt' get it now, but like that concept. After so many hours I logged on, big mistake... no, I didn't want to leave, hahaha. Suddenly Elena called me. They already arrived! Were having lunch but we'd meet later. Paul had to work but Elena would join us.

After a quick shower I was ready to leave and as usual go to the beach for the sunset.

We met Ramon and found a nice spot. We were there and I thought I recognized a girl walking around. There was Elena. I stood up as fast as possible and just gave her a big hug! We started to laugh and talked loud, hahaha. I guess Craig and Ramon were thinking, what was going on with the crazy Peruvians, hahaha. Elena joined us at the table and we waited for the sunset. Paul, her boyfriend, was working, so he'd meet us later, but where? Elena was still full from lunch but the 3 of us were starting to think about having dinner, hahaha.

It'd be Ramon last night in Mancora and he wanted to go to the Shopping complex and have dinner there. We told Elena we'd be around and we could meet there later.
jenga match
Once we were there we met Kat, a common friend of Ramon & Craig. The 4 of us had dinner. I ate a tasty and fresh salad while Ramon and Craig got pasta and Kat was having some tuna. We shared a delicious meal and were ready to move to a bar and grab a drink. While we were looking for a bar, Ramon would go and pack his stuff.

We found a nice bar. Not many were open since it was Sunday. This place had nice happy hours, but the bear was expensive. Well, I got a really good "Sex on the beach". We started to play "jenga" hahaha, it was so much fun. We even invented an advanced jenga, just for masters hahaha. It was really fun, but Ramon had to leave and Kat too.

Well, Craig and me didn't stay alone for long, since Elena called me letting me know that she and Paul just left the hostel and were looking for us.
Paul was concentrated...
They joined us and the jenga tournament started again, hehehe. Wow! Paul really liked the beer, hahaha. So we kept on toasting and playing, hahaha. It was so fun. But it was time to move. Paul and Elena were a bit hungry and needed to find a place where they sell food. So we went to the place next door, hahaha. We stayed there until almost 1am and then Paul and Elena walked with us to the hotel. They wanted to check it and maybe moving there next morning. Well, they liked the place and I'd ask the girl for availability next morning, yay! They would become our neighbors, great!

ok, time to go to bed... repellent duty: done!
