Yadi was there
After a quick breakfast we left house. It was 7am. As usually we made a stop for coffee, hahaha. Then we met the guys at the beach. There were the 3 guys ready to surf and me who would just chill out, enjoy the beach, walk along it and write a bit, had a lot to catch up... Since I wouldn't surf I became the key holder, hahaha.

According to the guys the surf was "fair dinkum" which means cool in Aussie English, hehe. I'm improving my vocabulary. While they were surfing, I was enjoying the beautiful day. The sand was white and the vegetation was right next to the beach, nothing to do with Lima which is a desert. Also the sky was deep blue, turquoise water and high buildings with great architecture. And this awesome place would be my future town, how lucky! Without knowing it, I chose the perfect city to study.
was so bright
At least the one which would suit me the best... I think I'd feel very comfortable in here, yay!

After about 3 hours the guys were ready to go. I had time to walk around and wrote quite a bit. I was admiring the gorgeous landscapes and nice architecture of the area. And of course I took several pictures, how couldn't I do it?  It has been a productive day, but before leaving we'd go to the point to check the other surfers and waves. This was another tradition, which also included having a cup of coffee. I passed the coffee, a cup per day was enough. Plus I have switched the coffee for coca leaves tea back in Lima... I guess I would reassume my coffee costumes here :P

We started to drive back home and the traffic was too heavy... what was going on? Craig called one of his friends who was also driving back to Brissy and left a couple of minutes before.
why is the steering wheel in the wrong side???
He was also stuck in traffic and the reason was that there has been an accident, oh no! It was a really nice car which was ruined... hopefully the driver was ok.  We arrived back home. I was making something light for lunch: salad and veggies. And we still had some pork. In the meanwhile Craig was cleaning his wetsuit... the kind of things a surfer has to take care of, pffff.

Afternoon was peaceful and just to relax - including being online of course, hahaha. Later we had dinner and watched a movie, a Spanish one, hehe. Since I woke up early, my plan was to go to bed early too, but it wasn't happening. I got the inspiration for writing and didn't want to let the moment go.
