      Apart from its location I have no complaints with Papaya. The double rooms are MORE than adequate and the private bathrooms have hot, high-pressure water mains. Beds have mosquito nets, there are desks, shelves and a floor fan for all your needs. At 8 to 10 dollars a night it's a bit exxy but you won't find anything all-inclusive (breakfast, hot water, wifi, etc) for cheaper around town. The one downfall is that the music on Montanita's streets is always on full volume until about 3 in the morning, even on a Monday, so take earplugs or be prepared to pay a little more for somewhere quieter down the beach.

      ... a big night. We got ourselves a $2USD Completo Burger (everything in it) to prepare us and caught up with the Welsh lads and a few others from along the way. One of the main streets is lined with pop up cocktail huts and seats so we parked up at one and got friendly with some local girls who we ended up spending the night with. Was so funny practicing our spanish with them (which is getting better by the way). We went out to a club after the cocktails and before we knew ...

      ... have been pleased with my attempts - unlike the French a few years back. I will do better another time.

      We have meet some very nice fellow travelers. I hope to hear from Bianca again. She was a lot of fun. I feel so bad that she was eaten so badly by the bugs. We gave her our deet spray to use, but the damage was done. Here at Viejamar, we have made friends with a couple from Canada as well as Leslie, a girl who arrived night before ...

      ... among others. The participants’ comments and suggestions showed me that people are aware of these realities and are willing to change their society for the better. They identified that the main obstacle to development is lack of knowledge. They all agreed that knowledge is power and that in order to empower people and develop their livelihoods, knowledge must be shared with them. I feel as though I gained a lot of insight into the problems in ...

      ... had 8am class with Jenny. Afterwards went for first surf lesson, managed to get up twice thanks to some patient coaching from Kiwi Michael, those two times felt great but a lot of falling in between and sea water up the nose, not very glamorous. Afternoon lesson joined by new girl Rudi from the US. Christmas Eve was my last day at Spanish school, learning about the imperative. Sorted tickets to Cuenca. Last class with Verennice chatting about Christmas ...

      ... the time we visit. If a town has sunny weather I tend to love it, if there's rain, I'm less inclined to stay and check out all the sights. The weather in Montanita while we were there was overcast and dismal which was fairly disappointing and I suspect we would have had a better time if the weather was better. I found the town to be dirty... I found myself often dodging dog poo and the occasional street rat. There were smelly, dirty hippies selling their wares all over ...
