    My big adventure was a 3 hour walking tour with a wonderful, local guide named Gina. She has a real passion for this area and enjoys showing tourists the real side of Puerto Escondido. We visited some of the locals, as well has the market, which I always love! Gina got me to try a few local favorites, like the tamales from a woman who has built her business from nothing, over the past 30 years, and ...

    ... but whilst walking through town one day Kevin and I spotted a poster for a free concert that was going to happen in a few days time on the beach.

I also might ask around la punta to see if anyone needs workers, just so i can ...

    ... or 100 eggs each. We watched the whole process, it was unreal. Over 4 days, 30,000 turtles come to land but we weren't so lucky to see a large mass like other days. A lot of it depends on the weather and tides etc. We saw around 20 turtles come and go as the sun went down. We watched on with a couple other local families and their dogs.

    ... while the Jesus was driving out his first mate setup 4 rods off the back of the boat to troll with for catching Marlin, they used real while fish for bait tied into a massive hook. As we headed out, after the first mate got the fishing lines set up, he then got up onto the bow of the boat and started looking for things, pointing in the direction the tour guide should steer the boat. On the way out I saw something that looked like a dead seal or a brown bit of ...
