We spent some time watching the daredevil kite surfers riding the waves - it looked incredibly strenuous but David and Chris were dying to have a go!

... time, there was a great distraction for me. People were pouring into the bars along the street. It was noon and the World Cup Final between Argentina and Germany – far more interesting to me than the Chinese Theater – I was a goner.
