... and the international Puerto Escondido surf competition starts tomorrow at Zicatela and I can not wait too see the surfers battling it out. My eyes are locked and loaded to find an Alana Blanchard type prodigy walking the beach. Wish me luck. It's now Monday night we are waiting for the hostel to completely full tomorrow. We have actually over booked the hostel and so one guest is joining the staff room for a couple nights, it's going to be a noisy couple of days. Adios amigos ...
... and slowly to savour each moment. Shortly after finishing I began walking with an enormous grin on my face down to the beach when disaster struck... My funky trucks (swimmers) split right down the middle, apparently my bathers and ass didn't agree with my new taco weight and decided to let me know.

The beach is nice, but heaving with locals trying to sell you anything from friendship bracelets and bad t-shirts to tacos and bad cooked bananas in a little steam train (check out the pics!!) The water is lush, but the waves and the rips make it a little rough. Great for surfing and body-boarding (of which we did neither).
