I arrived in San Diego at 7pm and then arrived at my hostel which i will refer to now as 'The Zoo' which you will find out later.
the Hostels name is Ocean Beach Hostel which is a bit of a dump as when you walk past it you would assume it was a doss house. There is a distinct party atmosphere but the place is full of J1 Irish students. i would say that of the 200 people in the hostel, 180 are Irish.

this place is wild. the first night i get in i try and go to bed at 11pm and dont get to sleep til 4am because of all the noise and shouting and yelping.
At 1am the guy below me in the bunk brings a girl back and for the next hour and a half i have to listen to them having sex. its not a nice sound when you are jetlagged and being rocked from side to side. I actually think it is two guys having sex until the morning when i see it was actually a girl. her voice was so deep. they finally stop and i eventually get some sleep.

The next day i wander around the city and get the tourist bus around the city seeing the Gaslamp District, Stadium where the San Diego Padres play and the gorgeous Bilboa Park.

the next two days i cycle around to Mission and pacific beaches and generally relax and stay away from the Irish. i have become a racist.

i also buy 3 wife beaters..............nice!
that night, we drink in the  hostel and then go down to the beach and drink by the big pit fires they have all over California.

Tomorrow i go to Mexico and the start of my real adventure. i have picked up two friends in Sarah and Greg (English), and we will set out for Erendira, a small beach resort way off the beaten track.
