Where I stayed
Hostel Jacaranda Inn
One of the other tables, the place was choca with Gringos celebrating Christmas away from home, had done a Secret Santa and were handing out presents. Me being me leaned over to the next table and said "you have 20 seconds to get us a present and wrap it, we will do the same", after a little laughter the exchange of paper napkins was made. We gave two paracetamol for tomorrows hangover, we received a sachet of love lube. The hilarity of the situation made me instantly click with the guy who was hating every minute of Christmas till we got chatting. He had a rather funny storey about trying to overcome his Christmas blues by getting off with a French girl he didn’t like last night. He got very drunk and weed in her bed. It’s not quite what we discuss around the Christmas table at home but maybe next year.....
Anyway as they left we noticed a couple on another table, whom we recognised from Chile, Lisa and Steven who were on our flight from New Zealand to Chile and ended up in our hostel. We invited them over to the Irish pub, full of festive cheer and we had a bottle of sparkling wine for about £10, followed by another few rounds of bottles of vin rouge. We then headed over to the Irish Rover Party hostel for...
It was a different Christmas Day that’s for sure the first in 32 years I wasn’t with my mum and dad, the first in maybe twelve that I hadn’t seen Erica’s mum and dad. It clearly isn’t great, Christmas on your own, then again you make your own fun, speak to who you want to speak to and we had a great time with Steven and Lisa, plus I don’t think I would have got any love lube had I been at home, although perhaps Aunty Anne might be buying me some for next year. It’s certainly small enough to fit in a Christmas stocking.
