We arrive to Mancora from Lobitos on the Friday, and it was a welcome relief from a week of rehab, of no drink, internet, telly, anything, So quiet understandably, we hit the town hard that night hard. So hard, that I was a mess all the next day for my actual birthday. Now when I say town, I mean street, a street of about 100 meters with pubs and stuff either side of the panamerican highway. Strange, drinking and dancing on the street with big freighter trucks and traffic buzzing past, and a party that doesn´t end until sunrise+.

The surf was ok in the beginning, but some swell hit as we stayed which was great. Such a novelty to be in the water in shorts. We checked out a few spots close by too, like Los Oreganos, which was cool.

One evening, we took a "chook chook" taxi to Oreganos, which is a motor bike, with 2 wheels at the back, that fits 3 people in the back, what a laugh. Its like your riding the bike yourself. Tied on the surfboards somehow, and took off as fast as the driver could push the engine. On our way back to Mancora, we ran out of petrol, and had to push up the hills and freewheel down the hills in the dark back to a petrol station in Los Oreganos, there´s a big hill on the way into Los Oreganos, so we were roaring and shouting all the way cause we´d made it, freewheeled into the petrol station at the beginning of town, came to a skid stop right beside a big police jeep, which quietened us fairly fast! 
So we stayed for about 10 days in Mancora, after which we had enough, I had a little run in with 4 lads and a bottle on the beach one night alright though, feicers got away with my wallet which I was stupid enough to have on me at the time. Nearly ripped the pants clean off me, roughed around a bit too, but no worse than coming up against the 2 Connery brothers abroad in Clashmore in a training session though! 

Actually, Shirley, I might have to get your mother to put a stitch in those pants for me too if you wouldn't mind!

Plus, some cross dressing by colin, getting worried about that child. Although he is quiet fetching in white...

Also, We found a yougurt desert inspired by Batty Duggan, Kev´s dad, called batty mix, which was a real hit with us....
