(a quick thanks to all those who have written to me. thanks heaps. missing family and friends a bit. hope all is well. i will do my best to reply as soon as i can.)
Just a quick update. The rest of our week at Huanchaco has been fantastic. nice and chilled. friday night, we went into Trujillo and met up some american friends we had made. we went to the bar called HOPS (squeezing 8 ppl into a taxi the size of a corolla wagon - good fun). the bar was very new and western looking. we joined up with some other guys and there was 15 of us there. it was really good and they served their beer in 3.5L towers. they had this citrus beer that was quite sweet. i thought it was great but some said it was too sweet.
later that night we kicked on to a club called Žla barraŽ and we got there about 1. they had two main areas separated by a bar area with pool tables. one dance floor was darker with lighting and dj and on teh other side was a fantastic 10 piece latin band cranking out salsa all night long. steve was having a ball and was impressing the local ladies with his moves. his dance partner got quite protective of him.
we finally headed home round 4am. we squeesed 5 people into a tiny car with 4 ppl in the back seat that could really on fit 2. (all to save 80c). when we got out half an hour later, i had the best dead leg ever and i fell over. i had no movement or control much to the amuzement of others in the car.
Saturday we got up late and just chilled all day. i had a ride on the local fishing boat - a reed canoe. it was like a waterlogged canoe. while i was riding, the boys on the beach had attracted some attention from local girls talking to us and then wanting photos. so we stood around for about 10mins doing photos. even the mum got invovled and then randomly some other middle aged girls on the beach. quite amuzing.
well, off to lima tonight (sat) to meet our other mate lyle.
