Robyn versionīs: Alvarado is not on the gringo trail and therefore lots of amazed looks followed our very sweaty progress through the streets of Alvarado to the port. Paul exits buses at the speed of knots and heads blindly away from anybody who might attempt to speak to him. Later we realize there are no touts *people who try to lead you anything you might possibly want in the hope that they will make a few cents. I personally miss touts who have lead me on many adventures thru out my travels and many great hostels. We walked past the port which is purposely half underwater so the boats can pull up and unload the fish. We didn,t see a lot of fish but huge numbers of very satisfied cats lounged around the closed dock. Boats appeared to be from numerous countries and the busiest place in town with a line out the door was the money exchange. I am embaressed ed ad to say I did not recognize even one of the currencies names, but writing this in June I now know Quetzal *Guat). We headed up the strand like path beside the estuary, a woman pursued us trying to convince us to go another way, but of course I looked at Tiana who after 4 years of Spanish had no idea what she said. We followed Paul who had skirted around her like she had the plague. We are probably now being edited out of the tv novella *mexican soap opera = that was being filmed along the seashore of a cute little Mexican port.
