Sick in Santa

Andrea's parents told me a story before they left about how Dad took ill one trip to Cartagena after indulging in unknowingly tainted foods. I didn't make it that far.

the first couch

I arrived in Salvador to meet up with my first couch surfing experience on Tuesday evening. Walking out of the airport baggage terminal, Victor was already waiting, 30 minutes early and recognized me immediately. Car parked on the curve 5 steps away, I tossed my bags and we went off to grab some grub. Salvador is a seaside city full of seafood dishes so he ordered up some boiled oysters and shrimp pastries to compliment the beer. A good start to my first couch surfing experience if you ask me.

the sides of Isla Carenero

I woke up this morning planning to hit the ocean in scuba gear, under the water with the fishies. But at 8am, yes I woke up this early, the skies were completely overcasted from the rains the night before still so I returned to my top bunk. I don't like the top bunk but it was cooler, fans blowing all night. I actually used my sheet.

slowing down

One of the reasons for this trip, for me personally, is to find "that place". The place where I could envision myself hanging out for a few years. In reality right now, I cannot at all imagine this working out successfully for me, but I figure if I fall in love with the culture, food, people, etc. I would make a go at it. I could just end up back in the States just as well, I could find more than one place, who knows, no se.

beaches, balls, and banditos

Two weekends ago we decided to get out of this cold climate of a city and find the sun. Weekend trips in Xela tend to start around 7am so we took the previous night off to be make the early trek. Fortunately, Flory (or school's director) picked us up in the microbus in front of our hostel so we didn't have to walk the mile to the school in the 50 degree morning.
