Well, summer time has arrived here in Peru. The beach was pretty crowded this weekend. All the kids are off school for the next 3 months and Huanchaco seems to be a preferred spot to soak up the sun.
We really don’t mind the crowds. Our apartment is right on the beach so we never have to drive anywhere. We can hang on the beach as long as we want, but then escape back in the quiet of our house. It’s a good set-up.
Mongo is adapting to Sprinter Life pretty well. We’ve still been letting him out to wander the streets at night. He really enjoys that and we don’t want to take it away from him. But when he shows up in the morning he is always exhausted. I don’t even want to know what he does out there all night!
I know last night he was hanging in the bars with Julio until 4am.
We picked up a bit of that north swell that just pounded California. It was small but fun. And it was good to get back out there. Despite the crowds on the beach, I continue to surf alone almost every session.
Not much else going on in Sprinter Life. We’re just enjoying the down time. I can’t believe it’s already January 9th. We’ve got 3 more months to relax in the apartment before we get back on the road and head south to Bolivia. Part of me is excited to get back on the road, but the other part is thoroughly enjoying a hot shower any time I want one! TREE
