Oh yeah, I forgot to mention in the last diary entry that just before I got into the internet cafe i got a call off 3 English piss heads going by the names of Mark, Colin and Tel, I think it was 10am here so it must have been about 1am in England on a Monday night you legends. It was good to hear from them but I'm wandering how much it cost Mr Bayford because we were chatting for a good 10/15 minutes. Let us know Mark.
Since I last did a diary entry I've done a different job everyday. On Tuesday afternoon the owner of the hostel asked me if I fancied doing a bit of furniture removal on Wednesday morning
The owner of the hostel John took us over to the tomato farm early doors and I reckon we were there by 6.45am with the intention of starting at 7. I didn't have any breakfast before we left and also forgot to take any water with me although I did remember to cake myself in sun tan lotion and take my cork hat, which come in handy. I've never done any work like this before and its probably the most physical I've ever done. We were given trays with about 200 seedlings on each and had to push them down into holes that had been done by the tractor and then cover them over with a bit of soil, it sounds a piece of piss but when your bent over for 7 hours with the sun on your back and the humidity been as high as it is, it really takes it out of you and when the mud starts sticking to your trainers it takes twice as long to do the job
I got up without a problem this morning and was whisked off to a farm about 5 minutes away. I then discovered me and an Aussie lad were going to be planting capsicum pepper seedlings. We started planting at 6.30 and were done by ten it would have been an earlier finish but they had loads of rain during the night and on the fields you had to go bare footed because the mud came up to just under your knee. A lot of the workers were moaning about it but I just got on with it to get it done and the time goes quickly anyway when your planting
We're still undecided on when we're going to move on because the lads van failed its mot yesterday and needs 700 bucks of repairs before it can pass but I think it'll probably be the middle of next week. Although Bowens a boring little town we still have a laugh, as I've said back home before its not the place but the people your with that make it and I'm having a right laugh at the moment with the lads so it don't bother me at all.
