First off, ive added some photos in! In log number 6 theres a few from Canada, which should have been under the niagra falls entry but i cant be bother to change it now. Check them out!


Well im down in Acapulco now.  Traveling on buses and undergrounds with a hangover isnt good but i made it here in the end.  The wrestling turned out to be ok but not that amazing, we were right at the back as well which didnt help.  I think the main problem is that wrestling is basically fake, and although i admired some of the acrobatics (cool backflips etc) after the first couple of matches youve pretty much seen all the moves and recognise the pattern, which is mainly the ones who get massivley hammered at the beginning always come back at the end.  After we came back the bar man was making everyone drink tequilla...  again, which is why i was feeling so rough for the trip.  I did get my aura cleaned by a little native looking guy in the mexican square though, which involved me standing still with my arms out and him whipping me with leaves and letting incense smoke drift all over me.  I also had to kiss the incense cup a few times in between and at the end he told me to pick a little stone out of a bag, he said take pink.  Pink for power.  Pink...!  So now i carry a pink stone around with me and my Aura is feeling happy. Not gay...   happy.

Ahh the trip!  

A great little trip really. Loads of mountains with huge amouts of varied tree life (luke- many trees!!!  LOTS!), i also saw loads of either small eagles, or big hawk type things, swooping and diving in the general way birds of prey do.
 Acapulco is ok.  No surf gets into this bay though so im off to Purto Escondido tommorow which has a world class beach break apparently.  Not meaning to scare any of my family but its BIG and HEAVY and boards get snapped, and you need to be really experienced to ride it. So if you dont hear from me youll know why ;)
  I just got back from a little boat ride around the bay here.  I originally went for it because it had a picture of someone diving off a big rock and thats what i wanted to go and do. It turns out that we didnt go anywhere of the sort, or if we did they didnt inform me about it, although we did go near some rocks but they didnt look like diving rocks.  The boat did have a glass bottom though and half way through a little chap swam underneath and fed fish with a lychi fruit for our enjoyment.  I wanted to spear them all but couldnt really just jump in and do that what with all the kids watching.

Gonna upload a few photos with this update as well so enjoy.

Oh i think im going to grow a beard as well as i realised the other day ive never had one.

Pink For Power!
Mexican girls going at it, free tequila and midget wrestling!? No wander you're aura needed a thorough cleaning. You must have been dirtier than a frenchman!

There was probably a good reason for the aura polisher telling you to take the pink one... because no one else ever takes them!

Could be dodgy with all those Mexican rough-necks about. If any of them recognise you as the happy guy carrying pink for power they could decide to de-purify your aura again by shoving the pink rock into a bodily cavity to see if you still glow!

I didn't think it would be long before the lure of surf reeled you in. This Purto Escondido place sounds like it would be too tame for me. I snap boards for breakfast! Don't forget to post up some shots of the waves and take it with you to get some good inner barrell shots :)

PS, Go with the beard, once it reaches the furry stages you home dry and no true man can drink tequilla in Mexico without at least a 4 week stubble.
