But first, we had to earn our keeps. After few days of volunteering our services with Fundación Planet Drum doing reforestation, trail maintenance and such, we earned a little vacation.
We met up with some of our Volunteer friends´ friends and hopped on a bus up to Cojimies. Actually, our travel was as such: The gabarra (car ferry) across the river to San Vicente, where we met a fellow going our way. Threw our bags and surfboards in the back of his pickup, and hauled it for about an hour and a half to Jamá. Caught a bus to pedernales, about an hour away, and then completely took over a short bus (reference dumb and dumberer) to Cojimies where we stayed at Chiflito´s (little chip´s) folks´ house which happened to be a tropical getaway
When we returned, we volunteered a few more days and then headed over to Canoa, a sweet little surf town about 16km away (enroute to Cojimies). The surf looked like the famous Lake Pacifico (i.e. no surf) for a few days, but as our visit drew to a close, the surf picked up, and had a few days of nice waves.
