Well having overnighted it up th coast of Peru, me, Niamh and Gemma arrived in the liitle beach paradise of Mancora at about 8 am.  Me and Gemma left Niamh on the beach with the bags and went in hunt of somewhere to stay.  After a little while we found the best place, called Laguna camp.  Its literally a group of bamboo bungalows, right on the beach.  With loads of hammocks, and a bbq.  And only 3 pound a night.  So we collected Niamh and our bags and set up home in our little bungalow.  Well actually it was quit big because we got one with 4 beds in.  I went of to investigate the kitchen and bumped into David, from our Machu Picchu trek.  He and his friends and also a guy called Levin who was in the other group doing the trek, were all staying there to.
So we basically have spent the last week and a half realxing on the beach, reading in hammocks, having bbqs, and bonfires on the beach.  Also spent a lot of time at a really cool little bar on the beach, its my dream to own it!
The day after we arrived Ben and Trisha, who we met in Cusco also arrived, so we had a massive bbq all together and had a very funny drunken evening in the camp.
Daytimes usually consist of getting up, going to the beach for a few hours, going somewhere for lunch, then maybe beach or hammock for a few hours.
On the Friday the group of Irish lads we have hung out with since La Paz arrived and obviously led to a few nights of drinking.  Unfortunately for me this then led to me be extremely hungry having had no dinner.  The only thing around to eat was a street vendor selling heart on a stick.  I was hungry, so I ate it.  And severely regretted the next day, and for the next 3 days after that!  Never had food poisoning before, its pretty painful.
On the Wednesday, having psyched myself up for the last week, we all went to the bar on the beach and watched Liverpool in the final.  Obviously not happy after that!  Especially with bloody Levin being a Milan supporter.
Other than have had a brilliant time.  Bit sad too because its where a lot of people are saying goodbye.  Trish is going home, Ben heading to London, the Irish up to Central, and Niamh is going home. We have been travelling with her on and off since Rio, almost constantly for the last month and a half.
So now it is off up to Ecuador.  Bye bye, beach paradise.  Although we are going to another one in Ecuador!
