Sat 17th - Tues 20th Feb.

Found accomodation in the north coastal town of Atacames. The place is pretty much dead all year round, except for New Years, Easter and Carnaval. There were thousands of people here this weekend for Carnaval - a constant party on the beach for the four days of the festival. There´s this tradition that people go around soaking each other with water. It´s guys against girls, but the birds generally come out worse off. Pretty soon I was buying water balloons, filling ´em up in the bathroom sink and chucking them from my second storey hotel window at unsuspecting chicas in the busy street below. Soon the other lads joined in too. Absolutely brilliant childish fun!!
