Where I stayed
Loki Mancora

Flag of Peru  ,
Monday, April 6, 2009

From Bocas del Toro we went to Panama city and hung out for 2 nights shopping and relaxing before our flight to Colombia. In Colombia we stayed 2 nights with some familiar faces in Popayan before facing the 36 hour b*s journey through Ecuador to Mancora in the north of Peru. Despite this ordeal and a horrible rip-off border crossing, we were very excited when we arrived in Mancora as we were about to meet up with Pamela, a friend from Galway. We caught up with her and her cousin Aideen on the beach and made some quick dinner plans. Dinner was inevitably followed by some travel story swapping over a few beverages that escalated into a late night sing-song on the beach in celebration of Pamelas birthday. We had a more relaxing day with the girls the next day and they left the following day. We whiled away a few more days lounging by Lokis luxurious pool, sipping the odd drink and trying a surf lesson.  At the weekend there was a wild ladies night and a cannonball competition in the hostel, both of which Mike missed due to a heavy dose of Saturday night tropical fever. Apparently though Sinead did a good job of dressing up like a lady. Overall Mancora was a nice weeklong respite from our mind numbing spirit crushing b*s journey to Santiago.
