and some interesting characters. One man in particular was a very strange local who only ever yelled 'SUPER MARIO' to anyone he walked passed with a giant grin across his face. Possibly to many puffs on the magic dragon?
The town is know as the place to party in Guatemala and it is here, maybe stupidly, we decide to do some Spanish lessons! With three days of Spanish under our belts I learnt (again) that Spanish is really hard to learn when hungover (Sian.. I didn't learn from the last time) and that our Spanish is still really shit!
Simon: Una cerveza por favor?
Bartender: Dude just speak in English I have no
idea what you asking for
San Pedro is not the best place to practice for a better accent.
Australia Day.. What can I say? Although we weren't surrounded by our usual crowd of friends, a slippery slide and the heat from the hot sun, we were surrounded by a good crew of Australia and international travellers, a swimming pool, (far to cold to swim) plenty of booze and Triple J streaming live.. Any excuse to party at the Laguna! It turned out to be a pretty great night that went into the wee hours of the morning. To it top off we found a cafe that sold VEGEMITE!!!! I was really excited when we saw this and we decided to head there in the morning. I have a feeling that all the other Aussies had the same idea (no one else will eat the stuff!?) because when we got to the cafe to indulge in the salty goodness they had sold out!
HAPPY AUSTRALIA DAY!!
