So this is my fourth day in Mal Pais-Santa Teresa.  The town is basically a road running parallel to the beach, and everything revolves around surfing.  After a couple days I am starting to get the hang of it, which is to say I can stand up on the board pretty consistently.

I took yesterday off to switch hotels.  The first one I stayed at was cheap, but also way down at the end of the road, and nobody else was there, so it got a tad lonely.  Now I am sharing a room with some guys from vancouver (note, more Canadiens) and a couple guys from Jersey who are around my Dads age.  There is also a resaurant-bar onsite, so life is good.

I won’t let the handful of clouds that showed up this morning get me down, I think I will stay a while longer.
