To all...this is short and sweet...
Its been a journey to get where we are now...and we apologize for not writing in a while...but we have been drunk pretty much every night since the last blog...
we are back in Lima, Peru...as much as we said we were glad to leave Peru, we are so happy to be back...when you are here, the recogintion of the fact that you are in a different place is very evident...Argentina was great, but the comforts of home were everywhere and available...this place is different...its more real...and, and i stress and,...we have zero money and peru is so much cheaper...
so, how we got here...funny ...with no money, our only option was bus from BA argentina...turns out our bus was this little piece of crap. We last minute decided there was no way in hell (laura you've taken a 20 hr and lnow how bad it is, and that's on a nice bus) so we tried to get off last minute and pay for a flight but they wouldn't let us. So we're stuck, i think that night shane and i both cried ourselves to sleep!! All i can say is
thank you valium and sleeping pills!! Although when it's about 8 in the morning and they start booming full blast peruvian musice and your seats are right beside the shitter, we're the only white people on the bus, our feet our the size of pregnant women (no offence zita) but hey it's all part of the ride!! We made it after 72 hrs, 3 sleep 4 days DIRECT. no stops, trust me it's not all beautiful and easy. But wanting to kill eachother and wondering why oh why, it's always a good laugh in the end!
Now back in Lima, stretching out for a couple of days, letiing our feet de swell, drinking cheap cheap beer and celeberating Canada Day!!
Flying off to a place called Mancora on tuesday, for a full 3 weeks of relaxation, sun, surf and pure nothingness before coming back to reality!! It's 2 hrs south of Ecuador so right by the ecuador, so the water is warm the surf is great (too bad shane busted his hand, typical, no sympathy...Shane here for a sec...i will surf, oh yes, I WILL SURF...broken hand ba dammed) and then he will wake up and see
what an idiot he really is!! I'm sure i'll do enough surfing and swimming for the both of us!!!, Anywhoo, here's some leftover pics from shanes b/day, brasil , uruguay and some more i probably don't remember!!!!
Love T $ S
