The last week in Eco Truly has been very calm but nice. There were some really weird atmosphere for one day, and some people left.. but then some other funny devotes returned and everything went back to normal. I’ve spent a lot of more time with the devotes this last week then before, and learned a lot about their culture, their love problems within the community etc. I really enjoy to be there and to talk to everybody.
But, everything has to come to and end, and to be honest, I felt that after 15 days I was done with that. I could of course have stayed for a week more if I wanted that, but I didn’t feel like I was going to miss anything by not doing it, since almost everyone I knew had already left or were going to leave on tuesday too.
Also, I was going to meet up with Fausto from Mexico, we took surf lessons together in Puerto Escondido, and now he was going to Lima for a couple of days (he works as a flight captain). Lima is only a couple of hours away from Eco Truly, so I brought Didac with me too, he has been having some problems with his stomach and been going through some emotional stuff and he needed some environmental change. We arrived here on Tuesday, went to Lion Backpackers hostal again, then Fausto came here and we walked down to the beach to Johnnys surf :) So funny, people still remembered me there! They all knew I was ”Johnnys chica” haha.
One surf guy had seen me walking in Miraflores and tried to tell Johnny that he had seen me, but he didn’t know my name, so Johnny didn’t understand who he meant until we got there. Still amazing since I had only been in Miraflores for about one hour before going down to the beach! Haha. The surf was great, so much fun, I love it. Fausto and Didac was up over the heels aswell. It was Didacs first time and I haven’t seen him this happy anytime during the 2 weeks in the park, haha.
After surfing we went to the hostal to change and then we got out to grab some dinner. Fausto wanted to try Ceviche, wich is a typical Peruvian dish. We got to a quite fancy restaurant, since me and Didac was looking to eat for around 10 soles, and this costed around 30 soles, but totally worth it. I had an amaaaazing plate, it was delicious, and we got treated so well. :) Then we went to have some drinks close to the Kennedy park, before having a somewhat early night.
Next day, surf again! Haha. Of course! We all took a lesson in the morning, and it was a lovely sunny day! After lunch Barca played, so Didac went to the hostal to see the football game, while me and Fausto got down to the beach to surf again, but this time we only rented boards and wetsuits, so we didn’t take a surf lessons, we were just going to try to surf by ourselves…. and it went really well!!!!! I’m so glad, I didn’t think I would be able to even get up in one wave, but I got like 5 really good ones! So happy. But also soooo tired, because you paddle a lot more when you don’t have a teacher who tells you which wave will work and not, haha. We stayed until the sun got down.. so beautiful!
At night we were all really dead and went out to eat dinner, almost as expensive as yesterday but much worse food, not worth it… we ate in calle Las Pizzas, very touristic.. We said Good Bye to Fausto who were flying back to Mexico early in the morning. So fun to see him again!!
And today, me and Didac went down to the beach again, of course. Last surf! I did it myself again, so nice :) Also it only costs 20 soles instead of 60, so I saved a bit :) I tried a smaller board too, much more difficult, I fell so many times due to different balance, haha, but it was an experience.;) I’m sad that this really is my last day of surfing in Lima, I don’t know when it will be next time…. buhu… love the feeling there!
In the evening we went shopping at the handcrafts market, and I bought a lovely colourful warm poncho. I am now leaving for colder temperatures, no beach for a while now… it’s good to be prepared :) Taking the bus at 3.40 am…. so now I’m just hanging around here at the hostal. I have to leave at 21.30 though, if I don’t pay for another night… Which I wont… haha.
