I'm sorry I have not been blogging more, but honestly I just didn't feel like it. I am also trying to find an apartment for someone. Apartments are very easy to find, but the "right" apartment is a little more elusive. Everyone thinks the apartments they are showing are worth a fortune, it doesn't help when you are a foreigner. They assume that you just have a tree with money growing on it.
While looking at apartments we had to take a break for lunch. It was a little muggy today, with the overcast skies that were threatening rain. So I suggested the restaurant on the Malecon so we could sit by the sea and catch the breeze.
It is also difficult when you are driving around and there are so many beautiful distractions. To take a break we decided to go this little spot by the water where they fish and go swimming. As we walked up there were some hot guys about to change clothes to jump in the water. In the distance was what seemed like a makeshift beach, but it was a part of the nearby military base.
All of sudden I hear, Papa! Of course it was someone I knew who, told me to be careful as there were a lot of tigueres lurking about. Which only peaked my interest. He had his friend show me how they get in and out of the water (video below). Just then 10 guys from the neighborhood (who just finished playing basketball) show up, strip and jump in the water. I couldn't move.
I LOVE this country!
