Chillin in San Pedro
So I heard the weather is pretty crappy up there, and its really damn cold. I´m sorry to hear that, but I think its an appropriate time to mention that it is about 25 degrees here, and I went swimming today in a lake.
Ok.. so I´m done being a jerk.
Oh ya.. the hippie thing, I shall explain. San Pedro is full of people who have dreads, kinda smell, know how to do this crazy dance called the flame dance, and don´t seem to do anything all day.
Oh, and the me fitting in type thing. I haven´t really showered since Tikal, which was 6 days ago, thus I smell, and I´ve started drinking this local tea called Rosa de Jamaica. No worries though, I don´t have dreads and I can´t do the flame dance, so my minor transformation is totally reversable.
Lecciones de Espanol estan ir a muy bien. I mean, Spanish lessons are going well. We have 2 more mornings of it, and I´ve made it through the first set of lessons. Its a bit easier to comunicate what I want, but still nearly impossible to understand whats being said to me. Hopefully it comes with practice.
So funny story, I was working on cooking a stirfry for our lunch today (it was damned good by the way) and one of the burners I was using stopped working (its a propane stove). In a few more seconds a huge flame burst out of the knob.. you know the thingy that controls the amount of flame you get. So I had to reach into this pillar and fire and turn it off before it completely melted the plastic knob. No worries though, I came out unburnt, so its all good.
Not too much else to say, Ryan and I went kayaking today in the huge waves on the lake. I dumped my kayak twice (again, no worries, I came out unscathed).
Take it easy everyone, please try to stay out of a snowy car accident, for me, ok?
