After 3 planes, 3 taxis, 1 hotel room without a toliet that flushed, no hot water, and a tv with no remote and most of the buttons to make it function pushed into the set, and about a dozen ´´louts´´ i made it. Lout is an Indian word for those guys that want to do everything for you from taxi driver to changing money.



One of those louts actually said gimme your passport and i¨m help u out... F·"!&er! the nerve of him.



So, El Yaque, the city is no big deal, it´s from what I can tell about a block long. I have to go into Palomar to go Salsa dancing and see the more cultural artsy fartsy stuff. but I imagine is has nothing to do with the town but the water and wind. As for entertainment American style.... nada. btw, speaking spanish is quite handy when coming here.



No wind today so no riding, though i do plan on putting up the 05 fuel 11m slingshot. Just becasue i have never flown this kite and because i i want to check it out.



btw, the people that work at the bar at Velawind have no concept of how to make a drink! each one was so watered that after 3 i hardly noticed a buzz. i think either i´ll have to buy my own bottle and spice things up, do shots (yuck) or just stick to the beer.



I´m staying at www.jumpnjive.com. the room and location is new and it´s clean. for $40 a night ya´can´t beat it!





anyway, i´m here and safe.



peace out

Jorge

on the last night there i had a blast! just name the vice and it was certainly there. it was one of the best i had had while there even though i was majorly C#$% blocked!

that same day of course i went riding and once again by the time i got out of the water even those that were in my weight range were on 7's and 9's. i on the 11 again.

flying outta maragarita was very nice. the plane circled el yaque, the beach and the hotels. it didn't look like anyone was out yet. it was a nice way to say goodbye.

all in all the trip was great. I'll give it a 9.12.

all the people i met, not just the locals but the germans, dutch, swiss, french, australians, russians, canadians were fun to hang out with. lotsa interesting convo. and laughs.

maybe some of you have already experienced a trip such as this, but this was my first where i went somewhere and just stayed for a number of weeks. relationships develope. interests are peaked. getting a global perspective on us in the states, beliefs, values, and visa versa was good.

though i have traveled to other countries before this was just differant. here in one spot, 3 bars perched next to each other for people to talk each night, that have a common interest created a temporary community.

i only have one regret and that is that i did bring more than a single gig of memory for my camera. i had planned on 7 but just ran out of time before i left. so i had to do some serious editing with that which i did take and to make sure i had enough space remaining i had to to shoot small files which gave me a lower resolution on the photos. as i write the photos are being uploaded. i will be placing a link on this page as soon as they are all up.

i arrived home last night, 24 hours after expected. my flight from caracas arrived late. after having to go through customs i missed the flight by like 10 minutes. oh well, i had a good time in miami and the airlines put me into the sheraton hotel.

btw, if ya'll haven't gotten a nsi golf bag, i recommend it. it worked great. the kites, 2 of them, and the board along with other gear fit nicely, were well protected, and it paid for itself completely on this 1st trip. my understanding is that the airlines charge 75 each way for board bags unlike golf bags.


well i guess thats about it. it's looking pretty crappy today for any wind. perhaps later this week will be better.

i'm looking forward to hooking up with ya guys later on.

props to Joe and Tim for getting this site up and going.

peace out

remember to cehck back for the link to the photos. promise you won't be disappointed.

George
