Nicaragua Day 8

Last night we slept pretty well. There was a party going on until about 2am but our bodies need for sleep eventually overcame the other distractions. It was a little hot at first but the temparature slowly cooled and we drifted off into our dreams. We went up to the roof of the hostel and watched the waves break for a while. They are bigger today (3 or 4 ft overhead) and very fast and dumpy. There are a few locals out surfing but we still havent found anybody that will rent a board thats bigger than 5ft. Everyone always says that when you go to central america to surf, you always have the spot to yourself. I never fully understood how this was possible until I saw it for myself. There are miles of pristine coastline and hundreds of surf breaks with not a single person taking advantage of it. I will definitelly bring my boards back next time. We ate breakfast (rice, beans, and eggs) which was very the same thing that we have been eating for the last week, but I am really enjoying the simplicity, and originality of their food. Keeping to our previous routines, we went down to the beach for some more body surfing and beach fun. After digging a big hole and putting dylan in it we took some pictures and headed back for dinner.

Dylan, Erika and Anna ordered a fried fish (the fish was whole, eyes and all), but since Im not to keen on fish I just stuck with my rice and beans. They all enjoyed their aquatic meal and we went back and slept a while longer. We got up just in time for the sunset, erika and I walked down the beach and I took some pictures. After the sun was completely gone, erika and anna got rushed by a couple local girls who made them sit down in the sand and started putting bracelets on them and telling them how beautiful they looked. They resisted buying anything for a few minutes but after about 10min they finally gave in and baught something from them.

Just before the sun went down
Waves crashing on the rocks
Erika and I enjoying our last sunset
More rocks and more water
Sitting on the rocks watching the colors
Waves rushing back out to sea
The moon finally came out
The waves beckoning me to come with them to the sea.

We went back to the Coco bar and hung out with Carlos and Thomas for while longer then went and got some ice cream before bed. It was a great snack just before our last real night in Nicaragua. No body is very happy about leaving but there is a sense of responsibility to finishing school that is making it easier. We all know that once we get through school we can come back and spend more time traveling but for now, we have responsibilities to attend to.
