Máncora to Guayaqiul: Good Riddance Peru…

Máncora to Guayaqiul: Good Riddance Peru… June 8. It is funny how English speaker perceive my name when I tell them it is ‘Castor.’  They often look at me in awe and say, “Wow, that is a very exotic name,” or “You are a Canadian, how did you get a name like that.”  I do not usually tell them that it just means Beaver in Spanish, Portuguese and French.  When I introduce myself to Spanish speakers here in Latin America,...

Máncora: The Tussler

Máncora: The Tussler

Máncora: The Tussler. June 7 I opened my eyes because someone was waking me up.  It was Mary.  It was light outside.  I was on top of a sheet on a cement floor of a dress shop in Máncora, Peru.  Hard liquor and I are not compatible.  We never work out well.  It is possible that I would have been in this exact scenario had I only drunk beer, but the odds are less likely.  We left the shop, and...

June 6. Party Boy Wakes Up.

Máncora: Here Comes the Sun (♬Dee Dee Dee Dee Deeee♬)

Máncora: Here Comes the Sun (♬Dee Dee Dee Dee Deeee♬). June 5 I found a lousy hostel for S/$20 per night that is right on the beach front where loud waves crash right below my room.  Rad.  Ah, Here Comes the Sun.  I have wanted this for a long time…  Maybe I have found a temporary home.  I went for lunch and a walk around town to find out that I know no one in town.  I have made so...

Hunachaco to Máncora: Chasing the Sun

Hunachaco to Máncora: Chasing the Sun

Hunachaco to Máncora: Chasing the Sun. June 4. Staying up late for nothing really screws up a day.  It was 3pm before I left the hostel today and I walked out onto the beach and warm weather that I have been longing for as I have been chasing the sun and wondered what took me so long to get my ass out the door.  I should have known it would be awesome outside because the mosquitoes had already found me....
