week two

Post by michelle/tyler » Fri Feb 01, 2008 8:30 pm

Start of week 2 JAN21
Woke up feeling not so homesick we talked that we were going to catch the bus to mismaloya as we were walking to the bus stop we bumped
into joyce again lol so we had a nice little chat and headed up to the bus stop.Nice little ride to get there got off the bus and headed down to the beach it’s a nice beach just not very big saw the house that has the pool on the cliff. Walked up to where night of the iguana was shot came back and sat at Teo’s and Arturo’s bought a couple bracelets and earings for the girls.Decided to take a walk through the village and ended up at the zoo it is still really under constuction and we felt bad for some of the animals but it was an experience.We headed back to catch the bus to go back to the hotel we had to meet bella at 6 at burros. Cleaned up and headed to burros waited there till about 7:30 and figured well mabey she was running late so we went to andales thinking she will just come there. It was very hot sitting inside the bar so we opted to sit at a table outside the bar.Unfortunatley bella never showed and tyler was a really good sport about staying and letting me get a little tipsy and singing all the songs he actually really enjoyed it.A couple joined our table and it turned out I know his sister (small world again) We stayed till about 1 that was our latest night yet woohoo.The donkey was there but no one rode it a few girls got up on the bar and danced I did not attempt this even though they tried to get me up there.We headed back to the hotel and called it a night.
JAn22
Woke up with no hangover (excellent)went to our friends condo and spent the day and evening there just a quiet relaxing day.Tried some cream tequila on ice,man is that good stuff.As of today we had only 2 days of cloud which was not bad at all.
Jan23
Heading to bucerias today with our friends when we got to there condo they had a flood one of the pipes in the bathroom had busted so there bedroom and bathroom were under water they were not happy.Some one came to clean up and we left for bucerias. We walked through the town found sandriana’s my dad knows the owner,tried to find brendas shop for crocs but couldn’t. The fiesta was still going on,we walked down to the beach and Tyler and I went for a walk what a beautifull beach here its so long and easy to walk on.Our meals this day was just going to the street stands and it was all really good.As we were leaving to catch the bus there was apolice escort so we went to check out what was happening there were dancers all dressed up then some sort of float with a man and women on it followed by about 200ppl walking all holding candles.I am not sure what it was about but it was beautifull.
Got back to the malecon abot 10 and strolled back to the hotel.
Jan.24
Today we decided to take a water taxi to yelapa 22 dollars each return.When we arrived we walked up to the waterfall and this very nice older lady came up to me and gave me the hug of my life the gentleman with us (chico) explained to me this is grandma to everyone who comes here I felt so special.We started through the village and saw a man making wood carvings and if you bought one you got a free shot of racilla so I dared tyler to do a shot but he wouldn’t lol.We then came across what I was told is a day center for the kids and the things they make here are then sold and the money made goes to buying more supplies for the kids.I want to find out if I can just take a bunch of supplies to them next year so if anyone knows pls let me know.As we were heading to the beach chico had a flower and told us if you took a bite of this flower it would be like being on acid or lsd so tyler jumped ahead pretending to take a bite and poor chico leaped back and told him he was crazy lol.We walked on the beach it was actually really pebbly not smooth at all but it is a very quiet relaxing time there.We got back at about 4 and went to burros for awhile and turned in for the night.
Jan24
Phoned everyone today then went shopping bought a few things for tony and jan as a thank you and a few things for our family.Went to tour of italy for lunch it was excellent.Sat on the beach at our hotel for the rest of the day.Early evening we headed to the malecon ended up at cheeky monkeys we ordered garden dip with tacos it was so good .Then I tried a Scooby doo drink I think I died and went to heaven that is a good drink if you ever go there you gotta have one as soon as I got home I went and bout all the ingrediants.WE then went to the arches and there was a clown/magician performing and it was all in Spanish but you can get the jist of it,but this man who was standing next to me asked if I spoke Spanish I said no so he proceeded to explain everything in English for me(what an incredible gesture).After that we headed back and called it a night.
JAN26
Sat on the beach and did more shopping from the vendors then went to cyc’s for lunch tyler ordered the seafood soup and the waiter said best in town you don’t like you don’t pay well tyler loved it I have a picture of it I will post later. Went to the flea market again as we were heading up the stairs we saw a man taking photo’s in the trees we looked up and sure enough this huge iguana. The man started explaining everything to us and took us down the bridge to see the rest of them and the pappa senior one it was so amazing we spent almost an hour with this man who took the time to explain things to us.We headed back to the hotel because I didn’t want to miss seeing ellen at jr’s board meeting at our hotel we sat out on the beach till about 7:30 and I didn’t recognize anyone so I decided to check jr’s board to find out what time exactly it started and it was actually at café roma that night so I never got to say goodbye to ellen or meet anyone else.Got ready for supper went to burros for a drink then headed to pizzeria for supper. The alfredo was the best I have ever had in my entire life. Met up with joyce again and had a good visit.Headed back to hotel for the night.
Jan27
Last full day so we sat on the beach all day had breakfast, lunch, a couple buckets of beer 27 dollars it was excellent.About 4 we headed up to get ready to go meet tony and jan for supper.Got to cheeky monkeys had a few drinks got some pics with troy and all of us.Decided to go to brazils for supper great place for tyler he was in heaven with all the meat if you get a chance try this place out but don’t eat all day it was another good meal.We then went back to our hotel and gave them there gifts had a few more drinks and called it a night.
Jan28
Home day we are both kinda sad went for our last walk down the malecon then stopped at cyc for breaky and said goodbye to some of the servers I kinda got teary we actually really got to know some of the vendors and servers this trip and it was sad to say goodbye.Headed to the airport and were off arrived in Minneapolis around 7 got to our hotel got a good sleep and headed out at 6 in the morning for our journey back to Canada we arrived in Manitoba to -52 weather that was a real treat. Got to my moms and surprised the kids I didn’t think my boy would ever let me go the best feeling in the whole world.

Here ends our trip I hope you all enjoy reading it just as much as we did doing it.

Your friends michelle and tyler
Until next year

Michelle, Brenda doesn't work for the Crocs store anymore but in any case,the one she helped open up is in Sayulita rather than Bucerias.

Great trip report Michelle! Thanks for sharing. We leave a week from tomorrow and are getting so excited!!! Hopefully, some day Tom and I can meet you and Tyler. Worse case scenario is we can always meet in Minneapolis as we are about 3 1/2 hours south of there. Get on I-35 and head north!! Looking forward to seeing your pictures!! Have a great weekend everyone!!
