It's that time of year again - crazy Carnaval (spelt the spanish way) - where if you go out side you are likely to be pelted with water balloons or drenched with a bucket of water. Here is Puerto Cayo - that's not such a bad thing because it is the hottest time of the year and believe me - it's hot! The streets are packed with people and cruising cars, so this sleepy little town has come to life again. We couldn't believe it when we checked out the beach yesterday - a shanty town has grown up overnight! Also of course they have to have fireworks at midnight so last night sounded like we were in a warzone (most of their fireworks are about noise - not pretty colours). So - one night down - 3 to go!
On a bright note - guess what I did the other day? I went preaching! Shocked you all didn't I? Yep for the first time in 7 weeks, I actually went out with the group. Of course it was a little easier because I was in the Bidencope's car and was able to rest up after each couple of doors - but it felt sooo good! It was nice to know, I haven't forgotten all my spanish - phew!
