I AM 35 TODAY, We start the day by having a typical Salvadorian breakfast of rice n beans with scrambled eggs and plantain. Not too shabby. Funnily enough Phil was also eating in there too. With board shorts and bikini's ready we walked along the beach and found some softish sand to lie on. After 20 minutes in the scorching heat we were ready to hit the water. The waves were unbelievably big and the undertow was pretty extreme. We were both taken out a few times and ended up looking like drowned rats. After a few hours of tanning and being thrown around in the waves we hit a local restaurant for some 50 cents puposa's filled with refried beans accompanied by pickled chilli cabbage yummo and of course a birthday beer.
After lunch Mel was super tired so she decided to go for a nap. Meanwhile back in Marks birthday world, I slinked off and purchased a massage from a nice hotel nearby. I had an hour full body massage which was rather nice.
After waking up the walking dead we headed out to the beach front and sat on some comfy chairs on the beach at a bar called Monkey Lala where we both enjoyed a beer and a Pina colada watching in disbelief at the semi pro surfers. We both watched the most amazing sunset I have ever seen. The sun was a huge glowing disc of lava orange sinking below a pebble beach covered in palm trees. The whispy clouds around it danced in colours of oranges, reds and purples until darkness fell and the remainder of the extreme surfers were silhouettes against the shoreline.
As hunger drew in we both bimbled upto a very fancy looking cafe/restaurant called BLu overlooking the beach and sea. As it was my birthday and I had received some money I ordered a 9oz Lobster for $24 which was absolutely delicious accompanied by some red vino.
The next day we enjoyed the previous day so much we attempted a reinactment, sunbathing, thrown around by huge waves, puposa's lunch but unfortunately no massage lol. In the evening we went to a different restaurant and had a fairly Mundane dinner.
