Last night we hung out with some of the locals that work at the resort, there are 4 guys that work at the bar/restaurant on the beach: Daniels (22), Roosevelt (37), Jose (28), and Bimba (16). Bimba is his nick name, it means “lips” in Spanish. Roosevelt speaks English pretty well and his girlfriend Tina was here too; she’s from Slovenia and also speaks English pretty well. We were the only people in the place, and had a blast talking to them and despite the language barrier we had amazing conversations about life, love, and happiness.

Bimba, Daniels, Roosevelt, Jose, Tina (and Kev of course)
Jose makes the most beautiful drinks, with the most fresh pineapple, coconut, strawberries, oranges, etc. and he also really loves “bailar” so we salsa danced to their favorite music. We brought the guitar down to the beach so Kevin played some music for them, and I burned them a couple CDs of music that we like. We all agreed on loving Bob Marley and we watched a tribute DVD on the TV they have in the bar. For snacks we ate “salchipapas” which is basically deep fried sausage and potatoes (french fries, I guess) and it was delicious.
When we woke up this morning it was overcast and had poured all night long so some water leaked into our living room and the entire pool had been overflowed. Throughout the entire day they’ve been pumping all of the water out of the pool because it got so dirty, and the pump they’re using is insanely loud. Our condo is right next to the pool so it was a little bothersome, but it’s 9pm now and they finally shut it off. We wanted to watch movies again today but something must have been damaged with either the rain or the amount of electricity the pump requires because all of the TVs in the resort went out. So today we took a nice long walk on the beach, said hi to our friends, listened to music, and bought a pack of playing cards to play the one and only card game we can remember the rules to.Kevin thinks I use way too much bug spray, but he just complained about mosquitoes flying around him.
