It's been a week since we left New York and the time is flying by. I'm pretty sure that a month is going to disappear in a hurry so we are making the most of every day we have here. The conditions couldn't be more perfect for kiting as the water is flat and shallow and the wind never stops. Natalie's lessons are progressing well, the last picture is her first long ride across the lagoon.
We are meeting a bunch of entertaining characters and trying all of the restaurants (all four) in our area. The food varies from fried mystery meat covered in cheese to fresh local fish and lobster, needless to say, we preferred the latter. The chef at the fish restaurant doesn't print a menu, but instead brings every diner into the kitchen to select their meal and settle on a price. Later they will add up the drinks and round out the numbers to arrive at what seems like a totally random and ridiculously low number. Saturday night for five lobsters and at least six drinks plus rice and salad was a little less than twenty five dollars, what a deal!
This week we are heading out for a little adventure. We still don't know the exact details, but we are heading up the coast 75kms to the town of Jericoacoara. It is downwind so we are going to ride a bunch of it by kite with some other people here at the place we are staying. We'll have a truck driving down the beach with us so when we need a break we can hop a ride. We'll let you know how it goes!
Conditions are right for a morning session, will post some more pictures.
