After a very foggy and gloomy Lima, we were beyond excited for Máncora, a beach town on the north-west coast of Perú. It’s “winter” here which means fewer tourists and 28-30 degrees Celsius. Don’t mind if we do. We arrive at Laguna Surf Camp, a spot a stone’s throw from the beach with our own hammock out front and with a pool. We dump our bags, change into our bathers and immediately run into the ocean. We are instantly reminded of Perth and perhaps for the very first time in 3 months, we kinda miss home. Watching the sunset on the beach makes us even more nostalgic!

Over the next few days, I take a couple of surfing lessons and thanks to the board that is almost twice my size, I actually surf a lot of waves! Daniel gets some solo fishing time in and manages to catch and release 10 catfish and a stingray. There is no photo evidence nor witnesses but he assures me that it happened.
