A Near Perfect Day

So I have been meaning to talk about this now for about two weeks! Two weeks ago we celebrated President's Day and got a day off from school. We had been planning a trip to Mexico for a few weeks, and IT HAPPENED!! We drove down Friday morning and got into Mexico late Friday night after going for a taco run! Then we started out what was to be a near perfect day!! All day Saturday we surfed. It is a lot harder than it looks. Swimming for an large period of time all the while being barraged by waves. The very first wave I attempted I caught, I didn't get to my feet, but rode it on my knees. It was a decent sized wave. The rest of the time though I basically got beat up...or would unintentionally catch a wave. The weather was exceptional! Beautiful! Cloudless! Sunny! Every good adjective for weather! After surfing we went and ate at a delicious restaurant. They gave us free guacamole and this roasted salmon thing, it so good. Then we sat in a sauna room and sweat off all our hard work. Then just when I thought the day couldn't get any better...it didn't. We were watching "Cool Hand Luke" and I started to feel queezy. So after watching him eat 50 boiled eggs, I knew I wasn't going be able to hold it much long...I didn't. The next day was the Sabbath and we just relaxed, went on a walk and drove through the country side, it was gorgeous. Then crossed the border, unsuccessfully tried to surf Monday and then drove back and got into town late at night! It was an incredible trip. I special thanks goes out to Mike and his family for making it possible. Enjoy these pictures, and others on my other blog.

Huzzah for Holidays!!

This weekend I am headed to MEXICO!!!! When I say Mexico, I mean Baja California-the last state to be established in Mexico. My roommate has a house there and we are going to be doing surfing and eating at nice seafood restaurants. I have it on good credit that I will be seeing dolphins whilst there. If I don't I will be severely disappointed. Rumor has it that there is going to be some pretty good sized waves while there-in case you don't know me, I have never surfed. What's more, I can hardly swim! So, if I don't "hang ten" then I won't be too disappointed. However, if I don't get some killer photos, I will be! That is why I really want to go! Not to mention the whole roommate solidarity thing.
Other recent developments, I am still single.
More recent developments, I am still poor and trying to figure out how to pay for my trip to Egypt. Anyone want to contribute? Other than that, life is going well! I am studying super hard, have a great time with that.
