Happy Birthday Twins!  Love you, and can't wait to see you again.  Enjoy your new hats, as you walk around with your super lindo surf boards, and pose as surfers.  : )  PS  If you are reading this, email me.  Thanks!

Nelson and Justin "showing me their moves" before we went out for the twin's b-day!

Nelson, Christian, Josito.  Two of Nelson's the Tropi!!  Would you like to know why we are so glad to have the Tropi back open?..

This is why we are so glad to have the Tropi back open.  This man jumped into the back of the truck as we were driving home that night.  He said he was going to Playa Guiones, and needed a ride.  Diego was happy to extend the invitation. When we got there, he wasn't too sure where he was staying.  After telling us, that he was formerly kicked out of the Tropi that night for falling asleep at the bar, he decided it was best if he spent the night with us. So...

There he went.  Right on the hammock.  Of course, the mother in me, laid a mosquito net over him, and sprayed him with bug spray.  I figured he would be gone in the middle of the night.. But, NO.  I woke up at 6:30, and he was out there, snoring.  When I went out at 7:15 to go to work, he was gone!  Never saw him again.  THe end.

This is the little mini mart in Playa Pelada (where the window is)  The green section is the house of a friend of mine, that works at the Juice Bar, here at the hotel!

My friend Lena, and myself, on our way to the Rodeo!  Yup, the Rodeo was back in town!!

Nelson, and his best friend, Henry, at the Rodeo!

My humble abode : )

How to explain this story?  So.. there is this guy who comes into the Healing Centre, really stressed.  He says, "I need a massage, who is the best?  I need the best.  You tell me when to come in, and I need an amazing massage.  I need to be cured...etc.."  I set him up with an appointment with my boss, Tammy.  Apparently, he liked it.  After he 100 dollar tip, and another booking, he was in heaven.  From that point on, he told me that I saved his life.  Because I set up the appointment.  He began to be famous around here, and not always because everyone liked him.  He fled with a boogie board from coconut harry's, he ditched on two surf lessons with Nelson, because he was so "busy".  well, come to find out, that he is actually a huge business man, always making deals, buying and selling, always on the go.  He told me about all these things he was working on, all his contacts, etc.  So, we just let it go.  Well, his final night he was here, he invited us all to a dinner at another hotel down the road.  He insisted we all come (as long as we had good energy).  Who shows up for a free dinner and boose?  All the twenty somethings that were invited.  So we partied away, with Crazy David!  Toward the end of the night, we wanted to go to the Rodeo.  He said that he needed to go to bed, but we could take his shuttle, ran to his room, came back, handed me 300 dollars, and told us to have a good time...

So there I go.  Bottle of wine, gold nail polish, two purses, and 300 dollars.  Let's just say, that I was the favorite that night.  Everyone was chasing me around, "Maggie, I want a beer, Maggie, Can I have a beer?!"  Of course we blew the money right away.  It was easy, because every time I went to the bar, I ordered 10 beers, and 5 shots for the group!!  What a night!  Thanks David! 

...So.. there is my picture update : )

Sad news, Nelson got denied on his first attempt for an American Tourist Visa : (
We were both really bummed.  He wanted to come visit so badly. 
So, for now, he sends his love, virtually!  
Thanks for all the love and support from all of you!

Working a lot!  Trying to get to the beach more, pilates and yoga too!
Sleeping a lot, of course : )
And, enjoying life!

Happy Easter to everyone.  Sad, that I am not there to spend with my family, and the Zanol's from the East Coast, but we will see each other soon!
