Jan 9,Day 10 Isla Trip

Date: 1/17/2007

Oh my God,slept in today until 9:30 but did wake up at 6'ish to see an awesome sunrise.When I finally did get up it was cloudy & windy out.Down to M& J's for Breaky.Ordered a coffee $15 pesos,my usual OJ & carrot juice $20 pesos & M&J's Cazuela Contoy which was a combination of shrimp,tomato & herbs $56 pesos (Oh why didn't I have this more often,next trip for sure).
This is my last full day on Isla and it is starting to hit home.I left M&J's and headed straight for the ATM as I wanted to pay my bill up with Alex for my stay at the Rocamar Hotel to get that out of the way.
Went back to Adrian's Internet to check my email,send,etc.
Even though it was cloudy and windy I headed to Sergio's once again and sat for a couple of minutes without anyone else at the beach.I felt bad for Ziggy and ordered a Coke light and told him I was going tomorrow.He and many other people had told me "change your ticket" which I didn't or I would be there now not here,WHAT WAS I THINKING?
It got even windier (is that a word) so I told Ziggy I was leaving the beach.Well I walked over to Caribbean Queen and it wasn't quite as windy and I needed to get in that last bit of tanning so I sat down until it started to spit out.Ok now I guess I better get up and go back to the Hotel.So I walk just by Jax and the skies open up again.Well what could I do,I ask you? I duck into Jax,sit down at the bar and order a cerveza with the bar filling up fast.I was sitting at the edge of the bar and started to get wet not to mention my bag on the floor was soaked by now.
There were 3 guys sitting at the bar (Alex,Ray & Coop) who asked me if I would like to come over there where it was dry.Well some of you may know them as they said that they are Fishing Charter guys out of Texas that take out people fishing on their companies 60 foot boat.Well twist my arm, we spent 1-1 1/2 hours hiding out at Jax from the torential rains.The rains subsided so it was time to move.Walking along Hidalgo I stopped to chat with Rob at Sancocho's then back to my Hotel for a hot shower & siesta.
After my siesta I had some shopping to do for little souvenirs & trinkets.

I then had to make the rounds and say Adios or I would rather say "Hasta Luego" to all my new friends. Stopped by Miguel's to have one last of his famous Caesar's.Then on to Angelo's to say goodbye to Aldo.I ended up bartending for Aldo for a bit when he was busy and that was totally cool & fun (what a laid back place).
I had decided that Sancocho's was pretty good for dinner and the special that night was Chili Relleno's which I had never had.I ordered the Chili Relleno's stuffed with beef $60 pesos, it was great and they had 2x1 cerveza's too.
Some friends sat down and joined me for a beer at Sancocho's and said goodbye,see you next year.
I then walked up to the Stump Bar (what is the name of that place anyway?)and found Alex,Ray & Coop having a drink and joined them.We then walked to Fayne's to listen to the band and dance a little.

We danced until they closed and then the guys wanted to go to La Pena so I walked up with them as my Hotel was next door to La Pena and left them to get a good night's sleep.
