I must apologise to those of you who have been checking this journal for updates and not finding anything. The World Nomads site is not setup for mobile devices, tablets and phones, and the procedure to create the blogs and upload photos is too cumbersome.... Read more >

Gracias por todo San Agustinillo!

Wednesday, 27 Feb 2013 | Views [991]

I owe it to everyone reading this blog, and to myself of course, to write one last chapter.  I think I've had a great escape from my monotonous, suburban life back home, and I've tried to make the most of everything San Agustinillo offered me.  ... Read more >

San Agustin de las Flores

Monday, 25 Feb 2013 | Views [648] | Comments [1]

Of course, we had breakfast in the small village of El Llano, and to admit to some remorse for last night, I ate the black beans served in front of me, ( if you didn't know, i'm not a big fan of frijoles).  But for whatever reason, this 'country-... Read more >

Cascades Magicas!

And just as the Universe decreed, Bambo wanted to get away from things for a day or two, so we plotted a course to take us away from the coast and into the highlands of the Sierra Madre. So after a nice breakfast at La Mora we packed a bag or two, ... Read more >

Adios Giodi!

Friday, 22 Feb 2013 | Views [444]

Feeling so much better today!  I went for an early beach walk and found Bambo already at the Mexico Lindo.  The crew was having breakfast here to send off Giodi (correct spelling now), who was flying out back to Italy for a month.  So ... Read more >

San Agustito Fiesta

Thursday, 21 Feb 2013 | Views [513]

The day of the fiesta!  Breakfast was a casual affair at La Palmitos before everyone started on the day's tasks.  I went to see if Alving needed any help on site.  There's still a fair bit of work going on there - toilets being installed, ... Read more >

Pochutla to San Agustito

Wednesday, 20 Feb 2013 | Views [409] | Comments [1]

With more shopping to do for Tuesday's fiesta, Bambo wanted an early start to go to Pochutla again.  So after a quick coffee we headed off to the 'big smoke'.  Pochutla is still a small town but compared to San Agustinillo, it's a veritable ... Read more >

Puerto Escondido

Monday, 18 Feb 2013 | Views [737] | Comments [1]

I got the message this morning that the boys were heading to Puerto Escondido, so a quiet breakfast at ML got me ready.  It's a cloudy Sunday morning, and the beach is virtually vacant. The ride into Puerto Escondido rekindled the first impressions ... Read more >

Souvenirs and pizza

Sunday, 17 Feb 2013 | Views [377] | Comments [1]

A nice slow start today after a good sleep.  Breakfast was at La Mora and I checked out a small art craft shop across the road.   I bought a few small things, wrist bracelets, a sarong, a little wooden 'doll of death' for want of a better description.... Read more >

A surly morning ...

Saturday, 16 Feb 2013 | Views [332] | Comments [1]

I've been out of wifi range for a day or so, and as I haven't done a hell of a lot, I didn't worry about posting.  My original accommodation was only for 7 days but we were happy to continue the arrangement until something came up, which happened ... Read more >


Thursday, 14 Feb 2013 | Views [384] | Comments [1]

As I'm getting used to the way things work around here, I knew the Mexico Lindo is closed on Tuesdays.  So breakfast was at another place, Los Palmitos, down the road, which quite frankly lacked everything the ML has going for it.  Nevertheless, ... Read more >

Whether I'd blown over the 7-day blues or settled my ailing stomach, my second week started off on a good note, and I don't mean that damed dawn service through the loudspeaker next door!  I later found out that its the national anthem they like ... Read more >

Souvenirs on the beach

Tuesday, 12 Feb 2013 | Views [677] | Comments [1]

I've skipped a day in my regular blog, not because it was Domingo (Sunday) and even I called for a day of rest, but because there wasn't much to report on.  There's not much more I can say about eating, sleeping, sunning and swimming that any reader ... Read more >

A great day for a jam!

Monday, 11 Feb 2013 | Views [383] | Comments [1]

Today started out, well, pretty good.  I slept past the sunrise, there was no dawn service next door, and even the Mexico Lindo restaurant was near vacant at breakfast time.  My fried eggs and toast stayed in my stomach and the rest of the ... Read more >

Just chillin' ....

Sunday, 10 Feb 2013 | Views [469]

You'd think a couple of rums and a late meal would send you into a deep, satisfying sleep.  Well, it did.  So imagine my rude awakening to a loud speaker close by singing who-knows-what at the crack of dawn!  There's a small community ... Read more >

I still seem to be waking up before the sun but it makes for a great start to the day when you assimilate to the dawn collective, by that I mean the fading stars, the lulling tide, the scurrying of sand crabs and the crowing of distant roosters.  ... Read more >
