That security booth, was our fave corner for unparliamentary activities. Protection from the constant strong sea winds. And there was never a cop there. Mancora…

    Your photos are really cool. I never went to Mancora – but I spent a lot of time in Huanchaco, a few hours further down the coast. Do you surf? I learnt there – it was such fun.
    You listen to chuck berry? johnny b goode 🙂
    Keep having an amazing time!!!

      Tried a bit of surfing in Mancora, but my attempts were in total contrast to what i’ve normally seen in slow-motion on TV : ) so gave it a break. Will be heading down towards huanchaco and trujillo for my next attempts though.
      Love chuck berry, you must hear the Peter Tosh version of the same song too!
      You have a marvellous one in Africa, can’t wait to catch up on the continent through you 🙂
      And if you like music, if in the mood for some nice electronica, hit this up soundcloud.com/johnny-badonk
