The Playa de Peru is a beach east of town and is quite beautiful. Here is a 360 degree video of what it looks like there.
Building sandcastles. See how Jono is squinting? I was squinting too because I wore my sunglasses into the water and a big wave ripped them off my face, nevermore to be seen.
These are the cows that "parked" next to our SUV. Do you see the yellow things in the sand by them? They are coconuts. Not the brown-husk variety, but the yellow-husk type. There was a coconut tree nearby. Most of them had been opened with a machette and, presumably, the coconut milk had been drunk. Or perhaps the cows played bovine bocce with them after the people went home. One never knows.
Sometime I must blog about coconuts. A university buddy of mine is researching using coconuts for a variety of income-producing, value-added, frequenty-hyphenated uses for developing countries, including making biodiesel out of coconut oil, running diesel engines directly on coconut oil, and making particle board out of the shell. But that's another post...These guys are fishermen I think. They were a long way down the beach, but I had my super zoom lens with which to spy on them from a distance.
