---Krishnasurfi's thought for the day---->  these divisions between nationalities, religions, classes, all this separation in oneself in which there is so much contradiction – why do we live that way?….it breeds such turmoil, conflict, war; it brings about real insecurity, outwardly as well as inwardly…..there is so much division, as God and the devil, the good and the bad, ‘what should be’ and ‘what is’……..

…….in today's "tales from the hollywood bowl"……I am sitting on the plane…..off to panama……the flight to panama was at midnight, so it was easy, mr tyler slept through it all. I was up, then slept, then up……once we landed we walked to our gate and it was boarding time…….now we are wheels up and heading to peru…….next stop lima…..not sure what the itinerary……as usual, our bags were priority, but 1 of mine got missed…..so we waited an extra 15 minutes…..after thinking that was a trouble, we got to customs and they asked if there was a drone in my drone bag…..oh shit here we go…….have to declare it, another window, forms, and waiting for the cash hit……a $90 deposit fully refundable upon exiting peru(I guess they do not want them sold without tax and duty coming to them) 2 forms and 20+ minutes we got out….our friend darren was there with our guides……all good, we went for the best lunch(we've been hearing about this place and peru in general from darren the foodie)……civechie, raw fish with a yellow pepper sauce, risotto, with shrimp, fish soup, octopuss with purple olive sauce, sun dried tuna with avocado and cracker, and fresh corn juice, it was so tasty…..we changed some money, and off to our destination, punta hermosa……we stopped at harold's house, to look at some boards……his parents house is 3 floors, with a small yoga studio on the top, mr tyler and myself were happy to see that and booked in for tomorrows 8:30am class……from there to the surf shop to get some boards(we rent for $10 a day, harold ends up buying the boards for himself, and we get brand new boards, I choose a 5'8" twin fin 2 1/2" thick X 19.5 wide probably bad choice as I am out of surfing shape, paddling shape etc….I did have to buy some twin fin fins across the road)…..then to our hotel/compound…….once we arrived we got changed(I put un huey's borrowed short arm full-suit,) and off to the beach…….the sun was set when harold and I paddled out……I got 3 waves and almost got smashed on the rocks coming in as I lost my bearings as the power was out in the city and it was pitch black….I made it in with 1 puncture on my finger, I did well……the water temp was ok……..then a shower and more food……my stomach was playing up a bit, so I had a slice of pie, and a coffee……soon after that it was bed time……peru, day one, ok…….
