I woke up to sunshine and birds chirping and I knew it was going to be a great day! After a poor attempt at cooking an omelette made by yours truly (which turned out to be more like scrambled eggs with stuff) we set out to explore around town. Our cabana was located right up the hill from a nice bridge where you could see the rock formation in the distance that the Cabana was named after. I took a picture with it -- it's a profile of an Indian head on the vertical face, and a profile of a woman laying down on the top (horizontal). We saw some other people at the far end of the bridge who seemed to be in for a good night -- already looks like they may have started celebrating the night. After attempting to convince Felipe to try to climb the bridge for a Profile Picture (and deciding it was a bad idea) we walked back up from the bridge and into town. I showed him our bustling main road (haha!), the only pedestrian street we have (Calle Horn), and the plaza. He stopped at a bank while I took his nice camera that he borrowed from his brother for the trip and took random pics around the plaza. I followed a group of middle school boys who I thought were about to push each other into the center fountain... And then I realized I probably look like a pedaphile and I should stop taking pictures of little boys. (They never even fell in anyways. Lame.)
We decided to stop by the hostel to ask Thomas about car rentals and so we bought some ice cream at the store so we could have it with some more of the brownies we left there. This made Mateo pretty much best friends with Felipe -- which he better watch out, cause that kid is MY BFF... Can't be swoopin' in with sweets like that, it's not playin fair at all! Thomas let us know where we could rent a car and then we went back to the hostel to cook some dinner with a oven pan we borrowed from Sandra. He showed me how to make a cool layered dish with potatoes, cheese onions, Creme, meat, seasons, etc. While it was cooking we moved the futon couch out onto the porch to enjoy the nice weather. After a delicious dinner on the porch we got ready to go out and meet one of Felipe's girl friends, Cote, who has been living in Coyhaquie for the last two years. We went to Piel Roja, which is a bar I have been to a couple times. It was karaoke night again and Felipe was thrilled -- he loves to sing and knows pretty much every song that ever comes on the radio. Having him sing here was actually cost efficient too because with every song he sang the DJ gave him a 2 for 1 drink ticket!
We eventually wandered upstairs to the dance area and danced the night away. It was really fun and after we tired ourselves out we left the bar to go grab some food. It was quite late at this point but we found a little sandwich shop down the street and got a couple of churrascos (which were rediciously huge and we should have just split one - oops) and then took a cheap cab back to the hostel. This was definitely my best night at Piel Roja!
