Merry Christmas or should i say Messy Christmas! Wake up not feeling Christmasy at all. Not because of the party the night before, more because of the lack of decorations, family and atmosphere. Spent the first few hours of the day skyping the fam which doesn't help the feeling. For the first time, feeling abit homesick, fed up of BsAs too. 2 weeks would of easily been enough but we're here now and gotta get over it. After the skyping we have our Christmas dinner which consists of a bacon and egg sandwich and a packet of crisps. It's not long before we hit the beer to lose the downs. After smashing dice at pool 3 times we sit down and a kiwi comes up to us to ask to play pool. A bit pooled out I decline and he plays with his missus. Despite our initial lack of interest we get talking to him and they come sit with us after. We get chatting and turns out they're quite safe. His names junior, can't remember his girlfriends name but we discuss the night and decide to all go out together. We go get ready and come back down an he's sitting with another couple. Cam and Christi who are also well safe. A standard cool surfing couple without a care in the world. We all go out as one and go to what turns out to be a not very good club. Everyone seems to slowly dip off leaving just me, cam and christi. We all leave together, sneak a few beers into the hostel and end up getting deep on the balcony drinking beers. They're staying in brazil for 2 months and invite me and dice to stay with them and teach us to surf. The night, or morning, comes to an unfortunate abrupt end when the security guard sees us drinking from outside and comes up to break up the party. Game over and we retire to bed and this security guard does NOT like me!
