The reunion with my partner Peter after 6 months was not really the best sleeping medicine, so I felt unable to do much reasonable office work today. We rather went to shop some food in the nearby shopping center and found a a place to get my silver kayak pendant from my “Good Luck” necklace polished which had turned black over the months with sweat and saltwater around my neck. I rather felt like visiting a hairdresser in the afternoon, to once more get rid of 10 years of age by coloring my regrown gray hair. There I could get some pampering rest…:-)
In the evening the guys from the kayak club invited us for an asado party. Very nice and authentic! About 50 kayaker have been coming to honor my trip with taking hundreds of pictures everywhere, getting signatures on kayaks and cards and presenting me the local kayak club flags and a really beautiful acrylic trophy with some engraving to remember my visit here and the trip. Thanks very much for all your efforts, especially to Ale Rodriguez from AR Kayaking to organize most of it! It was a pleasure to be in the club and to get honored so much!.
