The last couple days have seemed to lag with many of the waves getting really crowded so we have taken to walking up hills to look down at the view of this amazing place. At the top it is incredible. To look down on an outrageously dry city that is so awesome on so many different levels. In the town people are friendly and helpful as well as hard working. Pulling carts, setting up little stalls and restaurant owners all to make money to survive. This city is INSANE!
