Lol
I knew you would know.
It was the number of the winning Mini Cooper in the 1967 Monte Carlo Rally.
You get the million points. Ten million more and you win a well used set of tires

I am just killing time here in Playa Carmen, Costa Rica.
I went surfing this morning. Perfect conditions
Water temp......85 degrees
Light off shore wind
Surf was about 5 to 6 feet
Nice fast peaks breaking both left and right.
I can see how people come here to visit and end up staying.
It's perfect here
Well almost perfect........
First, it's expensive here
Food is really costly, even at the market
And then there is the dust
the roads are not paved and the dust is really bad. People walk around with masks on here.
Costa Rica, please use some the money you get from over charging people here on paving the roads in town.
Otherwise......it's perfect

Remembering the dust

Had a frosty ride down to Guerrero Negro, thawing out and catching up with your trip.
I envy your weather. Was in CR last Feb and had a good time traveling around. Liked it but was priced about like home.

But the clima is muy bien.....Good waves and warm water

Did you go to GN to see the whales?
I can't think of any other reason to be there

Costa Rica Surfing

I forgot how much fun surfing is. And the waves here are great. I surfed both Mal Pais and Santa Teresa. Both days were 6 feet plus. The faces were 10 feet. I got some very memorable rides. But the one that I will remember most was the wave that took me for a ride. I was paddling back out after riding a wave and a big set came in. The first wave held me under the water for quite a while and took my breath away. And then I came up for air and there was an even bigger wave just about to break on me. I paddled hard to get over the top of the wave but it was more powerful than I thought. The wave lifted me up and pitched me over the falls. I could feel my body free falling down the face of the wave. Then I could feel the water water thrashing my body around under water at the bottom. Then, it was like I was in a washing machine, and the wave was still not done with me. It picked me back up again and threw me down again, this time slamming my body against the bottom of the ocean. It held me there for a bit. I was completely out of breath at that point and needed some air. When you are under water, you don't know which way is up. But since I was on the bottom, I pushed up with my legs and made my way to the surface for some air. Fortunately, the wave set was over and I was able to paddle back out for more.

Montezuma

Montezuma is a hippy town on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. There is no surf here but there is a cool river with some waterfalls and swim holes to play in

Here is the lower falls. It is about 100 feet . Too high to jump from but it has a nice pool to swim in

Here is the middle falls. To get there, you have to climb up the side of the waterfall using roots and anything else you can to pull yourself up

You can jump from this waterfall in to the deep pool below. It is 45 feet and it hurts a bit when you hit the water.
