|dance parties...part of the job requirement|
Other than the occasional 'work' day and surfing a few times a day, the days can be whatever you make of them. Yoga and meditating on the beach is always accessible with the energy of sunset my favorite time to practice. Not the mention the heat is intense during the middle of the day which gives everone a good reason to nap and rest. In the afternoons a few times a week I attempt to teach English to a local kid, Willy, which naturally allows me to work on my ever improving Spanish. Some other afternoons I explore the few streets of the town meeting local kids along the way or I will make jewelry with the traveling artisians who have made Canoa their 'home' for now. The life here is happy and easy. My soul has had time to settle in here and it is a nice change of pace to get to stay somewhere for a while with no reason to leave. This gives me time to reflect and grow in a knew way than before. I see that I have purpose here and this gives me more space and energy to give back.
