Yesterday was an example of why I really like living in Mahahual. We had two cruise ships in town yesterday, the Carnival Magic and the Norwegian Getaway.
Having two ships in town on the same day is very rare for us during the summer here in Mahahual. In the past he only had two ships a month during the summer months here.
Well yesterday I rode my bike into town to do my thing on the malecon at the Tropicante. As soon as I got there I was greeted by a bunch of people from Columbia, South Carolina on the beach at the Tropicante. All of them were also South Carolina Gamecock fans, and were there waiting to meet me.
On cruise ship day here I always wear a Gamecock hat and shirt, I have been doing that since I worked at the port. My Gamecock attire attracts a lot of attention and comments from people from South carolina.
As soon as I got to the beach I had a young Gamecock fan start asking me a bunch of questions, about my days at South Carolina, and my life here. The whole group of people live in South Carolina, some in Columbia, and some from Charleston South Carolina.
This was a great group of people, and they really had a great time here on the beach. They ate and drank tequila, and really enjoyed themselves. They also did a lot of shopping, and left with a bunch of souvenirs. In fact they spent almost all of their money I think before they left.
They also asked me a bunch of questions about my life here. They really love Mahahual, and they told me it was their favorite stop on their cruise. I get that a lot from people when they come here, how Mahahual has a great beach and town. They all want to come back and visit for a vacation, so I gave them my card with all my contact information.
There was a young guy wearing Gamecock swimming trunks talking to me, I guess he is 16 or 17 years old. Well while he was talking to me, Elaina, one of the massage girls at the Tropicante, came up to him, and asked him if he wanted a massage. His eyes got real big, and he was speechless for a moment. Elaina is a very attractive Mexican woman, and I don’t think he has had much contact with Mexican women.
He got a massage from Elaina, and I think it was the first massage he has ever had, and I know it made his whole trip. After his massage, all he could talk about was how great his massage was, and how much he enjoyed it. The fact that the woman who gave him his massage is very attractive, I am sure impressed him.
Here are some photos of the group on the beach at the Tropicante enjoying themselves.
This was a great group of people, and I enjoyed talking to them, and hanging out with them for the day. They really enjoyed themselves, and promised to mail me some Gamecock hats and other Gamecock stuff.
They also had their photos taken by Pinky, a woman who works the malecon selling photos on shot glasses and other materials. They loved Pinky, and she put on quite a show.
Here are some more photos.
We also have some hippies in town now, I had to take a couple of photos of them in their thong bathing suits on the malecon.
