Igazu & our last days in Flori
26.04.2008 24 °C
Conor has now ditched the lads twice because of a girl... we are not surprised, but we are happy for him :D After the attack Conor arrived home a few hours later and chatted to Derek. He spent 2 minutes listening to Derek about the attack and spent the following 15 minutes talking about a girl he had met.
We stayed in for a quiet night to save on money... 3 hours later we were doing the limbo naked with cards stuck to our foreheads for no reason. Then we had a silent disco, which wasn't very silent at all. Derek then went to get sick on purpose, so he could drink more??!!
Derek has a little "man crush" on Junior, the young guy who owns the hostel. The dutch girls are now using the slang term "well horse" correctly. The next day we got wiped out in Prayia de Mole by the huge rough waves. So we made beautiful women out of the sand instead and people thought we were professionals & took photos!
When we were walking on the beach Derek saw a girl soooo hot that he had to sit down to admire her, much to the amusement of the locals. Jack, Derek & Vicky got free drinks after saving the hostel from the knifeman.
We met these 2 english girls (Leigh & Kate) who thought Van Morrison was american and black! Not only did we have to convince them that he was irish & white but they also found it hard to believe that Rihanna's mother is originally from Longford!
We missed the safety meeting at the hostel, sure it couldn't happen to us twice! Conor & Til went fishing and broke the hostel's fishing rod in hilarious fashion... a boat nearly dragged Conor out to sea. We went to a turtle sanctuary and fell asleep during the video section. Derek got a cold and spent the whole day sleeping. Louke & Conor had a lot of fun at the beach... wooooo!
Killer Fact Time:
Ronaldinho's PR company will not let him get his teeth fixed until the end of his career as his messed up teeth are apart of his image.
The English boys & girls had a great night with us discussing the micropenis condition. Then we saw Hunty playing darts on Brazilian TV and the Swedes all have Bjorn Borg underwear. We organised a togo party in the hostel but left the day it was on because we were sick of the rain.
Pete has an awesome pink vest which he lost to Guy in drunken bidding war. But the pink vest has much bigger plans afoot as Derek has it now... check www.MyPinkVest.com for more details. Jack won 2 world cups on the beach and the day before he scored a hat-rick against a brazilian/argentinian team with some awesome headers and a toe poke. Unfortunately this is Jack's peak and its now all down hill from here. Critics may say Superfriends sold him a season too early, but McCarthy hasn't ruled out a return to the champions.
Theres this fat kid, Giovanni, who is pissing us off everytime we play beach football. He's a bit like Arnold from Dalcassian Downs but way more annoying.
The English lads gave us footballer names...
Derek - David Healy
Til - Rory Delap
Jack - Owen Hargreaves (or Giles Grimandi)
Conor - Chris Kamara
We took over the music in the hostel with our iPods and played 3 lions. The english lads were shocked to see that we knew all the lyrics and argued over which was better, the 96 version or the 98 version. Natalie joined our group as we travelled to Igazu, althought she didn't treat herself to the luxury option unlike the lads... we are flashpackers! Natalie used her spanish skills to help Jack & Derek get into Argentina, it was looking dodgy until he found out we were from Ireland.
We got to the huge hostel in Argentina, its like a Club Med resort... amazing! We also ran into everyone there. We checked in wearing the irish cricket jerseys again and later that day when Jeanne checked in, she was told by the receptionist that the Irish cricket team were staying here. For some reason we have have to check out and back in everyday in this hostel... no wonder Argentina's economy is awful!
Til & Derek had a little run in with a strange guy from the hostel who threatened them with a bottle after annoying everyone in the hostel that night. Jack slept through the whole inncident as Til spoke irish to him and then pretended to be from Oz to wind him up even more. Needless to say we had the last laugh when he was kicked out the next day.
We met Jeanne who knows Simon (Conor's Brother) and she has joined our little group now. The hostel laid on an All You Can Eat BBQ and had a Samba show afterwards. Alex the scottish guy stood up with his shoes off waiting to be asked up by the dancers. The dancers finally asked him to dance and like a kid at christmas he jumped at the opportunity and smiled from ear to ear. Shortly after, his drinking partner had a major dose of projectile vommit... free caprinihas will do that to you.
The next day Conor's tummy rumbled during the liverpool chelsea game and he legged it to the toilet only to find that someone had covered the door handle in pooh! We are going to blame the drunken ozzie douche bag for that. Anna learnt about the book and she is now reading it as I type.
We went Go Karting with the english guys. Conor was Eddie Irvine, Til was Barracello, Derek was Fissicello and Jack bagsied Jos Vershtappen. Jack was forced to start from the pit lane after breaking the rules in qualifying but overall we beat the english guys with Jack winning the race and Conor taking 3rd. Til had a big crash and was forced into the spare car which unfortunately was setup for Conor. Dereks argressive driving style cost him a place in the points. After the race we had to push start the van home.
The next morning we headed to the waterfalls on the Argentinian side (the Brazilian side was a bit of a let down the previous day). We got a massive speed boat to drive us straight at the waterfalls. The driver got to the edge or the waterfall and then gunned it, straight at the waterfall. The power of the waterfall stops you from going under it and it just pushes the boat back after everyone gets soaked.
We had the offical hand over of the Pink Vest at the falls today after seeing aligators, turtles, water snakes, huge spiders, millions of butterflies and sharkadiles (a shark/crocodile). The swedish girls (Lovisa & Hanna) coined a new phrase "Double the Good" which means something is soooo good that is probably bad.
We sang all night at the hostel and even found a french guy to sing the awesome french national athem for us. Needless to say there was a lot of boy band songs and a great version of Aladins "A Whole New World". Claire does an amazing "Weeelllll" from the beginning of "Shout" by Lulu.
Pesos are worth nothing and everthing is way cheaper in Argentina. Pete is a walkin talkin XE.com so we never ahve to think when splashing the cash. We watched "Game Plan" on the bus to Buenos Aires which had yet another awesome performance by The Rock (who likes to be known as Dwayne Johnson these days).
"I think I´ll go over and sniff your ones bed" - one of the lads after noticing the hot one in the hostel had gone.
"I didn't keep any mash because you told me you were putting boobs in this" - Til & Jack having a strange conversation on the bus to Buenos Aires.
"Its great being out in the SUNSHINE!" - Jack's Liam Gallagher impression to Tim from Manchester.
"I've always wondered what Tim's arsehole is like" - Pete commenting on wether he'd sleep with Tim or Rob, if he had to.
"Is that Phil Babb or Babel?" - Til during the Liverpool Chelsea game
"I didn't want to like someone this much" - Conor, awwww
"It's like that film 'Play It Forth', except its nothing like it" - Conor adds his expert opinion to the conversation.
"Tilly is ripped" - Natalie the Ozzie after seeing Til with his top off.
"Scotty is ripped" - Til after seeing Scotty with is top off.
"Souness's greatest move was buying Scott Minto while managing Benfica" - Pete
"So, what was written on your face this time?" - Jack after seeing that Tilly had once again awoken with marker all over his face.
"Would you like me to be inside you" - said to "someone"
Awesome bicycle kick count (competitive action only):
Conor - 1
Derek - 0
Jack - 2
Ian - 4*
- Jack had an free header into an open goal and Ian jumped in front of him to bicycle kick it and hit the post
