The beach!

So I slept all the way to Florianopolis, it wasn't too bad, but it's way better to do this type of overnight travel in China, where there are actual flat beds to sleep on. I woke up a little groggy, but it wasn't as bad as sleeping in a chair, like you have to on holidays in China.

Renan was supposed to meet me at the bus station, but he was an hour late. So, I just got changed and cleaned up in the bathroom, trying to kill time until he came.

Renan was pretty smelly, he had the smell of clothes that were left to dry in the shade and then grew some gross bacteria on it. He brought me to his house, which is at the top of a HUGE hill. Then he said we had to take a shower and eat lunch before going to the beach. This took an extraordinarily long time as well. We didn't get to the beach until 2 p.m. at least. We also had to stop at his friend's house before we went, but his friend wasn't there. Sometimes couch surfing is not so great... sigh. I really appreciate the hospitality and effort, but sometimes people just don't get it.

When we finally got to the beach, bees were chasing us, but mostly Renan, probably because of the smell, I don't know. After we found a good place to relax, I finally had a little snooze. I woke up in an hour and Renan was escorting me back home. We got back at around 4:30 or 5, and he immediately told me he had to go and "get some medicine" and he would be back in 30 minutes and that I should wait for him. Mhmm, "medicine", right.... I told him that I wanted to buy him dinner and that maybe we could go together... he said he didn't eat dinner until 10 p.m. at least and that when he came back we could go get dinner then. I fell asleep waiting for him.

I was woken up at midnight to eat some stew and rice, not the dinner of seafood at a beachside shack that I was hoping to buy him. I was sad and told him so, he seemed confused.

After that, I went to bed and told myself I'd wake up early to make up for the egregious amount of time I wasted staying with this weirdo.
