At 7:31am, the very next morning, I sat poll position again at the Breakfast Buffet. At 8am I met Irene over at the Cafe/Internet Establishment. This is also where the Van Station had a set up. Irene was not only there when I got there, she had purchased my ticket. And she got me a front seat. Impressive. I paid her back. We had another sit down over another cup of coffee. She was eating a carrot. Irene promised me that she too would take the 9am van, but not until the coming Monday morning. She asked to remain in San Jose Del Pacifico a few more days to embrace the full moon affect. I granted her that notion. I promised her that a personal driver would be at the Station in Pochutla at Noon to pick her up and drive her to Puerto. I gave her my remaining 900 pesos and told her it was a signing bonus. She was all smiles. I was gone.
