... It was nice to be back in the Jungle Hostel, and there were a few other people there this time too.

The Red Backed Squirrel Monkeys entertained me as I ate breakfast the next morning as they went about foraging for food in the trees next to the hostel.

... site of a Tranny running around antagonising a bull was unique, but one I don't think I need to see again. We left after tasting some Wagyu beef, from Cows fed with coffee and ice cream!! It didn't wow me! We said adios to the couple, who we will hopefully see in both California and New Zealand, he reminded me of my good mate Beana, but with a great 4 month beard! Where to go next, we had three days left, and a pout a thousand things we could try and ...
