    ... following, engaging to the extent even the boys kept asking if they could read. It was like an alternative universe I tell you.

    So what else-? The food here in the canteen is quite nice! Proof it can be done on a large scale, be healthy and actually taste of something! The kids have their own microwaves out in the playground so that they can heat their own lunches too. Break duty- well that's a walk in the park, almost literally when the sun ...

    ... creek - the aptly named trek through the jungle was a highlight of my time spent there. 5. Sunday funday in San Juan del Sur - the all day drinking affair going from hostel to hostel was an extremely funny day, dancing away to epic tunes whilst watching the sunset over the ocean! 6.

    ... food, so we bought some to throw. From the top of the bridge we saw lots of them directly below. You definitely wouldn't want to go swimming in that river!! I counted up to 25. There was so many because they are used to getting fed at this point on the river. The next stop was to the beach, we went to a private beach owned by a hotel but there was a local and free access that we went to. Once we ...

    ... I'm not sure it was really the best description! A highlight of the trip was ziplining through and over the forest which was fantastic fun and involved rapelling, ziplining superman style (zooming along head first) and best of all, doing the Tarzan swing off a platform. Our final activity in Monteverde was a coffee, sugarcane and chocolate tour. We were shown around the coffee plantations and learnt more about how the coffee beans grow and then are dried out, ...
