... sleeps. The morning chorus here is not just birds, it includes howler monkeys. After breakfast I went for a walk along the tracks in the jungle around the hostel. At 10 the guy who runs the hostel dropped me in town and I wandered towards an area where I knew there were caimans, Along the way I got distracted by the Scarlet Macaws.

... my injury and had a history of sprained ankles herself, so she gave me some advice on the medicine available in Costa Rica and drove us to the pharmacy. Most things are available over the counter, so we picked something up - I don't want to know why it wasn't available in the UK, but within a day I was walking well and the pain had faded.
