        it was a very good decision to stay at the pagalu hostel. clean, save, nice and very helpfull staff. a really clean kitchen with good stuff to use. the only small minus: its allowed to smoke everywhere in the whole common area even inside the kitchen while cooking. so they give no rules, and some of the people smoking did not respect nonsmokers while eating and online surfing in the common area. really pity.

The boat left Isla Colon 45 minutes late, …

        One of the other students down here in Puerto Viejo who has been studying, volunteering and doing the home stay at Veronica's Place had the excellent idea to bring a portable kayak down from the states. Myron had been here for nearly a month with the kayak still in the bag until I came around. It took us about an hour one afternoon to set up the...
