Wonderful modern hotel- perfect in every way except still asking you to put toilet paper in a bin, however!
Most scenic setting by river under mountains, with church in the grounds, lovely gardens and pools, but amazingly early checkout time of 9am. This must be a world record!

... up here it was -7 degrees and we've been praying it doesn't get that cold. Sure doesn't make going to the bathroom appealing at 2am! While Liz was showering I saw two of our porters up on the hill taking photos looking back towards the glacier, they looked like my type of guys, so grabbed my camera and headed up the hill. English is limited although one of them knows some, hand gestures work a treat in these situations and the light for a silhouette shot was perfect so I set ...
... the local Pisac markets where we had Andean Pizza Empanadas (tomato, cheese and onion in a type of puff pastry). These cost 3 Peruvian Sol each (about $1.25) - then we may have bought some more souvenirs!

We were pulled ...

The Douglas Plantation was not the sprawling fields of crops and trees I had envisaged (think Gone With The Wind), but a mismatched collection of weed covered remains of buildings left to rot. No Clark Gable was going to appear on this plantation I'm sad to say. A re-created building had been built just for us tourists, with a sample of the spices ...
Great to set out to sea and feel the breeze blowing over Ellisa once again. A short hop around to Hermitage and anchor safely laid for our first night a float. Down side - Jelly fish spotted in the bay! Wake up to realise we had left without a cruising permit - a fine able offence, so off we go to experience our first dose of Antiguan officials. Never the happiest if people and they gave not ...
... and a swim on the way down. Could not believe that the sea growth has already started on the hull only 6 weeks after anti fouling. I will be down there with a kitchen knife getting the barnacles off in the next couple of days. Things have chilled a bit today after the first couple of days of, not only getting Chilli sorted but having to get things like the Internet sorted out at the house for people who were arriving the next day. Bloody tenants! ...
