Our friend Bonnie from home is one of the best connected people either of us know.

En route we visited acountry fruit stall and tasted some local delicacies. The Tarcoles river cruise was truly amazing - crocs everywhere - and big one at that, as big as ours in Aus. The guide hand fed them from the bank with chicken wings - we ...
