... we'd experienced in the past two days made the river rise substantially, and made it much faster. Happily, we had 6 guides go with us, and as the only guests on tour, we had more than one guide per person to help prevent us from smashing against a rock, turning over, or going the wrong way.

Day two at CASEM, which stands for cooperative of artisans from Santa Elena and Monteverde (essentially). I was thrilled to get assigned to work in the kitchen with Dona Ana and Dona Olivia. CASEM has a dining area that provides simple breakfasts and lunches for sale. All basic Tico food. My simple tasks included preparing the salad. Here they wash the lettuce once, use a salad spinner (ha! Never in my kitchen!), then wash again in a bath of water ...
