          ... not far from here which I would really like to visit. But there aren't many buses that go there... it's well off the main drag--and it's quite questionable if I'll be able to find a place to sleep there. I think I'll pass... and focus on maintaining my pace it getting to Panama.

          ... Well, as much as we could be I guess!

          So we arrived at the farm and met Martina and Alice to get our bucket and large bag. They had these really cool baskets with harnesses that kept them around their wastes, but Maria and I shared a big blue bucket the whole time. That’s okay, we’re a good team!

          I did however try to fall down the hill while hiking. We came to this area pretty far out where we were going just a little further to see the holy statue. He said, here just climb between this fence, ...

          It was a lot easier to use the pool back at our hotel to keep cool in the afternoon heat, so that is what we did. A bit of swimming, a bit of reading, just being lazy but enjoying it.

          We walked back into the main part of Uvita to buy bus tickets for our trip tomorrow. We decided we will go ...

Coffee, bananas, pineapples.. buy local organic and eat in season = defeating evil).
