The hotel is quite nice. Our room was great, the pool was very nice. Food was great. Our only issue is that our credit card was charged twice for our stay. I tried to contact the hotel a few times but had no response. Luckily i booked through booking.com and they intervened and managed to get a refund very quickly.

The bus company assistant, who led us off to the lawyers earlier, reappeared asking what the delay was. We told him that immigration wanted us to buy flight tickets before they would stamp our passports.
Then it got really bizarre, the bus driver came to ask what was taking so long just when David was filling in the final details to purchase ...
... that he is still active on site. It must be his passion for coffee, which is keeping him young!
Our tour took 3 hours and we learned a lot.
The golden grains of the coffee fruits are protected by 3 different shells. All of them have to be taken off before the roasting process can start.
Imperfect coffee beans are carefully sorted out. A great deal of the sorting process is done by hand. ...
... with them since I did have a few loose beers that I had been packing around and wanted to get rid of. Gina decided to stay in the room to shower and pack. I stayed with the others until they started eating then went back to the room to repack my bag. The hike caused us to need stuff that had stayed in the bottom of our big bags all trip like warm clothes so we needed to try and fit everything back in. With the bag repacked it was time for a shower and bed. We had been up ...
