    It was a truly sad thing, because Casa Esmeralda is actually very highly-rated on Tripadvisor, and our food was quite well-prepared ... but the garlic ... it was just mind-boggling, the amount that the chef had used on the garlic bread and fish. You could almost see a first-time chef using that much of the stuff, but how could a chef that had the skill to turn out a beatifully-caramelized and perfectly-cooked fish filet, think that much garlic would ...

    ... to take us to the other side of town to Casa de Papel. It is a huge old historical house with a large covered patio full of big, chunky furniture. There is a swimming pool too which I'm sure we will make use of tomorrow. Being low season, or Green Season as they call it here in Costa Rica, it's not that busy so we got a nice big ensuite room with air conditioning and a small TV. We really felt spoiled turning the AC on after the hot bus journey.

    We ...

    ... for awhile and had a delicious fresh italian pasta salad. They would have packed it for us to take to the beach, but I prefer my food without the addition of sand.

    it was time to figure out how to get the board, our backpacks and ourselves to the beach. Robin was 100% convinced I could not ride the bike with the board, but she didn't want to walk. You know me, I don't like to be told I can't do something, so naturally I took it as a challenge to prove her wrong. ...
