    We had a great view of the valley from our balcony on the top floor of the hotel. We bird-watched from our balcony and had a great view of the sunset. We saw Emerald Toucanets the first morning. The rooms were big and comfortable. The breakfasts in the dining room were served family style which was different. We took advantage of the bar both days. The mixed drinks and beers were great. There was no pool here but that was okay because it is cooler at the top of the mountain. The staff here were helpful and friendly and when we had a dead battery in our van the morning we were going on our canopy walk and zip-lining. They got us a taxi in just a few minutes. The best thing about this hotel is the location because of the view.

    Before breakfast I spotted Emerald Toucanets in the tree across from our balcony. We had breakfast at 7:00. It was served family style with the fruit coming first, then eggs and toast, then pancakes and syrup. We were ready to go about 7:45 and got in the van but it wouldn't start. It sounded like a dead battery but Freddie had drive to the door of …

    We had 7:00 wonderful breakfast buffet with many choices. I tried something new which was a cassava which is like a potato only sweeter. I had scrambled eggs, papaya, pineapple, plantain, and a small, long skinny pastry. We all liked the cassava. While we ate in the open air restaurant, the birds came in and perched on tables and chairs. Rayner …

    So after a magnificent time spent on the islands of Ometepe and in Nicaragua in general, it was time for us to cross the border over in to Costa Rica. Border crossings are generally a bit more stressful as you have to factor in a few different modes of transport (as most transport companies won't travel over the border itself), change money without getting ripped off, keep track of passports, etc, and this crossing was no exception. We started at 6am with a taxi to the ferry, then ...

    ... cloud forrest national parks, but I've already been in a couple and aren't too bothered. I'm here for the zip lining (happy birthday from Mama). I was expecting for this day to be for transit, ziplining to happen tomorrow and to jog on the day after. However I could pack ziplining in this avo, and bugger off tomorrow instead. I was thinking about just staying here for the extra day and kicking back, but this doesn't feel like that kinda place. The final nail in the ...

    ... involves much effort. All it takes is roasting the beans, coarsely grinding the beans into nibs, separating the nibs from the shells, and then finely grinding the nibs until they start to melt and voila, you have ready-to-eat melted chocolate! Of course there is still more you could do with the chocolate at this point, such as tempering it to obtain a more pleasant appearance and texture.

    Perhaps the most shocking part of today's tour ...
