    The hospitality was wonderful here; after we'd been ripped off (sad to admit) by taxi drivers who stole our information from the real don carlos shuttle and claimed to be them (DC offers a shuttle from the airport to hotel for a reasonable price), the manager actually took that amount of money off of our bill since he felt bad for us and for some reason even seemed to give us a discount on the stay. I was not expecting such great customer service! The hotel room was clean and the breakfast (free) was just fine. I'd definitely stay here again.

    White water - white knuckles

    Left the villa at Manuel Antonio mid morning - the temperature had been a steady 35+ degrees for our entire stay which was fine for a while but I was beginning to crave a bit of shade. For example, breakfast was served on the beach each morning at around 8.00am, but the 800m walk from the door down the hill to the sea took about 10 minutes - and …

    On Friday nightI marked my last night in La Paz by visiting the Carnaval which had taken over about 3km of the Malecon while I was away paddling. It was a great evening, tasting the street foods, watching the numerous bands who had set up stages every 200m or so along the sea front and generally having good time.

    The next day I flew back …

    ... which wasn't running as it was being cleaned but I could understand the process anyway. First we went to the laboratory to watch some tests being made on box strength. They form the boxes using glue and then put them in a compression machine which presses down vertically on the boxes and tells you the maximum resistance force the box is able to implement. A few slightly different shapes of boxes are used by Fyffes; one is actually able to withstand more force ...

    ... safe to say we haven't met any Aussies.

    For the first time on our trip it has been cloudy and raining almost every day but it's kind of a nice change.

    After spending two nights at our hostel we jumped on a local bus to a little guesthouse called Casa Kibi Kibi in San Pedro, a suburb just outside of the city Center. It's very quiet and is where we will call home for a week or so until we head to our apartment we have booked for a month from the 13th.

    I can't believe how fast the time in San Jose has flown by! I only have three more nights here in this house! I have really enjoyed the experience and wish that I could stay longer! I really enjoy talking with my family and think that they are pretty much the best thing ever! Mi madre costarricense is very talkative and we watch the news together and she tells me about what is happening in Costa Rica (because I don't understand everything that the news anchors are saying).
