    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.

    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 …

    Que Linda!

    ... I learned a lot about traffic in Costa Rica, lots of new words (some not very good ones lol), and once again had to step out of my comfort zone. Oh, and one plus of being a girl in Costa Rica, is that everyone is very friendly and they give a lot more money to girls :) haha so the boys on our team couldn't really compete with us! After the collection work, we headed to Carlos and Tatiana's house-they are the directors of Cru for all ...

    My foody juices have been flowing freely this week in the kitchen, so a trip to the market was pure heaven. I finally learned how to make Picadillo de Aracache. Aracache is a common vegetable here but for some reason ...

Steve is able to identify Fegan as a "Meskito," which is a blend of African slave and indiginous Indian, which shocks and delights Fegan.
