      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 …

      I most certainly didn't sprain my ankle falling off a kerb as I was getting into a taxi.

      Regardless of how it happened, our brief stopover in Costa Rica began with me spraining my ankle - the other ankle than the one I sprained just before South America. I think it's a subconscious challenge I'm setting to go into every continent with an injury.

      Our driver picked us up at the hotel at noon and we headed for the airport. Thank goodness there wasn't much traffic because everyone here drives fast! Our ...

      ... up at Rosti Pollo's where we understood nothing on the drive-thru menu except the word Quesadilla, so we ordered two. The price? 86,000 colones.

      Now I can honestly say that I have never had 86,000 anything, not even unread email in my gmail which is saying something. The money here is so weird. $1 = 499.5 colones. So you can see how easily it adds up. Still, 86,000 of some sort of money for two tiny quesadillas seemed El Stupido.

      Needless to say, ...
