Day 10-Montezuma!

We checked out of our house and headed directly to the Farmacia in Jaco. I had developed a sinus infection and knew from Andrew that I could buy antibiotics directly from the pharmacy without a doctor's prescription (yes! wish we could do that in the States). Hopefully the generic Z-pack I bought for $13 U.S. will knock it out.

... were seen and some great birding and some wildlife. This year the road is too steep for Laura to make the climb so no go on that. The waterfall hike is also out because you clamber over rocks.

So this year we walk into town, around town and walk up to the kitchen and commons area at Luna Llena but much more in the uphill climbing is out of the question. Have done ...

... but Stuie was incredible as per usual. Trying to calm me down he again looked through the towel and there it was a scorpion 4-5cms in size hiding in my towel. I screamed so loudly when I saw it because I thought I was going to die for sure, (not knowing that there where scorpions in the world that were not fatal). Stuie calmly and empathetically helped me to breath by showing me pages and pages of google searching confirming that indeed out of the 12 different types of scorpions ...

... These modest, kind, and caring people are content with all of the "flash" that is provided by my Mother Nature.

We finally arrived in our modest hotel in Buenos Aires, greeted with smiles and affection as has been the case since we arrived in this beautiful country. We even had a chance to catch some of the great Packer game(whoo!). From here, we are fortunate enough to take a brief tour of the area we will be building ...

... And we heard them before we could see them. As each truck passed on the road side or on any external noise which unsettled them, a bwwwwoar would come from the trees which would be followed by a chorus of guttural howls. Trying to track the sounds from the trees, your eyes soon fixated on the medium black monkeys with dark faces unlike the whites of the capuchins. They were much slower and relaxed and liked to stare back.

While sitting outside of out small little ...

    The staff at Luz de Mono are super friendly and accomodating. We stayed in a casita and awoke to the monkeys at 5:15am. This is our first visit and we'll definitely return.

    Pool turned my daughter's hair green

    After a long journey to Montezuma via the ferry, my small children were excited to take a swim in the pool. The pool was very warm and cloudy-had I not promised the kids, we would have skipped the swim. After a quick 20-minute swim, my daughter's blonde hair turned completely green. Fortunately, I had special shampoo that minimized the damage, but others should beware (you should also be aware that you will only get two small bars of soap and no shampoo). We were promised towels for the pool, but we never got them. The room was dingy. Both bedside lights were broken (one I unplugged because it scared me). The shower was particularly awful, very small, old, and claustrophobic. We had reserved one night with the anticipation of staying three nights, but we checked out immediately after breakfast (which was surprisingly good). Luz de Mono has an amazing location in terms of access to the beach and town, but recognize that that is all you are paying for . . .
