          ... We sat crossed legged on the carpet in the front room in front of the television showing Central American soaps. The meal consisting of small dishes of rice, beef, chicken, okra, egg plant and tapioca leaves was placed in the middle, and we ate a very tasty meal, washed down with 'rose petal' flavoured cordial.

          ... Mike got some proper switch off time and a wonderful experience (especially after the sadness he felt at the orangutan sanctuary) and Rafey and I got to do our thang and it reminded me how much I love my job of looking after him!
