    ... the area the two brothers shared a dream that here was where they wanted to settle to work the land and support their families. Quetzals were found and soon birders started arriving! This place is really off the beaten path, I'm so glad we came here. I'm sold on this touring company, Overseas Adventure Travel. We really get to experience the local culture, fauna and flora. This morning, 6 of us went on a hike, not just a walk, a hike on a trail along a cascading stream. ...

    ... one rooster as well. Side note - do you need a rooster to have your chickens lay eggs?! If so, Laurie I am against the raising chickens idea. And then the rain.... It sounded like our shower was running (which it would just turn on for no reason...) it was incredible how loud the rain was. And it didn't cool things down at all.

    ... made sure to bring water to breakfast this morning. The lady running the place is really nice. we chatted lots and she gave us tips on the park and buses and then started telling us how she hasn't been to the doctor in 4 years. she uses baking soda for bug bites or cuts or tooth infections, and also eats flax seeds to reduce her blood pressure and chia seeds to help her stomach. she also rubs fresh orange juice on her skin at night time, and i have to say ...
