The meal that would have cost us about $22 in Australia was more than $30 here. Ouch. The first part of the drive was along a highway construction. For some reason they are constructing it all at once so for about 60km we had dust, traffic etc. Once we turned off the Centroamericano Highway it was much ...
... electronic room key no longer opened our door. Of course it didn't.
Once our hotel fixed our keys and allowed us back into our room, the most magnificent electrical storm I've ever seen exploded on the horizon- no place rainstorms like the rainforest. The entire jungle outside our window was illuminated with purple lightning, and the downpour made visibility nearly zero. It was a good time for a nap. Also, our naps became longer than expected because our trusty travel ...
