... water in our hired wellies! William announced it was "epic". How many boys get to become that muddy, at night, with the jungle frogs waking up and providing an amazing sound backdrop with the trees and lianas looking amazing in the light of our torches. Insects and bats flew around us and it was quite a feast for the senses!

Now off the major highways, we were gently (and sometimes not so gently) bouncing on the muddy and gravel covered Costa Rican roads. Our driver meandered through the mine field of potholes and puddles. Suddenly, the bus came to a halt. To our amazement, there was a Two-toed Sloth hanging from a low telephone wire.
