    ... One day we took a bus to Estrada, along the coast and then walked back to Carillo, birdwatching en route. It was a lovely walk and we saw plenty of birds by the river. We find now that it is becoming more difficult to find birds that we haven't seen previously but we still enjoy seeing anything that honours us with it's presence! Carillo beach is beautiful, much nicer to our minds than Samara, and unspoilt. However when we told people where we had been the general response was, ...

    ... for the attack!

    A little further down the river, we had the opportunity to swim which I was the only person to take up. It wasn´t really a proper swim because the water was too shallow but it was refreshing and a great experience to dip in the river in the jungle and the guide had PROMISED there would be no camen here!

Kellie and I managed to go horse riding again at the buffalo farm which was just as amazing as the first time even though it kept raining and we rode for so long that we could barely walk when we got off!

    ... looks at a proportion of the fruit in a block and says what size the fruit will be when it is harvested (in around four weeks time!). This helps the farm with their planning as they know roughly what fruit they will have available and when. In the afternoon I went to watch a few presentations.

    ... and it has to have been one of the best things I have ever eaten!!! The place we went for dinner had people doing karaoke which was pretty painful to listen to!! Friday afternoon I joined Alexandra in the lab where she was doing some trials on preventing yeast/mould on the peduncle of the pineapples. They applied the different solutions (in a few different doses) 21 days ago (roughly the time of transit to europe) so they were recording the results. ...
