... quite interesting. One of the factoids he shared was that the minimum wage in Costa Rica is $315 U.S. per month. I think he meant the average wage. He also talked about the typical morning meal of rice and beans called Gallo Pinto.

The higher we went the darker, cloudier, and cooler it became. As we traveled along Eddie collected our fee for the day's activities, $75 each.

We arrived at the bus ...

Costa Rica - Part 2

... the right. After only a few minutes, the road began to disappear and gradually was replaced with the bumpiest, rockiest and most pot holed road I had ever been asked to drive down! The road went on for about 45 minutes. We contemplated turning around and heading back to civilisation, but it seemed that we had driven so far up the road that places to turn around were no longer available and so we pushed on.Well, I have never had so much fun driving anywhere! ...

The day the Clown came to work..

... about his performance was watching him try and explain to us what his next trick was in weird combination of broken English and bizarre hand actions,, because he didn't realise we speak Spanish. Eventually, after a painful 3 hours he left, along with Rafa the hairless Costa Rican. Turns out the clown was there because it was Rafas last day at the centre. I think we'll both feel a lot more comfortable at work ...

... then no they couldn’t, then finally no they definitely couldn’t because their car was out of gas. How’s that for government efficiency: MINAE could uphold the law and stop the Corsicana plantation from cutting trees illegally, and make money off of the hefty fine they would enforce, but they couldn’t bother to fill up their car with gas. We then called the policía and got similar responses---no this wasn’t their jurisdiction, then ...

    The lodge really is squeezed into the jungle with rooms here and there amongst the trees. On our stay (mid December) we were swimming in the pool with Howler monkeys in the tree's just above us. The food is plentiful - nothing too fancy at the buffet but all fresh and tasty. The guides really know their stuff and are all friendly.
    Our room was fine - don't expect hotel style luxury but it was clean and spacious. The windows are covered in mesh to keep out mosquitoes and are slatted which lets in all the sounds of the jungle.
    Great place to stay - will hopefully be returning at some point.
