... into deeper water. We enjoyed the rest of the boat trip spotting animals including crocodiles, caymen, kingfisher, lots of iguanas, snapping turtles, and large fish whilst cruising through the rainforest. It really whetted our appetite for what we might see at La Selva over the next 24 hours. We grabbed a taxi early afternoon to La Selva and checked in. La Selva is an active biological research station, one of the best in the world. 60%25 of all published research papers ...

... road and arrived at our destination at about 12:00pm. A small very local looking place high up in the mountains. The view was incredible - looking very much like the Alps. High mountains covered in clouds, cold air and green fields and trees all around us. There were two young girls who seemed to be running it and after Dad had attempted to enquire about the room (half in English but with a Spanish accent reminiscent of Manuel from Faulty Towers and half ...

Day 4: an old woman makes me cry.

... It went really well, the kids are lovely and surprisingly easy to entertain. Theyre aged between 3 months (I stay away from that one) and 6, and there are usually about 8 of them at the home every day. It's based in Maria Eugenias house, and her husband helps out there too. Maria Eugenia is lovely too, in fact, I haven't met anybody who isn't lovely yet. It makes me wonder what people think ...

... ability to think like a bird and find where they make nests.

I had one of my dreams come true the other day, when I walked around a corner in the forest and heard a fellow researcher calling for help from his bird net, because he had caught two toucans! Elise and I stood at the net, totally amazed and flabbergasted at how to handle this big gorgeous bird that could bite your finger off. Rigoberto, the bird whisperer, comes over and pulls the toucan ...

    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.
