The day started early with torrential rain on the metal roof of our room. while we were watching the dirt road turn into a river, Anthony told us this was nothing - wait until this happens for 15 days straight! At CASEM, Paul and Josh got to work with Don faustino sanding and scraping chairs with a machete in preparation for painting. These will be used in the dining room. I got to make paper bags from scratch. Brown kraft paper, a bunch ...
... he passed away last year and his daughters took over. They cooked everything by wood fire and had just gotten electricity. It is such an eye-opening experience to see how they lived.
As we were leaving the property, we saw the tiny poison dart frog - not more than a couple of inches big but it had an awesome luminescent skin.
Wonderful active day with wildlife sightings. Pura Vida!
... El Borio) in 1968 when there was a volcano eruption which avoided the town - a little bit of trivia for the day :)
Dropped off our bags at our hotel La Fortuna but our rooms were not ready yet. Cara came to meet us yayyyyyy, we then went to Lava Lounge for some lunch (definitely more expensive in Costa Rica!). Then off to the tour operator, Desafio, for our next adventure!!!
Decided to go for the canyoning half day ...
... would be great to see them doing this in their natural setting in a forest somewhere. They enjoy subtropical forests, lower mountain slopes, and plantations. They love an orchard where they could find fallen fruit.
This butterfly is named after a beautiful green mineral, malachite. It contains copper compounds ...
... 6:40 am by Jose (driver and new friend) and Jason (Pure Trek guide). After a couple hotel stops to pick up other canyoneering adventurers, we made our way to the start of our jungle hike to the first waterfall. I used the travel and wait time to practice my Spanish with Jose (and keep myself chilled). The Tico people are so nice, especially when they realize you are interested in their country and language...and you know me, I love to immerse in the culture. Good times.
