It was so hard to sleep last night!  The howling wind on our tin roof, the rain.  Apparently during my bad dreams I screamed in the night and woke Wende up.  One more night of this should be a blast!

We get up and have breakfast in a tree house.  The restaurant is built around an enormous tree!  We decided to go back for supper to take pictures.

We did some shopping at the super and went about finding a way out of town.  We bought tickets to do the zip line tour through the cloud forest and waited for our transport.  I took special note of the armed guard at the bank who brandished his weapon in a very obvious manner.  Hmmm.

Out and about we get to the cloud forest and get suited up with about 10 pounds of gear.  From what weŽd researched, this place had the most cautions and reliable equipment.  We climbed up and up.  There were 10 zip lines total and we were harnessed to a pulley then we slid down the cable to the next stop. The views were enviable; they were absolutely breathtaking.  I did note that trying too hard to look around while sliding caused some havoc.  The harness would swivel around and IŽd be sliding backwards which is quite difficult to remedy.   It was a moderate hike and the adrenaline was great!

We even managed to get a couple pictures of each other to compliment our new set of travel stories.

Back in town we went to the hotel and situated before heading out to the tree restaurant to eat.  Took some pictures and had a fantastic meal. (Burrito for me quesadilla for Gywn).  Internet came free with our meal which is such a bonus.  We did manage to get tickets out of town but we have to make 4 or 5 transfers to go 100 miles (at most).  Joy! 

Again with these foreign computers.  The guy across from me just asked how to make the @ symbol.  Why hold down  the left alt key and then press 6 and 4 on the number keypad, of course!

After Internet we strolled around the town.  We shopped a bit, went to the bank, and then the supermarket.  We had to catch a 6am bus the next morning so we went back to the hotel for some sleep.
