Arrived back at the log cabin at 2200m, where we stayed prior to our excersion to the south, lit the fire, enjoyed the cold air and opened the bar. We have invested in a portable bar, aka, a coolbox with several spirits, beers and mixers to make the harsh travel conditions bearable. Emma whipped up a typically delicious offering from shoddy ingrediants, and I praised her on her success at satisfying my curry need. Not like anything i´ve tasted before but hit the spot!
Rose at a spritely hour, for a change and headed up the nearby volcano of Poas
Tried to climb another one the next day but the road was impassable 5km from the end. 2-3 foot boulders in the road and the 4x4 wasn´t man enough to get over then. After breaking into it, causing loads of scratches and getting 4" metal spike in the tyre, the bill is mounting and I was keen to keep it down! We beat a retreat, rather annoyed at being defeated by the road.
