Sleep in for the first time in what feels like weeks.  Today we have nowhere to be and no ambulances to get there with.  The future is a little uncertain, save that for the next few hours I'm going to be sleeping.

I rise late, just in time to go tubing on the "frozen river" at the rear of the hostel.  It's a beautiful day and a really enjoyable experience, gliding down the cool waters towards Lake Yojoa.  The river slows to a crawl as we reach the deeper depths, approaching the much warmer waters of the lake.  The mountains and blue, blue skies become the backdrop, our companions many species of birds, and it's clear there are worse ways to spend an afternoon.  It's a hard life.

I surprise myself by jumping 10ft off a bridge.  Murray persuades me to get out of the boat thats picked us up on the lake, and step outside my comfort zone.  It's higher than it looks from the water, but I bite the bullet and leap off.  As much as I can safely say i didn't really enjoy it, I'm pleased I pushed myself and grew a pair of balls.

Murray leaves tomorrow, so we spend the evening playing drinking games, relaxing at the hostel and planning the road ahead.  We have made many new friends since being here and the welcome has been very warm.  I should think we will return when we do this all again next year.
