At last I have finally got out of Flamingo Beach.... although it was touch on go whether I would make it when the taxi driver got a call an hour into the journey to go via another town to get here (we nearly ended up taking a 4 hour detour!).

And Monteverde turns out to be exactly what I expected and so much more! It's not only cooler here and much more picturesque ... there are actually things to do so tomorrow I am taking a Sky trek and a zip line through the rainforest which should shake up some adrenalin!

I've just had dinner in a Tree house which was really odd... the whole restaurant was built around a really old tree and it was partly outside partly inside the tree!

The hostel I'm staying in is really friendly and everyone in this town speaks english which makes a very refreshing change! Saying that I still keep speaking to people in Spanish as it's becoming second nature now! Not that I'm fluent or anything yet by all means!

The best news about Monteverde is that there don;t appear to be any mossies! My legs and arms are suffering from the recent eatings of every monster mosquito in the country... so it will give them time to recover, although no doubt with zip lines planned to tomorrow activities I will get a bruise or 2 to make up for it!

Anyway.... time is short so I'll have to say adios! Btw is any1 has tried to txt me I have a flat battery and can't find the right adapter for the plugs here so wont be able to pick up messages until I locate and englishman with an appropriate plug for the holes round here (lol!).... but fortunately my ipod has an american plug so I'm not going without music!
