………had a great visit with Mo, and now back on my own. Walking about Tilaran taking pics as it is lightly raining in Tronadora. (always sunny in Tilaran…..6 km away).
THIS COUNTRY IS AWESOME!!!! Went to Playa Samara a few days ago and walked the beach…..nice place, relatively undeveloped coastal area. HOT! ( near 100F)….
….and suffering a bit of sunburn from hiking all yesterday. Saw some howler monkeys, toucans and other birds . Found some interesting fruits on the property and Mo made salads for supper. Checking out the village more today…..
….found several promising spots on Lake Arenal, close to home. Tried my luch late yesterday evening, no bites. Looking for bait today, then back at it……
….and I am on my way to the Monteverde area for a check out of whats available. Stopped for breakfast in Tilaran, beautiful day out! Met a retired Dutch couple (accountant and she a social worker), assisted them in acquiring internet and coffees, etc, then gave directions to Fortuna. Feel like a local! LOL…..Woke up to the growling of Howler monkeys (bongos) right behind the cabina. Scary until you figure out they are in the trees and just passing through. Tons of birds singing as well. Anyway, still trying to add pics to this site……computer illiterate at times.
Arrived safe and sound, been to the west coast and up throught the central valley to Tilaran….out and about looking for food markets, banks, etc. All going well. 75 degrees and windy but clear.
