photos...for some reason, they worked through Flickr today. Tomorrow...who knows?

Here we are about to take off on the ATVs with Bea..as she's giving those last minute instructions.  They actually feel really safe and balanced, unlike motorcycles.  and we went on some heavy-duty hills and through mud and streams of mud and water that day.  Our shoes took at least 24 hours to dry, and it helped having the sun make an appearance yesterday so we could put them outside to dry out.



This is the meal we were served by the family.  The pork wasn't really to our liking as it was much fat, which we're not used to.  Bea loved it.  you can see the homemade tortillas the oldest daughter made for us, to which we added housemade cheese.

Below is Connie, comtemplating the day or just admiring the view from the pool.  

Yesterday we had lots of action here--monkeys were flying around the trees making lots of noise, a couple of toucans made an appearance, and butterflies were mating on the grass, which fascinated Matthew.  We went down the hill to the bank, grocery store, and to lunch in a local place.  And I can't believe I didn't take any food pictures!  I must be slipping.  We're heading out today for a hike, so will hope this works againn later.  I couldn't  get anything to work last night and was totally frustrated.
