I played the BEST game last night when I wanted to go to bed. It involved a torch and clapping and banging. Basically I had about 1 million mosquitoes in my room, I wish I was exaggerating. So I was attempting to at least cull their numbers, I think I managed to kill about 20. That seems a lot but honestly there were more left, and that was a feat in itself because they were SO fast. I also had to kill a few spiders, felt kind of bad about that but they can blame the mosquitoes for their deaths because I wouldn't have noticed them if it wasn't for the mosquitoes dive bombing me. They still managed to eat me though. Dicks. I'd rather play articulate next time. As revenge they bit the only thing open to the air, my face. Than

I was debating doing the beach today as the weather seemed like it would be nice but then the clouds rolled in so I finally went to the national park. And lost my camera. Back to that in a bit. Honestly if you ever get the chance to go to Cahuita National Park, go. I saw so much wildlife and that wasn't even with a guide; Capuchin monkeys, Howler monkeys, huge Iguanas, 4 sloths, 4 yellow eyelash vipers, Racoons, Pygmy Squirrels and a Jaguar. I'm joking about the jaguar, but the rest I saw, it is a good national park. And it's free, even better!

So yeah I lost my camera with all the photographice evidence of these animals. I think what happened was I put it down to fiddle with stuff and then I dunno, didn't pick it up? Either way I realised it was missing after about 10 minutes and went to search for it. I eventually ended up with 3 park rangers helping me look for it, and if they can't find it then it's gone. Probably picked up by a person, or you know monkeys are an option. I offered a reward for it anyway and hopefully someone will call. Do monkeys have phones? If they stole my camera they probably have someone's iPhone too.

After I came back to the hostel and did absolutely nothing, in all fairness I had walked about 12KM that day so I think I'm allowed to rest!
