Yep, the boat ride was certainly scenic and worth the effort. Like Rio Dulce, the attraction isn´t the place but the ride linking them, and as such there´s not a great deal to do - but it is certainly an interesting place because it is so different to the rest of the country, what with it being Garifuna territory.
- It rained for 2 days, so we ended up playing excessive amounts of poker. ´Frat party´ comes to mind, but that´s what happens when you mix rain, travellers and a bar.
- The hostel basically had a swamp in the middle of it, inhabited by thousands of one armed crabs. Apparently they ate the mozzie eggs, which was fine by me!
As it´s coastal, the plan is to take a boat to Belize next...and at this point we said bye to Mary (off home for Xmas) and David (off to his host family in Xela for the cock fight). I suspect i´ll see both again as they´ll be in Central and South for a while.
