We had a great weekend in Canoa, on the coast - beautiful sunsets, quiet fishing village, cocktails on the beach...pretty near perfect! There were some amazing surfers and inspired by their efforts we decided to hire som boards for the afternoon and I think its safe to say we got completely munched!!! I swallowed two gut-fulls of salt water and ended up black and blue. Those there pacific waves take no prisoners!!!
Weve had another great week at La Hesperia. Each week seems to get better and better. This week saw us working with the medicinial plants, which was fascintating, learning about all their different properties, making bread, taking the milk down to be sold in the village at the bottom of the hill, planting more trees in the forest, and on the friday we went for a brilliant hike following a river upstream to a waterfall. The forest is so dense around the river, it was more of a tropical obstical course than a hike, over rocks, under trees, through the river, and ended up at a waterfall, which we climbed part way up, getting soaked in the process.

You were cut out for this, Kate! Milking, bread making, burrowing through the jungle - back to your roots!
