We didnŽt do much the rest of the day. Met a few nice British girls, saw (and heard) a howler monkey family across the street, did some grocery shopping. Apparently thereŽs a big problem with the monkeys here getting electrocuted by power lines that donŽt have the proper grounding/transformers. Only this month something like 17 monkeys have already died this way. The community (there are many Americans living here) is trying to raise money to fix the lines to make them safe, and there are donation boxes in all the shops.
Although there was a big party at our hotel, we were too tired after getting up at 4 AM to do anything but go to bed early, hoping to catch the waves at low tide in the morning.
But alas, it was pouring rain all night and in the morning and IdoŽs hand still hurt, so no surfing for us. We thought about sticking around to see the mass turtle landings at a beach really nearby here, but then found out that because of all the rain there is no way to cross the river to get there, so thatŽs not an option. After finding this out, we decided to cut our losses and get the hell out of dodge.
Now we are waiting for the car rental place to open up, and weŽŽll get on our way to Monteverde as soon as we can. WeŽll be ahead of schedule according to the itinerary so hopefully weŽll be able to have more time in Nicaragua.
Sorry for the lack of pictures, weŽll post some next time.
