Well this is not going to be a long one as not much to report, 10 days since the last blog and all we have done is laze, lie, lounge by the beach/pool/lake reading books and drinking an array of rum based cocktails, well for the first few days anyway.

We left South America for Costa Rica, after the small drama of me having booked flights for San Juan, Porta Rico, not San Jose, Costa Rica, where we intended to meet Jude and Athol, Hannah's parents.  If it was not for Jude’s evil eye we could have ended up slumming it around Porta Rico while Jude and Athol had the all inclusive resort to themselves.  Nice save Jude!!!!!!!!!

So 4 nights all inclusive, that means cocktails and all you can eat buffet, my tipple was a Tom Collins and Hannah went for the less dignified Pina colada.  This resort made a nice change and we had a great time chillin out with J and A. 

We left Costa Rica straight after the resort for the cheaper slightly grimier Nicaragua, spent 4 days chilling on a very secluded beach which received a few day trippers from time to time,  check out the photo to see our sweet little Casa (that’s house, my Spanish has come on in leaps and bounds) on the beach. 

After a couple of days on what lonely planet calls a fairy tale island, Ometepe; couple of volcanos, monkeys, crystal clear springs and mosquitos to rival the west coast we are now in the Colonial city of Granada, famed for 1500 century wealth and daring pirates who used to sail up the rivers and cross the massive lake to raid and plunder.

Heading back to the beach for a while, this time Caribbean side, more sun and sand and rum.

Hope all well,

Adios amigos
