Laguna Santa Maria del Oro has given us great food and lodging, a water taxi ride across a volcanic crater lake with Sergio, and many fruitless attempts to capture a good picture of the resident (and h-u-g-e!) iguanas. Today was one of those rare "forced" days of relaxation for everyone. Mike ALMOST finished an entire book, Ginny sent out her laundry for a whopping $3 fee, Laura and Ed kayaked the lake, and some of us laughed and cursed the uncomfortable bicycle ride through these cobble-stoned streets (jack hammer on wheels?)
The "gang of twelve" enjoyed another starry night of cerveza Pacifico, regional food like chicarron de pescado, good company, and much laughter.
