Over the last few days we have had fun listening to the sounds of Granada:
local marching band
Our hostel (The Oasis) had beautiful wall murals that we wanted to show everyone:
We had an excellent breakfast buffet three mornings ago at the Chocolate Museo. We were satiated until dinner with the delicious crepes, omelets, and homemade organic coffee!
I think the cooks of the restaurant were amazed at how much we packed away.
Let's move on from our obvious gluttony!
We continued to roll, I mean walk, around the city during our last few days in the city, enjoying sunsets and the local architecture.
Then the big night came...Kevin's birthday!
I had a huge task ahead of me: find a cake, balloons, decorations, a venue for the party, and a wristwatch that would work for more than one week.
After searching the entire city of Granada (and I really did) I was successful in only one of these tasks... Apparently the people of Granada like raisins in their cakes which is a big "No Bueno" for Kevin. Luckily for me, I found a great chocolate cake and with the aid of several street children I was able to remove all of the raisins!
As you can see in the picture, Kevin found out about the raisins.
We had a great time celebrating his birthday with a lovely Australian couple as well as our kick-ass yoga instructor!
I will upload the videos in the next few days.
On the morning of the 27th, we bid Granada farewell and took the express bus from Granada straight to San Jose, Costa Rica. It was the first time we had felt AC in two weeks. What a glorious sensation.
We spent one night at the Molino Rojo (Red Windmill) in San Jose and then took an early bus to San Isidro in southwest Costa Rica. Once there we made the connecting bus to our final destination, Dominical. We will be here for the next week, soaking in the sun and the atmosphere of this quaint town which is known for its great surfing waves.
More to come on our wild and wacky ride!
