    Another day, another lodge

    January 29, 2019 in Costa Rica ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    The day started with a scenic drive around lake Arenal. It was only 80k to our next lodge but it took nearly 4 hours as the black top ran out soon after the end of the lake. The drive was beautiful however and we arrived in Monteverde at 1300m by mid afternoon.
    The new lodge is lovely. Large balconies overlook lush gardens with a variety of birds to keep the guide book pages turning over!
    The evening saw us on a night tour in the forest. Not for wimps as snakes figured greatly as well as many sleeping birds and insects on small tracks deep in the foliage. Interesting stuff!
    Another hearty meal followed, a glass of wine and then bed. We do seem to be in a groove!
