We said good-bye to Ipomea at 8 am. Our driver was 30 minutes late and flew through the mountain roads at breakneck speed to get us to the airport. He didn't really acknowledge that he was late, but made sure that we get there. 🙂 We made it in time and flight was nice and... Continue Reading →

Met the morning at Serce. On the walk to the bathrooms saw an eel hunting from it's burrow. Amazing sight as I've never seen one aside from aquariums and tv.
