Left the rainforest yesterday and was told it would take about 2 ½ hours to reach our next port of call Arenal. Who ever wrote the Lonely Planet guide had not been driven by Jose Hamilton. Once we were aboard he stamped his foot on the accelerator and it stayed there for 90 minutes. We passed a blur of every type of fruit plantation as the white van engine screamed for mercy. We arrived here an hour early. Thick white clouds surrounded the hotel. Visibility was about 30 foot and was too tired to go exploring tonight so had some happy hour cocktails and went to bed. I never closed the curtains so when I awoke this morning this was the view. What a strange shaped hill and it looks like either somebody is having a BBQ at the top or some Maleku are sending smoke signals. Nothing for it but got to climb to the top to see whats going on, shouldn’t take too long, so will let you know what I find later.
