Ahhhhhh. We are drinking fresh squeezed passion fruit juice at a coffee plantation called Selva Negra and sipping coffee grown just outside the window. Converted now into a nature preserve, the surrounding cloud forest provides gorgeous hiking trails. As we hike we hear the howler monkeys and hope for a sighting. On the edge of the forest the the trees are filled with many different varieties of orchids. A field of calla lilies line the edge of our cabin. Today we will go to the market and the volcano and tomorrow at 5 a.m. we load the bus and head to the airport for our trip home. We await hugs from each of you.
With great love and gratitude, Carla
