I've written about this weekend in immaculate detail TWICE now. And both times the posts magically deleted themselves. Incredibly frustrating. I know the third time's normally the charm, but I just can't.
So I'm giving you a Cliff notes version instead. [And maybe someday I'll come back and write the real thing. Or you can just fill in the blanks with your imagination.]
Dates: November 2-4
Place: Montezuma- small beach community on the Pacific side
Supposed to run a marathon, plans fall through, decide to go to Montezuma since Emma [other Hogarcito volunteer] and friends were.
Continuing theme of transportation issues. Involving three buses and a ferry this time.
Lindsay and Emma sick. I share room with both. Go to sleep Friday not sure if I'll wake up.
Search for snorkeling tour. Boats left at 9:00am, we asked at 9:30am. Screwed. Damn.
Local man says he can take us snorkeling. Falls through.
Meet Ben from Texas.
Local man says he can take us [now six with Ben and Emma's three friends] snorkeling. Boat won't start.
Visit waterfall by fording river and climbing through jungle. Scenic.
Jump off rocks into water. Tarzan swing.
[Insert witty bracketed comment here.]
Meet Marcos and increase crew number to seven.
Go to top of waterfall. Swim.
Lindsay is a daredevil.
Lindsay Lindsay Lindsay.
Lindsay before jumping: So excited.
Me: I do not condone your actions.
Lindsay after jumping: Ouch.
Spotted- breathtaking view and monkeys.
Ubiquitous night out. Dancing.
Unintentionally played hide and seek. Where did everyone go?
Attempted beach run. Hot & sharp rocks. Ouch.
Transport home. Problems.
Token sarcastic ending comment.
