Baby howler monkey, again.
Today we met up with our friend Neala to go to Playa Cocles. It is a town south of Puerto Viejo where there is a couple who run a wild animal rescue. They are originally biologists that worked at zoos but felt like working with the animals in the wild. So they came here. Anyway, they had a baby howler monkey, a baby opossum, a baby margay, a 2 year-old sloth, a Jesus Christ lizard, various snakes, and we got to see a red-eyed frog. It was the best $7 I ever spent. We spent a couple of hours there. Neala was not feeling well so we made our way back to Puerto Viejo and Macayla and I went to the beach to swim for about and hour before it began to rain. The days our terribly hot and humid and it was a nice break to get in the water to cool off. We went out for dinner after that and has brick-oven pizza. It looked too good not to have it, but we paid for it. Our stomachs were not up to something that heavy. It rained most of the evening, so we laid in hammocks and read. Pretty
