Rio Dulce

We headed back up the Rio Dulce and Javier jumped out at the orphanage, I decided to head back to the Hotel for a couple of days to chill out before going back to work, since really after working 7 weeks I was entitled to 2 weeks off. On Tuesday morning I planned to head to Finca el Paraiso, a natural paradise where to river join, one cold and the other hot. The hot one comes along above the cold one and falls in as a steaming hot waterfall, mixing the two into a lukewarm set of pools and baths. As I didn´t want to go alone I decided to invite one of the girls from the Hotel to come along, Aracely. We had a lovely day jumping off rocks and swimming about in my first hot baths in ages. We headed back to the hotel around 4pm and headed over to the fair ground for a dander and had some corn on a stick smothered in chile, mustard and ketchup, scrumptious!

I spent another day or two hanging around with some lads I know in the town, a lot of it spent on Pierre´s (French guy) boat he´s trying to fix up, not a lot of craic, just chilling out really, needed it though. Back to work on Thursday! After the party on Wednesday of course! Next stop, Casa Guatemala... again. To be honest I was kind of missing the kids and all the volunteer craic, more to come soon!

P.S. Thanks for all the birthday greetings, I had a good one, I´ll fill you in on the next blog! Adios!

Make the most of your time there, as hard as you can imagine it is to leave the casa- it's much much worse. Enjoy it as much as you can, and please say hi from me to Darryl!!! Eli
