During the days we did schoolwork, swam and went to the beach. Our first morning there we heard all sorts of weird noises on the roof. Mom went to investigate and we found out the answer -- large lizards that are similar to iguanas! They were climbing and sliding on the metal roof. The scraping and screeching noises from their claws hurt our ear drums!
On the second night Dad, Mom and I went out for dinner. As we were leaving our driveway Dad said, "Oh bleep! The brakes just went out!" We almost ran over the security guard. It was a good thing it happened there and not the day before driving down from Monteverde!
We still went out for dinner thanks to our friend Victor. A mariachi band serenaded us. I was trying very hard not to laugh!
