The adventures of Fe & Chris

A little holiday…

On Tuesday Chris got back from the west, so I duly walked down the mountain to go and meet him at his new base of Buenos Aires - I finally got to stay in the ‘luxury’ that is the ecolodge for a couple of nights, and so I’m not so keen on heading to my tent this evening. BA was lovely as ever with its great views over the mountains. Chris is lovely as ever as well and has pretty much got rid of his cough (his voice started going again a little, but prob just from wittering too much, hard to imagine, I know!). He seems to have had fun over on the other side, but I’m sure he’ll let you know all about that in due course - he might nip up for the afternoon for some data entry and internet…

Yesterday we went down to “El Tucan” Cascada (waterfall) it was beautiful and we even managed a swim, although it was a bit chilly, it was definitely worth it for the power shower alone! We had a bit of a sunbathe on the rock afterwards and I spotted an American Dipper - apparently they’re not supposed to be here, so it could be another plus point for the park… well it adds to the list anyway.

On the way back to the village I got rather frightened by some very loud thunder overhead - we were in quite an open area and was beginning to worry about the potential for lightening strikes. Needless to say we soon got drenched, although I am beginning to realise my trips to BA are not complete without a good soaking - this is the third time it’s happened to me.

Think that’s about it for the time being. Will try and add some more photos in the next few days…

wet! WET! wet is all that we have had for ages. OK so it has been sunny but I really have just got wet and the garden is wet and the everything is wet. OK so april was stunning but this is wet here. So fee, you going to invest in an umbrella? By far the best wet weather gear in the tropics

In case of thunder, sit it out on a platform high above tree canopy height (so that you do not get hit by falling branches….)

I think you’ll find that the small matter of a lightening bolt and the occasional falling branch should be nothing but a mere inconvenience for Clark Kent. At the very least he probably has a rubber suit on under his civilian clothes.

Oh dear, I do apologise. This has become a little esoteric.

Clark Kent? How did you know that was Chris’ new nickname?!

I took my glasses off at El Danto one day and all the girlies thought me rather ‘Clark Kent’. Coupled with my early morning disappearances and some unusual noises crashing through the trees early in the morning, it was concluded I had superhero powers.

(The noises were actually Highland Guan, but sometimes I really do display unusually powers).

Presumabely these were girlies who have never actually seen any representation of Clark Kent, either on paper, TV or even the silver screen. Are you sure they weren’t mistaking Clark Kent for Penry the mild mannered police station janitor who was actually Hong Kong Phooey?

[…] bar (would you believe I am near the top of the chart of number of pull ups in one go - I am a super hero after all). Guanales even has its own custom made Opwall Monopoly, again made with natural forest […]
