|Palo Verde Jungle Tour|
While in Liberia, we took a tour on the Tempisque River called the Palo Verde Jungle Tour. We saw many different species of birds as well as crocodiles. On the trip back to our hotel we stopped along the side of the road and were treated to an up close encounter with a howler monkey troupe and were able to take a few amazingly closeup shots of a mama howler and baby. Lunch was at Rancho Los Coyotes where we enjoyed some excellent local cuisine as well as a demonstration of how local pottery is produced.

The bus transfer to Granada was uneventful and we enjoyed a week of relaxing and preparing for the Regional Convention in Ticuantepe. One morning we joined the local Granada congregation in service. Our group was assigned search work as well as inviting all English speakers we found to the Regional Convention. Pat and his partner had a long chat with a fellow in the territory and was able to show him the convention trailer video. The young guy said that he would try and attend.

Today we are finally heading for Corn Island. After much thought and consulting with the experts, we have decided to ship our 3 heavy bags on the Captain D and take a flight out this afternoon. We are excited to be finally getting to our destination and will update with pictures as soon as we can.
