We set up camp at Cerro Arequita, as did hundreds of others. They came in busloads and quickly filled the mini-cabanas and campsites. A little loud, but mostly people just walked by and stared at us. We seemed to be something of a curiosity.
The campsite was in a beautiful hill country location, quite a bit different from the coast we’ve been on only 50 miles away. Our favorite part was a really odd assortment of animals they had in a large pen near the entrance. I did not know that these animals could peacefully coexist. Well, all but the peacock who seemed to rule the roost and terrify even the goats.
Jason went to work on a few bus projects, namely repairing my seat again (yay!) and fabricating a steering coupler.
Bode and I joined Karman, our German friend for a horseback ride. It started well, but ended with Bode rashy and teary-eyed. Apparently, he is allergic to horses (this one, anyway) and/or the sheepskin saddle. Lo horible!
