Day 36 – Hotel Caribe
Another late breakfast, it has been a nice change having breakfast served until 10am – no need to get up early to get everyone ready for breakfast by 7am or 8am. It seems to be even hotter this morning – walk out of the airconditioned building, and start sweating instantly. Makes breakfast a little less pleasant than one would normally expect.
After we got back to the room and fed Andres again, he slept until 1pm. I needed to get caught up on a bit of work, so Leanne got a few things organised and then relaxed on the bed while Andres slept.
We decided to go out and try and find something to eat for lunch, so got dressed and wandered up the street. Not being happy with anything we found, we ended up at the supermarket and bought some sandwiches, fruit and orange juice (plus some other supplies we needed) and then walked back to the hotel, where we sat outside in the shade and ate.
That afternoon, I caught up on some more work while Leanne and Andres napped.
We had decided to go out to one of the restaurants up the road for dinner, but when we got downstairs we discovered it had started raining. I went back to get the umbrella and some warmer clothes, but by the time I got back it had turned into a bit of a tropical storm with heavy rain and gusty winds. We decided it was not a good idea to try and walk anywhere in this weather and it didn’t show any signs of easing off in a hurry, so we ended up back upstairs and ordered room service again.
Of course, by the time our food arrived, the rain had eased off to a drizzle, but if we had waited until now to leave, it would have been very late before we got our dinner at a restaurant.
