Coasting through Costa Rica, and Nipping into Nicaragua…

With my face swollen right down to my jaw line, I had a rather restless night… By morning, my left eye was almost closed by the large “mouse” that had developed on my cheekbone… There have been more joyous moments in my life, that I can tell you without fear of contradiction…!! Even though it […]
