May 16 – Another day in paradise

Woke up at 9 to catch the buffet. Went for a four-hour hike around the area that had us dare-devilling cliffsides, rock-climbing, and braving barbed-wire. Back in time for lunch. Ate. Napped. Swam. Waited for Karin’s boyfriend, Allister, and his party to show up (they should have been here two days ago). Wandered around town learning Spanish. Found Allister and group drinking heavily on their room’s balcony. They regaled us with the tales of adventure expected from a two-week-long mountain bike excursion through Bolivia. Not only had they dodged numerous attempts on their lives by campesinos, but also endured food poisoning and numerous hangovers, cruised through the Amazon jungle and boated down the Zongo river. The reason they were late was because their shadow vehicle had taken out a power line, blacking out out all of Coroico for half a day. There they worked for two days with the locals helping fix the power and restore the road so the two-day traffic jam could finally flow through.

We all went out to eat. They all drank. Then we all slept.
