_8:30am 2hrs yoga with Dana on the terrace at El Zopilote was fantastic: relaxing, invigorating and fun! She teaches a mix of Anusara and Vinyasa, but she'll be gone at the end of Feb so they are in need for another teacher!
At 3pm we are ready to go to Altagracia to take the ferry at 6pm, better go earlier... Well, there were supposed to be two buses stoping by within an hr: after 2hrs none of them passed and no rides were available! Transportation is so random in Ometepe...
Eventually we had to take a taxi ($10) and we realized why nobody wants to go to the port in Altagrazia...it's a 15min unpaved road! Unbelievable.
The ferry is 1 hr late obviously. We set up our double hammock in the last spot available and realize immediately we may be underequipped: these locals have a thick waterproof plastic cover all around their hammocks because apparently it can get pretty wet and it did. Dealing with wind and occasional splashes was ok with ponchos and blankets but then a pouring rain started! What a disgrace... everything wet even our underwear!
So we had to move inside where the entire floor and benches were covered by semi-sleeping people and Jeepers Creepers was playing on the TV...so weird! They love cheesy scary movies down here! Luckily we could lay our backs on somebody's backpack, it was almost comfy, I could sleep a little.
