Feb 4: My Birthday!
I woke up nice and fresh at 6.30am: it's easy to adjust to the rhythms of Nature without the city distractions. Yoga on the dock was peaceful and quiet. Lovely surprise: birthday flowers back in the room, thanks Robbert.
While canoeing around the islands nearby we saw more howler monkeys; a big fat spider fell on the canoe and went under my seat..haaa!! Pit stop on land to get it out and then nice swim in the lake. Note: The water is not as clear and blue as the lonely planet says but still clean and worthwhile.
In the afternoon i enjoyed the bday wishes online (thanks friends!) and a walk to the local museum, where the history of the island is shown along with beautiful local paintings. I also met few artists along the way that were painting on their porch in the lovely sunset. Sweet life.
