The campsite
We rolled into town a little after 9am, which was the time the Brits were expecting to arrive on the bus.  However, it took us almost an hour to find the bus station.  With my broken spanish, and noone else helping, i first got directions to the city bus station.  Several very kind Mexicans later, i found the main bus terminal.  Lucy and Hannah had only been waiting 30 minutes.  The reunion was sweet.  The last time i had seen my girls was May 18th, when i left them for Santiago, Chile.

We had breakfast at the taco stand across the street from the bus terminal, and then headed to the campsite.  Once we arrived, we started to set up our camping site.  The grounds were family owned by a local, and were perfect.  The Micos River runs right into the campground.  Byron and Ben had to leave later than us, so we decided to hang out at the river until they arrived.  So we went to the waterfall, and swam in the river for a few hours.  We had lunch and dinner at taco stands, delicious and very cheap.

A cold front came through later that evening so the temperature plummeted.  We made a fire and sat around and drank until we could not keep our eyes open, which was difficult due to the long drive with no sleep.
