Day 4 - Tortuguero and Day 5- Nicaragua

I travelled by boat along the canal to Tortuguero and saw many birds and occasional crocodiles and monkeys on the way. Yellow butterflies flew from one side of the canal to the other. As I stared into the water, the reflections of trees began to look like buildings and the reflections of clouds like castles.

In Tortuguero, the sand was a rich brown colour and my feet sunk into the wet sand as waved lapped at my legs.

That night, I ate sour cream ice-cream and then headed to the beach again to watch massive turtles come to shore to lay eggs into holes they had dug in the sand, cover them up again and waddle back to the sea. A turtle kicked sand at me, but that was okay.

On Monday morning, I was woken by a rooster in Tortuguero, then found a hermit crab in my bed, before I embarked on another boat ride.

Briefly popped in to Nicaragua to get our passports stamped and to use the toilets.
