Costa Rica. Nicaragua.

Memories....

...of roasting fermented Cocoa seeds in Granada, making raw chocolate bars and drinking hot cocoa with chili...so delicious!

I admit, diving near ''Bat Islands'' eye to eye with Bull Sharks...brrrr, it was scary! Such a magnificent animal! (I forgot how to clear my mask - what an amateur!).

And a night dive in the Carribean ''Islas del Maíz'' : a funny pose of a turtle, naping on a reef ...cross my heart, I didn't wake her up!

Lying on the beach, drinking gintonic and watchin' good-looking guys who were surfing (...don't worry, I am not a ''Beach Bunny'' ;).

A smell of a delicious coffee...grilled fish washed with ''Toña'' and ''Victoria'' beers and of course... 'Flor de Caña'' and 'Centenario''...time flies when having RUM!

And nothing beats a ''Jugo natural'' mixed with passion fruit, papaya, mango and pineapple.

I could live there.
