Felix Natal (Merry Christmas!)
I know, it is only Nov. 20, but the town of Bonito is decorated for Christmas. The lobby in our hotel has a tree decorated with twinkling lights and the shops and restaurants have signs and ornaments in their windows!
Bonito is a small town that caters to tourists. Several members of our group went snorkelling yesterday, but we elected to go to park by a river for the day. It was lovely! First, the temperature was about 35 degrees, but there was lots shade and the park provided chairs for us to sit on while we read and relaxed.
Don and I have decided to stay in town today. There is a small pool at the hotel and we took the opportunity to explore Bonito. It is interesting to note that even though this a tourist town, because it is Sunday, almost every store was closed. One shop that is open is the Subway. This is convenient as we can walk to the restaurant later and order a sandwich to take on the overnight bus. It is hot again today, and it felt so good to pack away our warm clothes!
Tonight we take our last overnight transport, a bus to Iguassa Falls.
