Zip Line

We woke up early this morning and headed over the mountain and through the forest to San Luis Canopy tour.  We went through the cloud rain forest on our way and we were literally in the clouds.  It was absolutely pretty.  As we were heading there it was like the colors of the trees and flowers kept getting brighter and brighter.  They were so rich. There were these orange trees that were really tall and had orange flowers at the very tip top.  They made the hill sides look like they were on fire.  There were some purple flowers too that were gorgeous. I swear the colors are not as good anywhere else.  We arrived there and immediately started getting suited up.  We did a total of 12 lines.  One of the lines was a tarzan swing.  It was a lot of fun.  It looked a lot more scary that what it actually was.  The other lines were a lot of fun as well.  There was some hiking involved so it was nice to be in cool weather and underneath the trees.  There were rivers all below us and you could hear them as you were walking.  The very last line we did, we did it superman.  You went on the longest line on your stomach.  That was spectacular.  We didn't really get to see any wild life (bummer), but I would definately recommend it and do it again.  We had a lot of fun laughing and enjoying the time together.  The only bad thing was that mosquitos were pretty bad, OFF didn't quite do the job.  Just hope that I didn't get bitten by a malaria infested mosquito.  They say the chances of actually getting it are slim to none.
We finally got to order some pizza back to the hotel tonight.  We were all so hungry.  It was nice to be able to just relax tonight.  Our plans for tomorrow changed for the millionth time.  I really wanted to go to the market again but that won't happen.  I am going to try and pick up some cigars for Dad, but I don't know now if that is going to happen : ( .  Hopefully I can go somewhere tomorrow that has some!  But it is looking like tomorrow we are going to just hang out at the hotel and pack and lay out for the day.  That is fine with me because I know that the 2:09 am flight will be miserable.  I am getting ready to just get on the plane and get it over with, but at the same time I don't really want to leave.

Here are some pictures from today, the beach in Nicaragua, and the Pinata party yesterday!
