Getting to Volcán

After a long day, we are here. Now, just trying to figure out supper, and waiting for our luggage to be delivered (it decided to go on a different plane).

The bus ride was long, it started off empty and cold, and got fuller and hotter as we went. We got off in a town called LA Conception, that everyone calls Bugaba for some reason (so we couldn't find it on the map and were surprised when the conductor told us to get off). The lady we are renting from met us at the bus stop with a Nissan Patrol. We crammed all of our luggage in and a couple on the roof while she tried to get the car started. It finally started and she didn't want to shut it off so I watched the car while she ran into Dominoes with GeoLin and the kids to pickup some pizzas for supper. They came out and I ran into the grocery store for some breakfast stuff. Interesting that in the dairy capital of Panama, milk is $5.35/gallon. Eggs on the other hand are $1.00/dozen for large fresh ones.
After a short trip up the mountain through some very windy roads like the fun road in California, we arrived at the compound and our house. We were greeted by the family and kids, and Tig, Addy, and Caed all ran off into the field to play. The power and water were out when we got here, so we unpacked quick while there was still light. Keiran and I did spider patrol cause the house has not been lived in for a while. We played skip rope for a bit in the candle/flash light, then just in time for bed the power came on and the pump kicked in for the water.
They had a pile of fresh fruit, bananas, pineapple, watermelon, papaya, lemons and oranges and fresh flowers on the table for us, it was wonderful.
We met one of the other people renting one of the other houses here, very friendly.
The stars are amazing, and the wind is crazy!
