Ah, the hiccups of life in a developing country. The power was out yesterday from noon until sometime in the middle of the night. To be fair, it's been several years since the power's been out that long, normally we just have a few hours out at a time. Of course, no power means the community water doesn't work. We have a back up tank, but that is now bone dry. Waiting anxiously for the water to return. I'm happy to have a pool for easy bucket filling :)
In a week, we'll be celebrating the 2 year anniversary of the opening of the hostel. It's so fun to see how much we've grown. I love doing new little improvements in make the hostel better- just added some great cushions along the benches on the porch, got a bigger fridge, and a few new hammocks in the yard.
The last month has been pretty busy, lots of great guests who are around for several weeks. We've been getting together for barbecues, and a lot of the gang has been hopping in every afternoon for snorkeling.
