I sincerely apologize regarding the delay in this week’s post. I’ve spent the past 5 days desperately trying to upload our Episode 10 – Momentos: Guatemala only to be disappointed at the internet dropping in the middle of the night or an estimated time of 2000 minutes to upload.
Life on Utila has been incredible. Besides dodging the motorcycles and tuktuks trying to run you over while walking down the street, we have done quite well adjusting to “island life”. In other words, we are taking life extremely slowly. I tell ya, hanging out with 1 Dad, 1 Kid blogger Talon and his son Tigger bring it out in us. They are on island time as well.
While I would love to report exciting feats every day, I’ll just describe our day to day life right now.
When not diving we wake up at about 9 and eat breakfast.
Then we hang out and do some work, answer emails, etc.
Then we eat sandwiches for lunch.
After lunch we have an iced coffee at the best coffee place within COUNTRIES, Rio Coco Cafe (post coming soon).
After coffee we meander down to the Bay Islands College of Diving (where we took our scuba classes) and swim off their amazing dock.
Exhausting swims and tanning make us very hungry so we then roam the streets until we find a restaurant we want to eat at.
Sometimes we even go meet friends at a bar for a beer or two before heading home, watching the boob tube and go to sleep.
My life is really hard right now.
There is a joke around Utila:
The 3 lies of Utila:
1. I’m leaving tomorrow.
2. I’m not drinking tonight.
3. I love you.
We thought we would only be here for 4-5 days… 3 weeks later and with budget accommodations we are still here. We also thought we were leaving on Saturday morning but mid-dive yesterday I realized we still have a while before we need to be in Costa Rica.
How does Wednesday sound?
