The Corn Islands... again

I planned on writing about the trip to the Corn Islands much sooner, actually immediately after the post about the bluff. But I haven't been able to. Actually there isn't much to write about, we mostly just went snorkeling and ate lots of seafood. We did get to visit the new English group though, very exciting to see the first ever English group being started on the island, which really makes sense seeing that at least 50%(if not much more) of the islands local population is English/Creole speaking.

This post will be few words and many pictures, enjoy. Note: I didn't take all of these pictures, after the trip we shared pictures so some of these are from other people in our group. Click to enlarge.

Plenty of horsepower to handle the open ocean... if only one of the engines hadn't failed half way there.

At the end of the trip it was down to just me and Honorio taking the boat home. Everyone else had flown back. Some were already halfway back to Canada. The return trip was actually much more pleasant than getting there. The boat was much bigger and we had more space to move around. Both of us managed to sleep through the entire journey. Honorio used my air mattress on top of a giant cooler and I tied my hammock to the support bars for the tarp about 8 feet off the ground. I was more comfortable than in my bed in Pearl Lagoon, although I was a -bit- concerned about falling. Thankfully there were some propane tanks below me to break my fall.
