A tropical day in Pico


As the hotel in Pico was rather oldish it had no air-condition… In principle you can survive that (we did in Costa Rica), but if there is no air movement at all and 25° at night plus 75% humidity you feel like being washed out of your bed. Not so nice…

If then the breakfast is a bit more on the abysmal side, you opt out to survival mode and break your fast at the wall to the see in a slight breeze. This turned out to become our usual spot of eating Zwinkerndes Smiley

Despite this, the territory of the hotel is wonderful and the old trees and lava formations are just beautiful.

Back in the hotel we had some nice time at the sea until a German family came discussing the beer prices in Germany and how bad everything is in life… We went… I was even tempted to ask them in German (as we spoke Latvian the whole time…) if they even in a wonderful spot like this can enjoy something without nagging all the time.
