Dolphins, Coffee Plantations and the Volcano that Wasn't There
In the last chapter, Hobbes was in Cabo San Lucas where he was quite unhappy because he was not allowed to swim with the Dolphins and had to spend the afternoon, stuffed in a locker! But then it was on to Costa Rica and a visit to a coffee plantation and the Poas Volcano which was shrouded in clouds. "On this exhilarating excursion, journey through one of Costa Rica's most magnificent natural parks and discover a crater that is alive with clouds of steam," said the description of the shore excursion. Well, not quite, as the volcano was completely obliterated, nothing. We learned later that it is visible only 10% of the time. "Tasha and Rod were very disappointed, but I took a very long nap--it was cozy on the bus," said Hobbes, who loves to sleep.
