• White Mangos

    It is sometime after six in the morning and I waived Kaiwen and Sue Quei off on their adventure to Gautemala City guided by the owner of Dreamcatchers, so it will be just us boys on the boat until the end of the week. Kaiwen did a large provisioning run for us yesterday, so we have everything we need to stay focused on our work on Million on Mars.

    With my cold brewed coffee I walked barefoot across the rain soaked grass of the Nana Juana resort. I am hunting for white mangos! You have to be up early to win this Easter egg contest, as the other cruisers and grounds keepers all are eager to be up early when the day is pleasently cool.

    White mangos are like the other mangos you get in the store, but usually a little smaller and in my opinion a little sweeter. The property has four mature trees and after just 10 minutes of wlaking around the trees encrusted with wild orchids I am richer by nine mangos!

  • A Month in the Rio Dulce

    Rio Dulce - a Cruiser’s Paradise

    We have now been in the Rio Dulce for just over a month, and I can see how people end up never leaving this freshwater cruising ground. It is large enough that you could pickup and anchor in scores of new spots and never get bored. You could anchor off in side rivers, or in little coves, or near the town, or near one of the resorts or just off in the middle of the river/lack and have all the privacy in the world.
