Nothing like a bit of avian porn to spice up one's day.

What a strange but attractive bird! I don’t remember seeing such a large bird with such a stub for a beak.

The missus wouldn't let me photograph our room because she was lying in bed at the time! So I took a quick pic of a vacant room. Not quite honest but it was to give an impression and not provide a forensic examination.

Your room still looks very tidy. You must not have "exploded" your packs yet.

Hi Mike. Interestingly it wasn't one of the Great Unwashed. The hostel has only private rooms and no dormitories and most of the guests were Brazilian families. Management eventually tracked down the culprit who claimed to have taken it by mistake but it was too late by then.

One of the down sides of hostel stays are the odd low lifes who knock off your food. It has happened to us as well.

Not much info. on South American lizards, but this looks like some species of lava lizard. Possibly Tropidurus catalanensis.

Jean-Marc Strydom commented on Picking up from where we left off

Hi Elsp. Will be following your journal with interest too. I thought you might carry on from where you left off before doing your North American trip but I am guessing COVID restrictions relating to land border crossings needed to relaxed first.
