The day starts pretty early for me: At 05:15, I get ready to watch the sunrise at the Mirador. I cannot bring Frank to tag along . I have to do a few detours to the hill though – there are way too many (loud) stray dogs on the streets, which seem to defend their territory. About half an hour later, however, I reach the top. I can not observe a clear sunrise, yet watching the colorful cloud formations was worth getting up this early. Taking a reality-like photo of this doesnt seem possible with my tiny compact-cam though – perhaps I should look for a new camera after this trip – no DSLR though… way too big. Maybe a DSLM? At any rate something with a larger sensor. Back in the Casa we have breakfast before we go to Cueva del Indio. We have still enough time before we have to return the scooter.
Cueva del Indio –
Marco, our guide for the birdwatching tour we booked yesterday, is already waiting for us. We start immediately following a path through tobacco fields and some groves. We take occasional breaks during our two hour hike to get told about about the plants and animals we encounter.
