Day 142 - A Chili Day

Date: 11/19/12
Location: Costa de Oro, Costa Rica

Word of the day: Chile - Chili
Turtle Fact: Loggerhead Sea Turtles are the most common Sea Turtles to be found in the southeastern part of the United States. They are mostly found at shipwreck sights.

Wake up 5:30am in Hatchery. Go to bed in house until 7:30am. Make breakfast (bread-egg-whole).

Emails. As I start thinking ahead and preparing for return back to "real" life, I have begun the process of getting back in contact with the people I was in touch with, just before I left (in regards to future employment). This consumes most of my morning hours and will most likely become a new trend for the last couple weeks here. Want to hire me?

Arts and crafts. Rake and pick up beach. Lunch (leftovers)

Siesta. Arts and crafts. Dig out holes in hatchery. Get my sweat on. Shower. Cook. Collect garbage on beach. Dinner (Chili with cornbread)

Siesta. Updates to Hatchery. Hammock. Sleep.

Lesson: KISS. Keep it simple stupid.

Food: Chili. For me this usually takes hours and hours to make, slow cooking the goodness so that the flavor is soaked into every bit. However this batch was made in record timing.
Animals: Dogs, Birds, Spiders, Flies, Ants, Crabs, Mosquitoes

Something I am thankful for: Flavor Packets.
Something I don't want to admit: I ate oldy moldy cheese in my Chili, thinking it was just a weird flavor of Costa Rican cheese.

Total Baby Turtles I Released:1,095
Days of Rain: 87/138
