This is not the season to see quetzals, but considering we've seen three in less than a month, perhaps the seasons are changing? This time, we saw a quetzal AND we had enough time to grab my camera (thanks to Kevin). Without a telephoto lens, it doesn't look like much, but at least there's proof! He stuck around for several minutes, just sitting on the branch, singing his song. So beautiful with its bright blue feathers, green head and red breast (although we could only see the back of it)
Today, we went to our good friends' place for lunch. Rafa and Minor are always amazing hosts and they cook a mean Indian meal. It's such a treat as we don't get to eat Indian food very often. Everything was so delicious.
Rafa and Minor have eight rescue dogs, and they all greet us when we arrive. They're all different with their own personalities. Always entertaining. And then there is one cat... this cat... his name is Socrates. He's really lovely and I couldn't resist taking this picture.
