One of my favorite aspects of going to a new land is discovering new flora and fauna. The rainy season had just ended so the vegetation was green and lush, and animal inhabitants were out and about. Birds, reptiles, and four-legged friends mingled with scheffleras, palm trees, ancient ferns, hibiscus flowers and colorful crotons. My only regret is not seeing the iguana tree!
There were so many town dogs of all different breeds shapes and sizes. This was the lone chihuahua.
A large smiling lizard ventured into our casita. The animals and plants are so jovial in paradise.
