What is unusual is that this year we really connected with one of those couples whom we met, and then kept on meeting around the island: Adria & JP. After breakfasting with them one morning at Las Esquinas, we met up again with and spent an afternoon at The Place, and on another evening we decided to meet up for sunset drinks and dinner. At Straw Hat. One night after DH and I had gone there already. That's right -- it's a fun enough place to do two nights in a row.

We ordered a first round while we waited and made some photos, but the sunset just didn't look like it was going to provide much spectacle. Luckily, our conversation flowed spontaneously and widely, flitting from topic to topic.
