    Bad start on day 5

    Yep, we blew it this morning. We left our camera sitting on a bench at the Butterfly Farm to go with the guide and did not notice for about ten minutes, and of course it was gone. Oh well, it was a couple of years old and was only $329 (he says sarcastically). I thought butterfly lovers would be nice people. I hope they enjoy all the Ireland pics still on the SD card. I hate to buy one here, but if anyone has a suggestions for good camera deals, please let me know. Lunch at Yami Yami (Dutch Asian they say) was very good and inexpensive. To get there turn inland where you would turn left to Playa Linda off the main road. And the police were eating there too.

    I would check out Bulchans. I think thats what its called. Its a nice electronic store there and its really pricey as you would imagine it to be. I broke one of my Canon cameras there and ended up buying the same one and a waterproof casing to fit it there. I think I actually paid the same as what I would in the states.

    There are a few electronic stores downtown, behind the Mall at the Ren. Forgive the spelling but one is called Boolchards on the street behind the Ren.

    If you cannot wait until you get home, compare prices using the internet cafe downtown once you find a model you like.

    Thanks for all the quick responses. I couldn't help myself, just went to three electronics stores around the Renn and did settle for a relatively inexpensive. I really wanted to have pictures. Oh well, off to Dolphin sunset cruise soon.
