    A great little hotel in Alajuela

    This was a great little hotel to start and end our trip to Costa Rica in. It is a $5 cab ride from the airport which is so convenient for late night arrivals & early morning departures, is located near banks, food, the bus stop & the Central Park in Alajuela. It didn't look like much when we pulled up at night with all the buildings in the area being locked at night and the street deserted, but once you get used to the different feeling of Alajuela compared to other North American small cities, it's nothing to worry about. We fell asleep to the sounds of the street (cabs honk their horns as they drive through intersections and red lights) and woke up to the sound of birds chirping and roosters calling. In the morning the owner made us a delicious breakfast and gave us advice on how to get to Manuel Antonio from Alajuela on the bus and what to do around town while waiting for the bus. The staff were very friendly, helpful and knowledgable about Costa Rica. The room & beds were comfortable, we didn't need AC as the fan was more than enough to keep us cool, there was a tv (although we didn't watch it) and the shower had hot water. Such great value for the price. We will definitely stay here again

    ... when we get there. I'm so glad Jake was with me, because he had the flight nailed down and was talking to the airline about the missing flight confirmation within 30 minutes...maybe I will stick to tours when I'm on my own.

    We board the flight, spirits low after a rollercoaster day. We get to the Santa Maria airport in San Jose and grab a cab. Julian's advice is bang on - after the cab pimp ushers us along ...

    ... as a refresher for a number of the group and we spend our evening in the open air kitchen area discussing the days adventure and what lay ahead for us in the coming days. All in all, a wonderful day is coming to a close. A two hour time difference has the older folks in the crowd feeling a bit more tired than the younger ones and slowly we all head off to our respective rooms to dream about splendor of Costa Rica...

    -That's it for now!!

    ... her one-on-one sessions in the physical therapy room, and also helped with massages. This close contact with the residents was a unique part of the preparation week for me. I gained a broader perspective as well as a more specific understanding of the facility care regimen as well as the nature of the residents' physical abilities and disabilities. Mira often asked for my advice with many of the residents' needs, especially with communication. ...

    ... issues have cleared room for some deeper thinking, which can only be beneficial. I have had to face a slight fear or discomfort that has been with me for a while that is being around 'unstable elderly'. To recognise that these people were once my age, completely independent, perhaps traveling the world or working demanding jobs is a critical step towards humility and compassion. Despite these sensitive, slightly depressing topics, the people that work and live at the home are mostly ...

    SAFETY Lesson for San Jose, and in general.

    ... my street backup and a "map in my hand!" Not good!...

    Apparently on some neighborhoods, you can actually be assaulted with a weapon... and that is a situation you DON'T WANT TO BE IN!... so that is what I have been thinking this morning... how to avoid becoming a "target" for the drugers who are the ones who seem not too vacillate to hold you up and ask for whatever.
