    ... collected our entrance fee and gave us a map of the facility. We were then free to walk from one cage to the next to view the animals at our leisure. The cages were clean and the animals seemed healthy, but it was a little depressing to see them behind bars having recently observed their counterparts in the wild in the Galapagos, Amazon, and South Africa. The staff had told us that their mission was to rescue and rehabilitate these animals, but I believe that was just an ...

    Started our day with the hotel's "tipico desayuno", the typical Costa Rican breakfast. Not bad at all, although rice at breakfast still seems odd, just like it did in Hawaii. This rice dish is picco gallo, the unofficial national dish, and it tastes strikingly like a main meal rice dish that Phyllis does at home with black beans, wild rice and ground sausage. Scrambled eggs and fried sweet plantain slices complete the plate typico, a ...

    ... has been a challenge. It is refreshing
    to visit this place of tranquility. I spent the afternoon relaxing; I had
    worked most of Sunday and decided it was time to just relax. I took a swim in
    the river and had a nice fish pedicure. Aka. I sat on a rock with my feet in a
    small pool and let the little fishes clean my feet of dead skin, they were

    After some time by the river I moved on to rest in a hammock. I ...

    ... best, I finally found some at a small “odds and ends” shop
    that Tanya had stopped at before when I was with her running errands. Once I
    had the tins I went to track down the ingredients. The bigger supermarket had
    most everything, but was sold out of ground cinnamon and nutmeg. I found those
    at another smaller shop. It was really nice to bake; I didn’t realize how often
    I cook and bake and having not done so for two months feels very strange. ...
