    We read several reviews for San Jose hostels before coming, and this place seemed cool. It was fine for one night, but a very funky place. It wasn't that clean, and the bunk beds were tiny. Also, the lockers (to safeguard your stuff), all looked as if someone had pried them open with a crow bar one time or another. The people there were nice, but all in all I'd say the place was kind of a wreck.

    ... t for a wonderful woman that runs the small children programme named Terresa who gives up all her mornings to teach these children voluntarily. I would have been very lost without her. A lot of money has recently been donated to the project so I have high hopes for it to expand and help more kids in Carpio.

    So that wraps up what will surely prove to be the most influential part of this trip. I'll miss everyone in San Jose dearly and I'm already planning my trip back.

    ... bits of vines, etc from far away, and weaving them intricately into a long hanging nest that can be 2.5 feet long. There is a lone palm in Suzie's yard that the birds favor because monkeys can't swing into it. The palm has many many nests but not all are occupied. The female picks which nest she wants and then lays her eggs there. I guess it's kinda like building on spec:-)

    The man who built up this property had palm seeds from around the world ...
