          So we got on the plane at 8? I think? I don't remember. Anyways, we got on the plane, flew to Dallas, Texas and then we flew to San Jose, Costa Rica. We got there at 7:30pm?? I think?

          Why Costa Rica? With the beautiful variety of flora and fauna, relative closeness to our home, great infrastructure, friendly people and just the right amount of exoticness it seemed like the perfect trip to go on this Winter Holiday.

          Manuel Antonio

          Well this weekend (Jan 30th to Feb 1st) we went to Manuel Antonio with CEA. On the bus ride there we stopped at a neat little roadside stand with food and souvenirs. Theses souvenir shops are very common and all sell very similar things so we don't usually spend to much time there, although Jessie did buy one of the most delicious pineapples I h...
