... is that Costa Rica is a very humble country, not like the United States. Most people here are not very rich. I told him that was fine, because I’ve never had much money anyway. Haha.

As we drove through the city, Carlos pointed out a couple of the mountains, which are absolutely gorgeous! I wish I could live somewhere with both mountains and fresh water, then I’d be completely set. One of the mountains he pointed out is actually a volcano! This is the first ...

Red flags however raise quickly as he starts walking away from the taxi rank and off to the car park. I ask him 'you are a taxi' he says yes and that he's cheaper than the ones right outside the airport. We arrive at this car, which is not a taxi, but just an ordinary car. I ask if you are a taxi, why isn't ...

... I believe Bethany is going to babysit for their children for a few days. What a great place to be babysitting. She gets to play with them on the beach (:

I am missing Tyler so much....he was our head chef among other things. He did some cooking for the Howler Monkey Hotel and taught a lady how to steam hamburgers in water and she has decided to serve them in her restaurant in Cabuya and call them Tyler burgers....his claim to fame in Cabuya. We posted ...
