    ... of the things I've learned today: Costa Rica does not have an army. The literacy rate is 96%. Costa Ricans are called "Ticos". Costa Rica industries (in that order): Tourism, microchips industry Intel is here (who knew?), coffee, bananas and pineapples. Children under 18 cannot work unless they get permission from their parents and school authorities. I'm having a great time. Wine is ...

    ... world! Although I didn't find it until after I'd already eaten. But I have a 4.5 hour layover there on the way home, so I will definitely check it out then.

    ... hostel for $5 a night, and it's really nice. We decided to do a canopy zip line in the afternoon, followed by a night trek to see nocturnal animals when it got dark. The zipline was a lot of fun, although it absolutely tipped it down with rain and we got soaked through to the bone... Luckily it wasn't too cold. The zip lines were incredible though, and it was all really organised. Most of them were really long, and ...
