    ... br> On the boat I was extremely fortunate to meet a fellow American that was working in Costa Rica and knew where to get buses to get to La Fortuna. We flew through the pointless boarder crossing where the didn't even check my bag and then had to walk a few blocks with no surveillance to get our stamps. Then we raced to the bus terminal that looked nothing like a bus terminal, found a guy to exchange some of ...

    ... and apparently ok, slow procession past the scene and over broken glass. 2. Stopped to see crocodiles at the Tarcoles bridge, famous for the congregation of crocs that gather there - apparently because of dumb tourists feeding them. 3. Missed a turning, sat nav tried to find us a 'shortcut' to get back on track, didn't work, had to back track until we were able to get back on the road we missed first time! Doh. 4.

    ... saw another hummingbird poke his head in the garden, and bought 2 fabric quetzal ornaments. We dabbed it to Santa Elena town, where we then entered an orchid museum and were instructed by an apparently expatriated gringa on how to identify an orchid's structure (petals and sepals) and what we needed to know about its function (using color to lure insects to spread pollen without even producing nectar for them in exchange, a trick that ...

    ... a rest stop along the way were treated to the sight of some colourful birds, red and green macaws. La Fortuna is a very touristy town at the foot of one of Costa Rica's active volcanoes, Arenal, and famous for its hot springs. On the way there we passed many fancy spa hotels as well as a huge lake which offered some very nice views from the bus.
