      They won't pick you up at the airport, but they do have hourly free shuttle back to the airport which we really appreciated. Nice kitichen, wifi. Close to supermarket, and walking distance to Bank of Costa RIca in mall to pay airport exit tax if want to pay ahead of time.

      ... We spent our tour with the older residents in the men and women's houses and their disabilities in some cases were more profound then I had expected. They all seemed well cared for but the enormity of the care needed just for these residents let alone the more severely affected residents in the hospital was staggering. I found them to be very joyful in spite of their physical difficulties ...

      I have been awed by God this week. The health, comradery, and pursuit of God this week has humbled me. God wanted us here. Each and every one of us. His will is awesome.

      I'm doing good babe. Got a little dehydrated the first day but doing awesome now. Love and miss you!

      The last two days have been pretty lax. We attempted to hike Volcan Poas yesterday. The information centre was recommending people to come back another day due to mucho niebla (a lot of fog). This was nice of them as they could have just taken people's money and not said anything. Poas is the most active volcano in Costa Rica, erupting 39 times since 1828. It has erupted once in each of the past 4 years.

      We came back today ...

      Do you know the way to San Jose....?

      Up at 05-00 and on the road at 06-00 so I could get to the border before all the traffic and coaches. On the way I saw my first ever cart pulled by oxen !

      Once there got a guy to help me with the Nicaraguan side, again the offices were all over the place. I wanted to keep the bike permit as an example of how many stamps and signatures it required but the took it off me. Four stamps today on it and I was ...

      ... them...!

      The customs was a breeze. We withdrew some colones from the ATM in the international arrival area, which gave us an official exchange rate instead of the rip off rate at the exchange booth. We passed a sea of cab drivers and bright red, new cabs... walked around the parking lot to take a red TUASA bus.

      The TUASA buses come very frequently. The bus was nice and nearly empty with tiny overhead bins. The driver kept the door open, ...
