I've never had 12 hours turn around so quickly...but then I think that may be typical of the travel life. We woke up at Jane's and had decided to take the 11pm bus to San Jose given the late hour the 11am bus arrives in San Jose (1 am), the horrors and layovers at border crossing, language barrier in trying to grab a cab, Colones currency that we needed and currently didn't have, etc. We would have to occupy ourselves in ...
... by the storm and the call of howler monkeys, our first full day of jungle camp life lay ahead. It would be an exploratory day, to get the lay of the land and see what work we had in store. I'd already explored a little with Tavo and the ranger the previous day, so I volunteered to be one of the housekeepers for the day. We needed to leave two people in camp each day, to mind our belongings, from wily tourists and monkeys. Housekeepers were in charge of all the cooking and cleaning for ...
... idiot-I ordered in Spanish but they kept asking if I wanted this one thing but I had no idea what it was-when I said no I didn't need it, they looked at each other and made faces. Hahaha all i could do was laugh at myself. I have understood the rest of the Spanish I have heard and I even directed our cab driver on how to get back to our hostel! It's the little things in this overwhelming day that kept me smiling and ...
... atmosphere, Manos Abiertas has a distinctly heartfelt family atmosphere. No pictures of the residents faces will be included in this blog to protect their confidentiality.
There's a small classroom at Manos Abiertas where my students will be working with Laura and her students.

... tree with a hot-pink spray of grevillea like flowers. The fruit is about 5 cm long and looks like a little apple. The pulp is white, sweet and juicy - a bit like a watermelon. It has a single seed in the middle like an avocado. You can harvest 20kg of fruit when in season. There is one planted at the entrance to the beach house so we have them in the fridge at the moment.
I'll add a picture of a traditional ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsAirport Hotel Berlor Alajuela
I stayed at the Airport Hotel Berlor for 3 nights, 2 prior to going to Drake Bay and 1 night prior to leaving the country and all 3 times the service was excellent.
The hotel has an airport pick-up service, a gentleman by the name of Orlando or another family member will bring you to the hotel. Throughout my entire stay I was treated with warmth, consideration and respect. They were even gracious enough to let me accost them with my very limited understanding of the Spanish language, and made sure that I wasn't being taken advantage of, financially, by local taxi drivers.
It is a small, locally owned and operated establishment that is 5 mins away from both foreign and domestic airports, especially good if you're flying out early or coming in late at night.
It was a fabulous experience, and the courtyard outback was serenity in the midst of travelling chaos.
