      ... We went for a beer in a cafe and cool Christmas float went by but I was too late to capture a good photo. Nice vibe. Mel went to bed but Ivo and I got our local on.

      ... it was great. The guide was brilliant and had such an eye. The notes forming the currency of Costa Rica, Collones, are really pretty with bright colours and a different animal on each value, highlighting the variety found in Costa Rica.

      ... so peaceful), but not so good for the old blog. Sigh. As part of a belated NY resolution, I will try to write more here from Costa Rica.
      In other news, we only have 4 more weeks in central America and then its back to the US. Im starting the long process of wrapping my mind around that. But before its all over, there will be a few more adventures, and Ill update with pics from the garden.
