Travel Blogs from Playa Samara
I am blogging from a beach... in Costa Rica.... The temperature is perfect... Probably 72 maybe 75 degrees. There is a very light breeze. A handsome tico is playing the guitar about 3 tables away from me. I just finished eating gallo pinto (a special treat that the kitchen made just for me since I know the famous Bambi). I am ...
