... one of which you have to dress smartly. That rules Billy out. Inland a few minutes walk is the harbour. This has two bars. The Crows Nest and West Point. We went to West Point on Friday and there was a karaoke on. Two songs from the end there's an argument at the bar. The barmaid points some angry English to a lady who is clearly the owner. Finger pointing and shouting ensue. It appears he off a boat moored in the harbour and he think the music is ...
... were behind the black ball. No pun intended. Broad kept Root on and Sammy spanked him for 23 off the next over. Root didn't bowl again. Too late the damages was done. The Windies then carnaged the remaining overs and ended up with 30 more than they should have got. Some of Broad field placing astounded me. One such case was when Bresnan was bowling at Bravo and we had 4 in the ring on the leg side with nobody out. Bresnan bowled 2 bouncer and was dispatched for ...
... cataraman trip. Top budgie smuggler wearer and his lover are in the queue. Billy's fuming. The Wadadli Cats cataraman turns up and they get on it. Wadadli is the local beer. Our one shows up and we board. The other pair of mincers are on it but they are with their Canadian buddies. I spot a fittie. Mission for the day is to get a picture. We sail round the coast into St Johns (the capital) to pick up some others. There's 3 massive ...
A quick update on the tickets. Tracey (the Virgin rep) took my two e-mails from the WICB to get my tickets and then gave then to someone else. She rang me last night to let me know she had located the person and I could collect them this morning. Met up and she gave me my e-mails back. No tickets. I've got to collect them from the ground. Don't think she went to get them in the first place. Feel one of my legendary letters coming on when I ...
... tell them that's a UB7. How on earth do you know that and I explain that I once won a heat of mastermind and it was my specialised subject. Billy tells them he's swum the channel. How long did that take she asks. 3 days Billy replies. We have them in stitches all day. That's what I love about Billy's and my relationship. We can talk about nothing or everything and we laugh all the time.
Think we should get married!

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel AmaTierra San Pablo
If you're in Costa Rica, you must stop at the Hotel Ama Tierra.
AmaTierra was, quite simply, the best place we stayed in Costa Rica. A gorgeous setting nestled cozily in a hill with spectacular views. The beautifully appointed rooms have a great bathroom, with a shower that made me feel I was back at home. I could say so much but I think "Loved AmaTierra" from Tucson has said most of it! I agree wholeheartedly.
A Honeymooner's Paradise
My husband and I had the priviledge of having this hotel as one of our stops during our honeymoon and loved it. The staff and owners made us feel at home and the property itself was like a tropical paradise. The food and atmosphere were so inviting we would definitely recommend it highly to couples or anyone in need of an escape from the everyday! We are already looking forward to going back for our anniversary!
Relaxing getaway at Tia Ama
We spent 10 days in Costa Rica and had a fantastic holiday, we visited three very diverse areas, each was excellent. We spent 2 nights at the Hotel Tia Ama, the rooms, the food and the company were excellent. Bob and Jill our hosts wnt out of their way to cater to all of our needs. We spent probably the best day of the holiday visiting the local Tarribarri park which was arranged through the hotel.
When we visit Costa Rica we will definately stay at the Tia Ama again.
We just returned from a 10-daystay in Costa Rica, where we stayed in 3 different places. Our favorite was the AmaTierra, a lovely new ( 2 years old) 10-casita hotel just off the road that runs between San Jose and Jaco, in an area called the Central Highlands. The grounds are forested with native trees and many flowering plants very well-tended by the 2 gardeners.
AmaTierra (formerly known as La Finca Que Ama) is a real gem. The place is intimate, well managed, and incredibly restful. We spent two days there before heading to the beach and it really set our trip off on the right note. Within minutes of arriving, Jill, the owner with her husband Bob, fed us a delicious, refreshing salad, put us immediately at ease, and within a couple hours, my wife was getting a fantastic massage and we were lounging by the pool -- totally relaxed and recovered from our trip. The pool is lovely, if a little small, and the bungalows are spotless, comfortable and nicely appointed. Lastly, and this is no small thing in Costa Rica, the food is FANTASTIC. Truly. It's simple, healthy, hearty, and plentiful. The meals we had there were by far the best we had in our week in Costa Rica. I even miss them in NYC. Go to AmaTierra and chill. There's no place like it.
La Finca Que Ama was the perfect place to unwind between tourist heavy Arenal and Manuel Antonio. Neta was there to greet us the second we got out of our vehicle and was more than accommodating, making us a light lunch right when we got there (not usually offered), and then not even charging us for it! Even better, the lunch was delicious! Actually, all the food there is - the breakfasts and dinners, which are included, are made with care and the best ingredients. You eat family style (which would make a New Yorker nervous!) but it was so much fun - we talked the whole time about everything, and before you know it, you have been sitting there for three hours. One of the nights there was a blackout and we ate by candlelight - a once in a lifetime experience to eat in absolute pitch blackness on a balcony with a thunderstorm around you.
We spent 1 unforgettable night at La Finca Que Ama. It was a privilage meeting Neta and Arbel; this is a true B&B experience as it was meant to be.
How would I describe La Finca Que Ama? Serenity, Beauty, Creativity and Hospitality beyond expectation.
The views from this place are beyond spectacular. Although it is further out from San Jose than other, more popular "just outside of San Jose" hotels (like Vista del Valle and Xandari, both of which we stayed at), the views from the balcony of the main building (in which is located the dining area) and from the infinity pool, rival the very best of them! Had we known of these stunning mountain vistas, we definitely and gladly would have driven out a little further after our arrival to start our holiday there.
