      ... work scrubbing toilets or travel the world for business, it is all about personal growth and what YOU want to do. Our world is so judgemental that it is really driving people to insanity. At the end of the day, the only opinion that matters is your own. With that being said, end your day with the question "did I do everything I can to make myself happy?"

      Me: "Cuento cuesta?"

      ... like to name things twice. I took the bus to the heart of San José and went from there. Out of sheer luck, as soon as I stepped off the bus, I came across another bus marked Sabana-Cementario just as it was leaving. I figured that was my bus and I stayed on it until I saw a whole lot of green, which I would assume to be a park. I managed to arrive there without any problems.

      ... walls by the roads/highways - I think it is tolerated because it is actually really good :) Up waaaaay too early this morning for a 6.20 pickup. First stop the Doka coffee plantation where we had breakfast consisting of Costa Rican fare - rice & beans, a fried egg of sorts with a salsa sauce & 2 tortillas.
