    ... wearing scrubs, and from this trying to work out where we were we found a gorgeous old Catholic Church, elaborately decorated with stain glass and roof paintings seen in pre reformation Britain. The new hotel (hotel autentico) was a welcome luxury, with just the lobby far superseding the previous hotel. The next morning we met Rikke (Danish) for breakfast and got a taxi back over to Kaps Place where we met Naimph and Maggs, two other Brits. Planning to take them to the same ...

    ... t even describe the difference between a fresh Costa Rican pineapple and the ones you would find at Meijer. Even mostly dried, the pineapple here still tastes juicier and sweeter than any that I’ve ever had.

    ... as "the building next to Pedro's store that was torn down in 1989". San Jose's drivers, particularly its taxi drivers, should all be in prison.

    Of all the San Jose suburbs we visited, Atenas, Grecia and Escazu (in that order) were the nicest from our standpoint. Even so, Beth and I are not interested in living in any of these communities. ...

    Today was another interesting day (as always). I thought we were going to go to soccer practice but that didn't happen. Instead we went to the soccer field and I had to be in a group photo with the team. Awko-taco. After that, we went to the aunts house and hung out there for a while, picked Jeni up from first communion class and went back to the aunts house. We played a lot of Crocodile-Mooreh (no me gusta). It's a hand slapping game. After that, we went back to ...
