    6 AM - Blue sky, refreshing breeze, coffee in hand, birds aplenty, life is good! Today is "A Day in the Life". We are visiting a local family in their home and eating with them. Our talk yesterday was on the education system. Schooling is compulsory until the age of 18. Trade schools are free. Public universities, there are 5, cost approximately $200 per semester.  In high school, students must learn a second language, either English or French. In order ...

    ... frustrated is an obvious understatement!! Thankfully we happened upon a kind, competent airline worker. AND thankfully all our flights from Panama back through to San Jose had been with the same airline. She actually pulled us out of line, canceled our Houston to BR flight and the NOLA to Houston flight, AND put us on a flight to San Jose THAT night. A stoke of luck for us. This took her all of 15 minutes! We gave her big hugs and ran flat out to catch our plane. ...

    Big bugs
