      ... it to start back up but no luck. Then I had Neil come over and try his luck but he couldn't get it either. Then we saw the employee and asked him for help. Of course, he just pushed down on the lid, and like magic, it started back up. Thank goodness! The dryer was filled with sheets so we just ended up bringing the clothes back and hanging it on the line. Definitely took more time than I would plan for laundry but at least we can last a week until figuring it out again! ...

      On Sunday, August 31st, we visited the San Jose suburbs of Atenas and Grecia as well as Alajuela, the second largest city in Costa Rica.

      San Jose is a dirty town with a crime rate only exceeded by Puerto Arenas. Its streets are an incomprehensible maze with few directional signs. Addresses are often expressed in such ...

Gifts of pisco bought after security with the security seal on them - have to check it plane side. So we had to quickly shuffle ...

      ... tick a box on the customs entry form to say that you understand this. Hardcore, Costa Rica.

      After negotiating the local bus system without knowing any useful Spanish, we arrive in San Jose. San Jose gets a pretty bad rap. Everyone who has been told us it's a bit of a hole, so we only booked two nights. It was actually a pretty cool place. I don't have any other Latin American cities to compare it to yet, but it was bustling, safe, a touch chaotic, ...

      ... lol
      Today, we spent much of the day strolling the streets and markets. We encountered a fruit called mamón, which is in the same family as the lychee and even more delicious. I've eaten so many of them today. We stopped into a smaller shop to look around and found another fruit called jocotes. A woman who was also shopping did her best to explain what they were and encouraged us to try them. They were good! So when ...
