The hospitality was wonderful here; after we'd been ripped off (sad to admit) by taxi drivers who stole our information from the real don carlos shuttle and claimed to be them (DC offers a shuttle from the airport to hotel for a reasonable price), the manager actually took that amount of money off of our bill since he felt bad for us and for some reason even seemed to give us a discount on the stay. I was not expecting such great customer service! The hotel room was clean and the breakfast (free) was just fine. I'd definitely stay here again.

They form the boxes using glue and then put them in a compression machine which presses down vertically on the boxes and tells you the maximum resistance force the box is able to implement. A few slightly different shapes of boxes are used by Fyffes; one is actually able to withstand more force ...

For the first time on our trip it has been cloudy and raining almost every day but it's kind of a nice change.
After spending two nights at our hostel we jumped on a local bus to a little guesthouse called Casa Kibi Kibi in San Pedro, a suburb just outside of the city Center. It's very quiet and is where we will call home for a week or so until we head to our apartment we have booked for a month from the 13th.
I can't believe how fast the time in San Jose has flown by! I only have three more nights here in this house! I have really enjoyed the experience and wish that I could stay longer! I really enjoy talking with my family and think that they are pretty much the best thing ever! Mi madre costarricense is very talkative and we watch the news together and she tells me about what is happening in Costa Rica (because I don't understand everything that the news anchors are saying).
