    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.

    En gelukkig stonden alle koffers op het vliegveld, inclusief die van Floor. Vooral papa had zich nogal zorgen gemaakt dat deze niet meer zou verschijnen. We zitten nu aan ons welkomstdrankjes .. Maar 3 stuks.. Pim was echt moe en daarom bleef Floor ook maar op de kamer. Zodadelijk snel naar bed, morgen naar de Poas vulkaan.

    I would not have enjoyed San Jose, I think, if our hotel had any less art, since we could just wander around the hallways and see paintings and sculptures at every turn. Plus we did not have much time, but we did have enough to walk to the National Theater, the National Museum, and to get coffee beans.Along the way we encountered free board gaming …

    ... task! When the rain pelted down in the afternoon, we were finished for the day and we set about playing Scrabble in the shelter by our bodega. Our next few days then passed with a mixture of raking and taking turns to plant trees. When I finally got the chance to plant trees, it was a fulfilling experience. We dug holes, cleared the ground around the holes to give the small plants their best chance of survival and planted the little saplings. It was great to be ...

    ... and this is what you can buy here at the market. It fries up well with potato or you can make it into an omelet. It tastes a bit bitter if you leave in the centre pod but the petals taste a bit like asparagus. The rest of the plant is supposedly poisonous. Cool!
