    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 …

    ... and learnt so much about the world, my appreciation and love for everything we are fortunate to have in our lives has skyrocketed, and the gratitude and fortune I feel at having been able to share this experience with Ali is amazing!

    Leg two begins in September when we will both be revisiting Thailand and working our way around Asia and on to complete our trip in Australia. Watch this space for updates...!

    ... out and fatigue sets in, your will to achieve will prevail." Well, a strong will was very much needed for the 12-14km because it was HELL. It was steep, uphill, high (near 3000m at this point) AND it started raining. At 11:30am, we were at the 13 km mark. We quickly put on ponchos over our bags and tired bodies, and trekked on.

    The next kilmeter took nearly 40 minutes. The saving grace- besides having my wonderful mom as a companion- ...

    ... to iron my uniform but I was still wet from the shower and barefoot. I grabbed the iron and the force of the shock up my arm was so strong that I couldn't let it go. Mi mama came running up the stairs into the drying room (in our roof) when she heard my screams and had to knock it out of my hand. The same happened in the shower at a friend's place - much to my embarrassment!

    We showered then slept like babies.
