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.

Regardless of how it happened, our brief stopover in Costa Rica began with me spraining my ankle - the other ankle than the one I sprained just before South America. I think it's a subconscious challenge I'm setting to go into every continent with an injury.

... with seats and a dance floor. A band was playing and everyone was dancing - couples danced, kids danced and large groups danced together. Everyone was having a great time and probably planning on making a day of it.
Our driver picked us up at the hotel at noon and we headed for the airport. Thank goodness there wasn't much traffic because everyone here drives fast! Our ...
... up at Rosti Pollo's where we understood nothing on the drive-thru menu except the word Quesadilla, so we ordered two. The price? 86,000 colones.
Now I can honestly say that I have never had 86,000 anything, not even unread email in my gmail which is saying something. The money here is so weird. $1 = 499.5 colones. So you can see how easily it adds up. Still, 86,000 of some sort of money for two tiny quesadillas seemed El Stupido.
Needless to say, ...
