Currently in La Rosa, a nice hotel in San Josť, Costa Rica, and it is 2am local time and 8am back home. So i'm starting off with a classic case of jet lag.

Due to the flooding last week we were close to being unable to get to the main road from our house, so we decided to book into the Travelodge at Heathrow T5. It was a usual travelodge …

... airport but I guess they think while you are waiting for your flight - you might by a drink and try to sneak it on from there. So, if you buy a bottle of water within the airport, you still can't bring it on your flight. We weren't use to this procedure. Normally, if you buy anything within the airport, you can bring it on the flight.. Not here... ! Anyways, we made it onto the flight and were off into the wild blue yonder.. :)

... It's a jungle out there" may have well come from this area. There is a national park and a couple sanctuaries where we saw dozens of animals, birds, and reptiles that can only ever be seen in these such jungles. Here is a list of our "top" sightings: Ocelot, Kinkajou, Agouti, Coati, Jesus lizard, a leaf frog, a dart frog, 3 types of monkeys,Toucans, Parrots, and a Motmot.

... and refreshing start to the day and so great to be able to help and comfort someone by sharing the power of the love of Christ. Had some other convos that led to lunch and then we got stuck in the food place for about 3 hours! because the storm was so bad soooo we had lots and lots of time to talk and talk to our new Tiko friends! Our night at the hostel was super fun because it gets dark here at like 5:30, so we spent the night playing games in candlelight ...

    We're a family of four starting a 9 month trip to Latin America. La Rosa was our starting point and have been great. They organised a pick-up which went very smoothly and we had a relaxing day by the pool to recover from our travels. The pool is lovely, the staff helpful and relaxed, and we were able to walk to a local cafe for lunch. We ate at the hotel - first guests at their restaurant for the season.

    We were very happy with our night at La Rosa. The room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was delicious with lots of nice fruit, bread, eggs, and cheese. I also appreciated the efforts they took to make such lovely gardens
