The downtown is not in a friendly neighbourhood, there were a dozen policemen doing a drugs bust when I arrived.
I did not leave the hotel.The hotel it self is not one of the best Best westerns, it´s old and needs knocking down and moving out of the town centre.

... If the nests are left on he beach where they are laid, it us most likely that they will be raided for sale. You can see my research partner, Perry, excavating a different nest in the hatchery of some of the eggs that didn't make it from a transplant.

Manuel and Jason pick me up at 8:30am and the rain is easing off!!! We head for the day to Pairhe Budgie (this ...
... lunch followed by a delicious cup of coffee!
Our next stop was the town of Sarchi, famous for manufacturing wood items, particularly chairs and other furniture, and the traditional oxcarts that were used to transport coffee over the mountains to the coast for export. Phoebe and Hugh had several of the famous Sarchi chairs, rockers with wood frames and leather ...
... the tour we were all ready to return to home base. I changed into sweats, drank some warm tea and tried to get warm until spanish class at 7.
Tomorrow after work we are making handmade corn tortillas, then having a guest speaker who is a nurse manager in the area in to talk about how socialized healthcare works (and doesn't work) in Costa Rica. After that it will be pack and prepare for a weekend on the Caribbean which we leave for Friday right after work!
