    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.

    ... the bus station, with a few minutes to spare. The bus took 1h to the boarder, where we had to take off all our bags and go through customs. We had to pay and exit tax of around $8 to get our passport stamped before having to walk across the boarded get our passports re-stamped on the Costa Rican side. Once back on the bus it took about 4hours to get to San Jose. We were able to spread out as the bus was not very busy most of us used this opportunity ...

    Highlights: -called my host mom in the airport to say 'hola' and 'see you soon'. She spoke zero English and I speak close to zero Spanish. She obviously caught wind of my nerves, because she kept repeating 'tranquilo' which means 'calm down' ;) That call lasted all of 2 minutes. -arrived in Costa Rica and had to go through customs before getting my bags. First lesson: I am a 'visitante', ...

    ... girls) and Maiju and I had a surf lesson with a young pro surfer, Oscar Manuel, in Dominicalito - the waves were much harder than Montezuma, but really fun. In the evening we watched the sunset on the beach, before dinner and ping pong with Oscar, followed by "ladies night" at a nearby bar, at which we were the only ladies!

    I woke up very early the next morning for a promised free surf lesson from Oscar which unfortunately didn't happen because the ...

    ... The market is completely alien to us, minus Sara and Diane, so we lean on them to direct us to the items we desire. It’s crazy how different the products we are used to seeing in the US are packaged and marketed. Subtle differences in packaging and not so subtle differences in flavor are apparent. The use of REAL SUGAR is the biggest difference I notice. High Fructose Corn Syrup is alien here…

    Interestingly enough, GMO’s were a hot topic here for ...

    ... everyone but the ol' sea dog captain to be reduced to their knees in weakness. The creaking and banging of the wooden cabin was so loud I thought we were going down any minute. Having just finished reading The Perfect Storm was not the best comforter to say the least. Estimating that I snatched 2 hours sleep on top of the navigation table that night would be more than generous.
