... harvesting from the trees, things for the
workshop…carambola (starfruit), oranges, sweet lemons, tangerine lemons, limes,
mango, papaya, herbs, chayote, some other squash, a strange fruit I have never
seen before, and pineapple. I made a list of what we would make, decided on an
order in which to make them (from sweet to sour so that we can reuse pots
without imparting a pickled flavor on a jelly) from longest cook time to
shortest. Since ...
... the onset of carpel tunnel and the "S" key on my laptop is about to give out...BUT I have 60 pages field notes and chapter drafts, 35 pages of Blog stories and 30 pages of outreach materials...all single spaced. Not to toot my own horn or anything but I can't remember the last time I was this productive. I guess I am a lot closer to the final reports I mentioned above than I realized!
... pictures. I was able to sneak up very close to the bird, he honked at me
periodically, making it clear her knew I was there but since I was moving slow
wasn’t sure I was a threat. I snapped a wonderful picture as he took off from
the steep bank of the river.
breakfast I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with my day. I decided I would
walk one of the routes Tanya and I had biked, it was ...
... gooey coating. No joke
it looked like a glass full of tiny frog’s eggs. It was very similar to those chia seed “super
food” drinks you can get in the states, in fact that may have been what it was…
It took me a few tries to drink it without making a mess, the gooeyness around
the seeds kind of stuck together making it difficult to sip, you had to gulp
it. It tasted fresh and ...
Today is was not as exciting. I spent the majority of the
day working ******* my research, getting everything ready to implement the
survey and start interviews on Friday. I
worked from 8-2 then decided to take off early since I had gotten a lot done
and the sun had come out for the first time all day; I wanted to enjoy it

TravelPod Member ReviewsLa Anita Rainforest Ranch Rincon de La Vieja National Park
We stayed here for 3 nights and loved every moment. Pablo and Ana are a lovely couple who went out of their way to make our stay memorable, and who do such a lot for the local community. We took the 3 night package, which we would recommend, partly because it is a long way to go to eat out, and also because the food is wonderful. It also includes 2 tours. We chose to have a tour of the farm and also a cookery lesson with one of the local villagers which was so nice. She cooked over an open fire and we had the meal with her family afterwards. Our cabin was lovely - spacious and spotless with a verandah with a hammock and a great view. We would thoroughly recommend this stay for anyone who wants to get away from the touristy places and have a genuine Costa Rican experience.
