... leaves but eat the fungus that grows on them. The ants leave a pheramone (sp?) trail so everyone knows the way to and from.





The joke here is that the Leaf-Cutter ants are the Costa Rican army. Did you know that Costa Rica doesn't have an army?? The military here was disbanded in 1948 and all the money used to fund their military has been redistributed between education and health care.

... noise, yet they are very laid back at the same time. The food is delicious (although not as spicy as I expected) and there is a wide array of vegetables and fruits available to the people year round. I have especially been impressed by the incredible landscapes I have seen so far. You walk outside and immediately feel the freshest cleanest breeze.
