    ... the wild as they have been hunted almost to extinction and a young bird can be sold (illegally of couse) for about 2,000. A great temptation. That was the first time the guide had seen one perched in over 2 years, and the first seen flying in over 2 months. I had asked him to find one for me at the start of the walk and he had said it was not possible. He could not believe how lucky we were.

    The amount of caregiver respite that Casa Diba offers may seem minimal (3 hours), but it helps greatly to relieve some of the burden that these families carry. Many of the caregivers of these patients are single, old, and alone. There's a man in his 40s at Casa Diba and his only caregiver ...

    ... the road in the dark to the Costa Rican entrance building. It was quite a
    memorable experience especially as it got very dark yet no-one was very clear
