Buenos Dias Suckers!
Another trip to CR...and some of you are wondering or complaining why don't I go somewhere else...haven't you "done" CR? Well, I love it here, I love the people, I love the vibe...when I am here I am happy and that is all that matters. Then some of you are saying..."F Albert and his stupid trips why does he have to flaunt his awesome travels as I sit here in a cubicle staring at walls or listening to my kids screaming that they want more macaroni and cheese..." Well I am sorry for you and I will just say...life is short go somewhere ...anywhere...blah blah..hold on, I need to take another sip of ice cold Imperial...
Anyways...this is just a short trip to check out my shoulder and fitness, shoulder seems to be getting better but I still do not think its surf ready but no other way to check its progress then to go surfing...so I got up at like 3:30am this morning to get to the airport to catch my flight, that was awful, that was exhausting and I am tired but I am recharging as I sit here enjoying the tropical weather. But it is super hot here!
It was an easy 2 flights here, the flight from Houston to Liberia was really empty, so it was nice to have so much more room and I watched the new Harry Potter movie finally...it was good, but I have forgotten so much from the book, I may have to re-read it before the final movie comes out.
I was sitting in the front of the plane so I was like the 5th or 6th person off the plane, once walking down the gangway stairs, I get hit with the humidity and heat...so much better than the cold rainy nastiness I left in Charlotte. I walk right up to Customs/Passport control and seriously because I timed it...it took me less than a minute to walk up to the counter and get my passport stamped, then maybe 10 minutes to get my bag and walk out the door, then get hit up by taxi drivers...Brendan wasn't back from the car rental place or he was in the bar, so I checked the bar first and got a nice ice cold Pilsen...walked back down the stairs and waited a bit and we were on the road before Noon!
Off to Tamarindo!
