Costa Rica is like many foreign airports in the fact that they don't allow any guests into the airport. So we had to wait outside and look for his mother. We had our faces pressed against the glass so that we wouldn’t miss her. However, we still did. She came out of the airport and, of course, got harassed by men asking if she wanted a taxi. She was trying to explain that shedding’t need a taxi because she was looking for her son when she saw Devin’shat. We were very excited to see her and we quickly headed off for our first night.
In true fashion, it took us awhile to get out of the city because there were no street signs and we drove in circles
As we were chatting a few guys with machetes started walking down from the mountain. They we refinishing up their workday and one, in particular, decided he wanted to stop and chat with us! He stayed and went on and on for about 30 minutes, in Spanish. Of course we didn’t understand that much but whatever he was saying he was very excited about it.
We enjoyed the excellent meal down by the river and settled in for Bev’s first night in Wesley.
