Flag of Costa Rica  ,
Saturday, August 30, 2008

Well here we are again, in Costa Rica and it is still raining. Last year we left at the caribbean crossing and now arriving, at the pacific side via the Panamerican highway. You can imagine how pretty it is here because with rain comes lush green and colorful country sides where nature and farmlands make an intricate pattern. Ecuador comes to mind as we glance across the landscape but worlds apart in every other way.
We scale to heights over 3300 mts. crossing the cloud covered pass on route to San Jose and revel in breaths of fresh cold air because shortly we will descend into hot wet weather.
There is some comfort in coming to previously conquered territory but no comfort in knowing that if we stay too long will turn green- not with envy but with mold. At the camp ground in Belen Richard, Rox, and Shilo a white lab come to greet us and welcome us. It didn't take long to catch up with the California/Costarican family who own this place and to notice the improvements since last stay here. It feels good to be here and to discover that it is actually cooler.
Days pass quickly as we busy ourselves with cleaning and organizing. With hotel stints we tend to get out of sync with the system that works so well for us. Gillie is herself again and has taken up her position in the doorway or on the mat outside the door. We have given in to her and commit acrobatic acts each time we want to step outside.

gordo on

When are you going to settle down?
I'm getting dizzy with following you two round on travelpod. You move too fast. Surely you ought to be thinking of setting a good example and putting your roots down somewheres. And surely you are not aiming at arriving in the Frozen North for the coming Winter. Even with global warming I can tell you wouldn't like it up there, although I can see that from the steamy heat of Costa Rica it might seem kinda attractive.
Love from your stuck in the mud bro.
PS Keep the postings coming - I love to read about what I wouldn't have the nerve for!
