Saturday, September 8, 2007

It has been an eventful few days, but the stress of preparation melted
away as soon as we were on the plane.  Everything we read about
about rain and scary traffic was true, but I didn't really appreciate
this fact until we were sitting in the back of a taxi, careening
through the insanely crowded streets of Alajuela in the midst of a
torrential downpour.  Picture a demolition derby in a hurricane,
all while the calmest taxi driver you've ever met idly chats to you
from
the front seat.  Diego delivered us safely to our hostel.  It
only took 2 hours to go 20 kilometers.  That's right, we're metric
now.  We had Thai food for dinner.  Go figure.
