THIS ENTRY IS DEDICATED TO DAD AND TONI....No matter how old we get, how far away we go, or how much trouble we get in to...they somehow still manage to take care....WE LOVE YOU AND CAN'T THANK YOU ENOUGH FOR YOUR HELP!

(Kiley) Yes. I have officially had my first bad costa experience. I've heard the stories...and laughed from a safe distance...but no more...and now have officially joined the ranks with the many gringos that get taken in costa. Long story short: met a couple diff people...at a couple diff places....for a couple drinks...until finally end up at Pueblo where we are literally almost in the cab when this little shit(whom I believe I could've taken under diff circumstances ;)..grabs my purse...I was holding it so tight that he actually had to pinch me to take it...so, Matty and I chase after him...to no avail(we still had enough wits about us to know that following a tico down a dark alley at 2:30 was def. not a good idea)..am surprisingly at peace with the situation, though...aside from the obvious inconvenience(digital, credit, debit, passport, etc)...the glass is always half full in our world; therefore, we are happy to reside in the fact that it was the purse and not me!
