Libby, Ani, and I took the bus to Zarcero to see the fantastical shaped bushes in the central park and spend the night before heading on to La Fortuna. Unfortunately, the one hotel in town (Zarcero not being a happening vacation spot) had no room, so we were directed to Gladys' house. Although I thought that maybe this was going to be a quaint B&B type of situation, it was actually a concrete utility shed that was, in fact, attached to Gladys' house. A damp, drafty concrete utility shed, with various bugs nesting on the ceiling, someone else's toothbrush on the sink, and a bare hanging lightbulb to complete the "Turkish prison" decor.
Ani ran around the Alice in Wonderland bushes, we ate dinner and called home, and went reluctantly back to our cell, where we were warmly greeted by the bugs that would bite us all night.
In the morning, we packed up, waved goodbye to the abandoned toothbrush, and caught the early bus in search of friendlier accomodations.
