Oxcarts, hand-carved wood products, and leather goods....

We should buy one of the oxcarts for Arlo , don't cha think?

Went to Sarchi and shopped for about two hours at two of my favorite shops.

On our way into the town, Jeremy pulled over to the side of the road to let the car that was tailgating us pass by. The car went up the road, turned and came back in our direction, turned again, passed and was never seen again. This car with three men had tailgated us all the way from the bank in Grecia...

Thank you Jeremy for paying attention and for  being aware of the MO that most of the thieves in Costa Rica use...

Although CR is one of the safest countries in Latin America, this is one scam that remains top on the criminals list...Placing a nail under or slashing your tire when your car is parked. When you pull away from the store, they'll offer to help you change your tire and instead rob you of all your belongings, and take your money....Jerry watched the parking lot while we shopped to be sure no one came to slash ours.....

I say all this to emphasis why it's important to have people escort you in 3rd world countries....With hard economic times, it will be happening even in America....

Be careful Amigos!
