 Wake up early to catch the free daily breakfast at the Hotel Ccasa Del Mar and then decide to sleep a few more hours before I formulate some plans for the rest of the day.
 I re-awake at 12:30 pm and its raining. Oh well, typical rainy season weather , hit and miss. So, I take advatage of the down time by taking care of personal business and the usual internet maintanence. I go to a club called "las Olas" the waves on Friday night and it is rockin pretty good with a wide variety of ladies.

I'm talking to some guy from San Jose who is here on vacation also. I notice this  young tica lady staring and smiling at me. So, I play hard to get ( not really) I hated to be rude to the dude from San Jose. However, she asks me for a light and thanks then tells me her name. We ended up making out and talking for awhile before it got late and her ex boyfriend and son showed up and started talking some crap. I'm not from around here and  I hed back to my room. Whatever, I think she wanted me to make out with her so, it would instill some jealously with her ex or something. She was at best a low level kisser, not a big loss.
 I did mange to whoop some costa Rican ass on the FusBall table before I left that night. I hate the rules here and the tables are very third world standards. They count all the shots. Off the wall, in by mistake, what ever. At home, we play with a strict "purist style' The ball must be goaled with skill shots not pot luck. But, when in Rome... I still reign, either way.

Over the last two days, I have met peeps from all over the world. Mainly, the US, Canadians and Swiss, but also Germany, Holland, and of course many  Costa Ricans because I am a native spanish speaker. Tu sabes?

 Its cool how alot of travelers bond and exchange salutations, ideas, tips, info and good times at the beach, hotel/hostels, clubs and restaurants. I love to talk to fellow travellers as I am non biased, but I truly like talking to the locals the best. As this gives me another dimension in cultural differences and similarities. I am amazed how welcome overall by the Costa Rican people. I love this freakin' place inspite of it being the most expensive place to travel in Central or most of South America. It's still a bargain compared to the States.

Nice, the blog has started
Good to see you got the blog off and running, Costa Rica looks and sounds aswesome. Ya, it's amazing how much time it takes to update your blog. I mean, I guess it wouldn't be tough to say 'I went here, and saw this and here are some pics' but if you want to get in depth and supply detail and humor it takes a lot of time and once you get behind it's tough to catch up. The worst part is, while you are updating your blog, in the back of your mind you are always thinking you could be doing something much more worthwhile or much more fun ie drinking, sight seeing, hanging out with people from the hostel, meeting locals etc. It sucks to think that you may be missing out on life experiences to tell others about past life experiences. Good work though, the first one is the toughest. Shawn

I agree 100%
Hey Shawn,

Thanks for your comment ! I appreciate the proverbial words of wisdom. You're right, it is easy to get off track with the various sights, sounds, almost constant partying opportunities available while finding the right balance and discipline to document the journey with vivid and humorous details. I am backed up already on the journal entries, updates and transfers to blog. So much to do, so little time. You know the drill.
Thanks again for the advice and insight. UR2Cool, amigo
