Flag of Costa Rica  ,
Saturday, July 26, 2008

 I stick out like a sore thumb in San Pedro, another suburb of San Jose.  I get stared at alot walking the parks and streets. I am way bigger than your average Costa Rican and I'm styling & profiling like Daddy Yankee.  The majority of folks are just so short, in heigth. I'm only 6' 1", but I tower above every midget waiting in line at the bus stop. I feel HUGE...LOL..... Wait,I see something cool, but gross. The hottie in front of me is searching for and popping zits &  squeezing blackheads from her boyfriends face. This goes on for at least 20 mintues. And I'm thinking, this is cool & weird that a chick could care for and deal with her BF's dermatalogical dilemna.  But good God, I could not do it for her if she was my GF. Especially, at the bus line. I think of asking her how much she would charge to do my back and ass when she gets through with him.

I have met a ton of expats who currently reside in the Greater San Jose area. Mainly older retirees and self made types who have gone bamboo. I see them come and go with younger women all the time. I talk at length with Sam, from Virginia. Sam is a 66 year old retired Civil Servant who has been living at my apartment complex for 3 years. He lives down here like Hugh Hefner on a blue collar budget. Solely, beacuse of the exchange value of the dollar giving him and us travellers more bang for the buck. Generally, things are way cheaper here than the States if you get outside the known tourist zones. I found a local bar/restaurante down the street today that sells  huge  plates of local food & chinese for no more than  $3.00 per meal !!!

Some random observations concerning Costa Rica thus far:   Toilets here suck raw ass.  They don't flush toilet paper down the commode. It is customary to throw it in the waste basket. I hate that shit ( No pun intended) I flush it down the toilet anyway. I have a private bathroom now, so I dont gag looking in the basket or force myself not to look away like at public restrooms.

 - Hot water here sucks my main vein. It can last for a few seconds of barely warm, to a few minutes, then lots of ice cold water. Lesson learned, Timing - take quick and efficient baths.

- The goverment run cell phone company is a monopoly. Still cant get a cell phone. I brought an unlocked phone. All I need is a SIM card. No way, Jose. Only for Costa Rican citizens and people who incorporate.

- When I speak spanish down here, Costa Ricans pick out my accent as Cuban or Puerto Rican. As in english, their are various accents and dialects which can help to determine your national origin.  I still fool some people by incorporating local slang, Mai. This helps me to get the nacional price. Big difference sometimes.

- Girls really love to dress sexy here with tight ass swinging pants. Even the chubby Deckers figure out a way to show that back off sensuosly. it's like a national past time. I am a great fan.

- I walk to the store in my hood to buy some groceries, as I am departing the store called Pali, who is coincidentally owned by WAL MART. I would have never known, except I saw the managers id badge.   I ask him about it.  He tells me Wal Mart has a 51% ownership stake. These fuckers are everywhere. Sam Walton was smarter than Karl Marx.   Anyways, I walk out the door and there is a vendor selling lottery tickets. He asks me in spanish and I tell him " no comprende " " americano" and I hear him mutter, "Fuck you , yankee "  as I walk laughing.
- I go to get a haircut, There is only one customer. I ask the lady about getting my top chopped. She tells me to wait and it will be no problema.  I wait 1 hour and 10 minutes. I am just about to jet when she says, " Muchacho estas listo? "  Like duh, I was born ready and been ready. She does a pretty good job and washes it with gel to top it off. I ask her how much . $4.00 I only have a $20.00 bill and she cant make change. This happens alot down here.  I dig  $3.50 out of my pocket in change. I tell her I''ll come back with the rest.   Shes like, No it's ok, "todo tranquilo""  HELL YEAH!!! I get another good deal after waiting so long
I work out again today and I am looking good and feeling good. I need to bust a move back to the beach this weekend. I got lazy this past weekend. I need to keep tanning. I am still good & brown.

I talk with two  hotties, Maria and Shirley, on the bus while heading back to the crib.  I end up talking  with them the whole way. I want to ask for their numbers but I find out one is 18 and the other 17. I wish I was a perve sometimes.
I take some more random pictures of weird colonial type statutes at the parks. I'm surprised to see so many prostitutes working the early shift.  I love how these chicks dress for success and wish that 'good girls" (GF material ) were as aggressive. Either way, its all good. eye candy every where you look in this Country. I love latinas. I'm going to start taking pictures of these chicks when I can, so I can show you guys what I mean.

I want to go check out a Hot club playing HIP HOP tonight near the University, but I'm wore out.  I feel guilty, missing a Saturday night in C.R.,( My 1st ) but I think its the wiset thing to do since I'm not feeling it.
I Suck big beans. Nevertheless, I gotta rest and save a few bucks for the next party. I have alot of time left on this trip.

That is all for now. Stay tuned for more & Film @ 11
