We've been in Costa Rica for the past week with my parents. What a great week! Met some Couchsurfers, went to hear the symphony at the Teatro Nacional. Saw a live volcano, swam in hot springs, just generally had fun (even though I got sick for a bit. I think after these months in ever-so-hot Panama, I am not used to anything cooler.)
Tomorrow morning, my parents fly back to Atlanta and we hop on the bus to head to Puerto Viejo and Manzanillo. A couple day stop to break up the 8 hour trip between here and Bocas.
When we get back, Lauren, a Couchsurfer we met in Atlanta, and two or three friends arrive to stay for a bit. Can't wait!
But for now, I'm exhausted and must get to sleep. I probably won't have internet access again until we get back from this trip, but will post more then.
ps... A woman contact me through Couchsurfing. She's doing a series of articles for the Guardian online. There's a bit on our CS experiences in it.
