I'm, back, and I must say it was fabulous! I made some great new friends in Costa Rica,
Iggy, can't live without him in the back yard:

Maybe a howler, certainly a monkey:

On the back patio, a toad and crab:


My familia (sorry for the Spanish, hard to drop:))

Where we stayed, and it was fabulous, but in bankruptcy, so water was iffy and I am still itchy from bug bites. But hey, lots of people sleeping in tents!

On Tortuga island,will never go again, too many tourists! What a bad hair day! (Who cares?)

What a beautiful country!

Oh I forgot! On the bridge over the Teracoles river! Mwuhahaha.

And I forgot these babies, maybe spider monkeys? This was in Manual San Antonio.

And Lobo, who we previously called sh*t, because that is what the caretaker said when we asked his name. Last time I visited Costa Rica I felt sorry for all the dogs that lived out side and ate from the ocean. This time I wondered if perhaps they might have a leg up on us. They bowed at greeting, they never begged, they were gentle beyond belief. At one point I said to Cara, be careful, he is showing teeth, and she said, mom, he is just showing how clean his teeth are. And ****, I think she was right. Learning about other cultures is so fun.
His owner, Hector the guard's house:

Volcano Arenal:

Coatimundi:


The Bumpasses are home from boarding and sleeping at my feet. They don't seem mad, only tired. We were in such a remote spot I did not see a newspaper for a week. We watched the Hawks in Spanish (Reeky Stainzy) and getting away from American politics was fab. No one wanted to talk about it down there, fabulous culture.

Yay, I was one of those dumbells with shorts on at Ohare, the taxi mavens didn't feel too sorry for me. Then we spent another night with the kids, hey, we bought the trip! I felt kinda guilty, DD's bed is so comfortabale. Oh wait, I bought it! :)

Loved looking at your pics, my husband and I went there 18 months ago and it's our best vacation ever. We stayed up in the cloud forest near arenal, and then flew down to Manuel Antonio ~ did you do the canopy tour? We did and it was amazing!!
