Vacation

Now that you all have that awful Go-Gos song in your head...

I decided to stop somewhere warm on my way north and Costa Rica was the winner. Hiking, fishing, ziplining, and just relaxing in the sun has been great and is serving as a mild distraction from the heartbreak of leaving Salta.  I am still dealing with separation anxiety, so that is as much as I will say about Argentina right now.

Back to Costa Rica... I am on the Pacific Coast in a town called Quepos which is just outside Manuel Antonio National Park. The very welcoming "locals" include monkeys, sloths, iguanas, frogs, crocodiles, caymans, turtles, etc. (and the people are fantastic too).

Along with the sunshine and wildlife, I've been thoroughly enjoying all the fresh seafood and tropical fruit.  The mangoes and pineapple are just incredible.  While I have been spoiled by great beef and red wine in Argentina, and fresh seafood and fruit in Costa Rica, nothing will be quite as delicious as Georgy family lunch next weekend. That little woman can cook.  Too bad that talent didn't quite trickle down to me.

Sorry for the short post but to make up for it, here are some fun photos....





















See you all soon!
