Jose was so excited to see a Costa Rican ox cart. Jose asked the oxes, “In your journey up the mountain, did you come across a crystal skull?” No, we have been to busy pulling this cart but ask the coffee beans. They don’t do anything but soak up water and sun.

We have hit the jackpot, when Miguel Angel was recommended as the driver to take us around Costa Rica. Not only is he taking us safely up, down and around winding narrow roads in thick fog or heavy rains, but he is also a wealth of information. He has adopted me, Jose the travel bear, [...]

Butterflies, butterflies, butterflies everywhere. I have never so many butterflies in one place. I had one come and land on my lap, and I was hoping that this orange buddy could help us on our quest to find the crystal skull. We chatted for a while, and I learned many things. For example, in Spanish, [...]
