Updates from The Road

In Costa Rica [2005]

Another message is stuck on my blackberry, to be posted later... but for now we found an internet cafe after eating at a vegetarian restaurant(!) in San Jose. The city reminds me of Campo Grande in Brazil - kinda dirty, kinda run down, very poor, kinda polluted, but beautiful parks and public monuments.

Tomorrow we head for Tortuguero - a 2-1/2 hour drive through the jungle (pickup at 6am), then a 3-1/2 hour boat ride up to where we will be staying, and another 2 hour boat tour plus a night walk where hopefully we will be able to see green turtle babies going swimming for the first time!!!
