Pura Vida!


Today we travel to Costa Rica. It’s a terribly long day starting at 3am. We caught a 5:55am flight out of PDX and had what seemed like an endless 5 hour layover in Houston. The kids did great amusing themselves throughout the day. Owen enjoyed his light summer reading of G. Orwell.

We were entertained by a fantastic light show over the Gulf of Mexico. Thankfully the lightning was “over there” versus “over here”, if ya know what I mean.


The two immigration guys that pulled the swing shift completely underwhelmed us (not as bad as Beijing or Moscow but very slow nonetheless). However, we’re completely blown away by our hotel. From the open air restaurant and lobby, to the fruity drinks they brought us at checkin, to the sounds of the ocean lapping up only 10 yards away … It’s heaven. Rose is keeping her eyes peeled for those monkeys so hopefully I’ll have some pics to post tomorrow.


No wifi here so I’m suffering a little withdrawal at this point but I’m sure the shakes will stop by morning. ☺

Regards, Donald.
