Pura Vida!

Hola, mi amigos! Esta un buen dia en el estado del Tennessee!

Aqui esta la photographias de la vacacion en Costa Rica.

OK, so my Espanol is pretty bad. But the Costa Rica trip was pretty danged wonderful. We provided lots of amusement for the wooly monkeys in Manuel Antonio, as you can see.

Sloths were all over the place, but not until you saw your first one. I looked for two hours before the first sighting. Once I learned to recognize the signs of habitation in a tree they lived in, I could pick them out fairly easily, even riding down the road.

The nicest place we stayed, we had to kayak down the Rios Pacuare to reach. More on this one later.

Here we learned the meaning of "pura vida" which translates to "pure life"...but it is much more than that. It is the Costa Rican way of life. It is also how they say hello, good bye, whassup, thanks, uh-huh, and take care.

This is the Parque de Cultura in San Jose. They seem to love George Bush there. Why don't you copy the nice picture to your own computer and blow it up so you can read the wonderful things they say about him?
