Return from Vacation II: Costa Rica

 Thanks for your patience while I was away (again).  Where were we?

Costa Rica!  Land of green vegetation and agriculture


Cloud Forests and Coffee (and sloths!):

And just stunning views:

We had a wonderful time.  And I am excited to share it with you.


  1. Did you drink coke from a plastic bag and a straw? That was my brother's experience when he spent a month down there many years ago.

    1. Ed, I did not. I did have a what we would call "Mexican Coke" with cane sugar instead of corn syrup. You can certainly taste the difference.

    Wow - lookit all the green ! Beautiful.

    Ed, that method of serving soft drinks is common along the Mexican side of U.S. common border. Not sure if its to cash in the aluminam can value or is it for less public trash ?

    Mexican bottled Coca-Cola tastes a lot more like the original product of my youth.

    1. It was amazingly green - rather depressing to return to the Autumnal/Winter bound US.

      My guess on the bag/straw is that the bottle/can has cash value, plus one does not waste a glass.

      The Mexican Coke is superior to American Coke. I seldom drink them, but it was a treat.

  3. That's great TB, I see you had a fabulous time! :)

    1. It was so beautiful and such great fun Rain. We went ziplining over the cloud forest, which I think was my favorite, along with the coffee plantation and seeing the sloths.
