Flag of Costa Rica  , Province of Limon,
Sunday, March 18, 2012

First impression from Costa Rica, everything seems to be a little more formal and polite. As expected, lots of tourists, more expensive, and what's a pity, everyone speaks to you in english. Took us some time to find a room, lot's of places were full, others damp and dark, but finally we found a beautiful place, a little more expensive but definitely worth the price (25$ per person, that looks actually cheap now I write it here), a big nice private room, balcony with hammocks (there are a lot of hammocks in Latin America in general I think, here we even found a hostel which offers hammocks to sleep, looks quite funny to see dozens of hammocks hanging below a roof, reminded me of bats hanging next to each other while sleeping), toilets and showers are shared which is mostly the case so far, and the best: there is a pool! No actually even nicer is that it is located in a tropical garden, very quiet compared to the last two weeks in Panama, went to bed early last night, slept 10 hours and woke up with the birds this morning :-)
But... it's raining again! Rain since two weeks on the Caribbean coast and although it somehow doesn't annoy me much (guess I got used to that it's raining wherever I go), we will soon move over to the Pacific coast, everyone says the weather is better and more stable over there.
Anyways, I feel very well, think I never felt so relaxed in my life before, nothing bothers me, not the rain, not the bruises from surfing I have all over my body, not snoring people in the dormitories, not the really long waiting for food in restaurants and not even (those who know me know what this means ;-)) the dirty dishes in the shared kitchens which are usually available in the hostels I stay...
Everyone who told me before was right, thank you for encouraging me to do so, travelling really does me well!

You are welcome! (I consider myself to encourage everyone to travel...). And I was sure I would do you well. Above all it brings openess to the new and unknown, more understanding of people and tolerance (including for dirty dishes...) and more selfconfidence regarding how we react to the new and unknown... Enjoy it!
