Flag of Costa Rica  , Province of Limon,
Monday, March 3, 2014

I went for my normal bike ride this morning. Since it was Monday, the roads were not that busy which was a good thing. It's amazing how narrow the roads are here. I guess when they paved the roads they must have had a strict budget. Joanne and I joked that it was not in their budget to have the roads expanded a little wider... which would have been better for everyone.. esp. the walkers and bike riders. As you are riding your bike, there is not really any room for you and the cars.. esp. when two cars are coming at you from different directions.
During my bike ride, I also came across two snakes on the side of the road that had been hit. It's too bad that the snakes got hit by a car.
Snakes have a very bad reputation in Costa Rica. People are killing them all the time. There is a big myth in Costa Rica that many people believe (which is not true). It is written in books though so many people actually believe it. The myth is that a snake can hypnotize pregnant women. Once the woman is hypnotized, the snakes drinks all the milk from the breasts so that the newborn baby will have none. That is a big reason why people kill snakes. It is strange what myths people will believe in.
During my bike ride, I also noticed tons of lots for sales. There is no shortage of land for sale here.
The beach in Manzanillo is very beautiful. It was not too busy so that was great. I just walked around the beach a bit and then decided to start my bike ride back to the cottage.
Back at the cottage, I rested a bit and then went to the grocery store with Joanne to get some food for breakfast. Joanne made me an excellent breakfast this morning.
I decided to get my hair shaved today. I mentioned (think it was Jaco) that I was planning to get my hair cut before but did not know I would actually do it. Well, today I actually did it. I am no longer a slave to my hair. I won't need to dye it anymore. It feels great by the way!!!
We are currently at the Veggie Restaurant working on our blog and checking out our e-mail.
It is currently 2:40 pm so I will close for now... :)
Once we returned to the cottage, we rested a bit.
Since today was my last day to have the bike, I decided to go for one last bike ride. I just went for a short one before I returned it back to the shop.
At the cottage, Joanne and I picked some Star Fruit from the tree in our cottage rental yard. Joanne makes a tasty juice with it. She says it is good for us. :)
We are currently at the Veggie Restaurant using the free internet once again. Next time, I would like to make sure our rental place has internet. It would be much more convenient than having to come to this restaurant and sit in the dark.
Will close again for tonight.. It is currently 5:35 pm... Adios... :)
