Later tonight Fish, a Costan Rican guy I had met about a month ago, came over and we went out for dinner and then sat on my porch and looked at the stars and talked. It was unbelievable how on the same page we were as far as our life philosophies, our fascination with animals, and our love for conservation of the environment. It was exhilarating to be conversing on such a deep level in Spanish and to be aware as I listened, fascinated by his words, that we were two beings of such radically different backgrounds who chanced to meet in a small mountain town but were, in essence, doing what mighty government delegates could not do: breaching the barriers of ethnicity and nationality and connect simply as two human beings.
