Something to Ponder....

"Own only what you can carry with you! Know language, know countries, know poeple, let your memory be your travel bag"!

Alexander Solzhenitsyn


June 20: Caught the 3:30 bus to Tamarindo from Alfaro...the ride ended up taking us 7 hours b/c the driver kept stopping along the way to pick people up(so he could pocket the $). Incredible lightning show on the way though... So, by the time we got there, we felt like nothing more than eating/sleeping.

June 21:Woke up early, watched a movie(the exact reason we never get a room w/TV)...went to the beach for a bit, but then decided we would take advantage of the pool where we were staying...met some Swiss guys...decided to do a little shopping, but it started to rain, so we decided to find shelter at a little bar to watch an amazing sunset(see pics) and had a drink with David(from FL)...then, at dinner the lady who took our order was apprised of the fact that we don't eat meat; yet, decided not to tell us the frijoles were mixed w/beef...no apologies, in fact, she was a little put out that she had to bring us something else...so, vegetarians, beware of Copa Cabana! Anyway, met the Swiss guys and on to a few diff bars...here's where it gets exciting...tons of cops show up with a huge bus and fill it full of anyone w/out a passport(mostly illegal Nicaraguans). This was a definite wake-up call for me b/c I usually don't carry my passport...and just happen to have it with me. After all the drama, we brought some people back with us and ended up swimming until dawn.

June 22: Nothing very exciting...bus back to San Jose...tonight, we began the mission to convert Chale into a vegetarian by making him the best veggie soup/salad he's ever had!

in the words of Ja RUle

"Right now, I'm pro-leave beef alone. Big shout-out to all the vegetarians who don't want beef!" (Us Weekly)
