Costa Rica

Monteverde, Costa Rica, 2008

Our guide, Alberto, took this photo. He tried his best and look, his horse is in focus. We trotted all around the trails overlooking coffee bushes, trees with toucans flitting through them, tiny dogs darting around fields where Brahmin cattle grazed.  I even saw a motmot. We rode for 3 or 4 hours and wow, that really hurt later. That was a fun trip spent driving around looking at the countryside, shopping for dinner at supermarkets, visiting butterfly gardens and serpentariums. We still try to make batidos for breakfast in warm weather.
