I'm not sure how many parts this Costa Rica blogging will take. Since I wasn't there, I'm a little vague on the details. The boys left here just after midnight on Friday, March 9, and arrived in San Jose, Costa Rica at 9am Saturday morning (there is only a one hour time difference).
Thalita and her dad, Randall, met them at the airport. It's a good thing they did too! The rental car company lost Jim's reservation. It took Randall and a long conversation in Spanish to straighten it all out. On their way back to Parrita, they stopped at a "soda stand" for lunch. Here a photo taken by Randall at the soda.
Here is another picture (with Randall in it) of the kids on a bridge over a river.
Hey, Chris! Whatcha looking at?
42 alligators!??... like I said, it's a whole different world...
Thalita's parents own a restaurant and hotel in Parrita. Here is the front of the restaurant.
Jim tells me that the restaurant is completely open one side. There are two sides... a take-out side:
And a sit-down side... This place looks wonderful, and Jim and Chris say the food is GREAT!
One more CUTE photo to share today :oD
