We love just about everything in Costa Rica... but not everything is perfect and rosy all the time. We try very hard not to have that arrogant North American attitude when we encounter what we feel is backward behaviour, but there are times we are tested beyond normal limits. Then we breathe and remember that 99% of the time, we live in sheer bliss... and we get on with the day.
After that little hiccup, we made our way to PriceSmart. Our guests called us when they arrived in the parking lot. We met them, had a bit of a chat and then they followed us home. We had a delightful evening, exchanging stories. They're both English, but lived in Australia and now in Saudi Arabia and they've done quite a bit of travelling. They're here for a month to travel around Costa Rica. We can't wait to hear what they think of Costa Rica when they're done touring.
Although our day started out a bit frustrating, it seems so long ago now... the rest of the day and evening made up for it in spades.
