This chair is more comfortable than it looks but less comfortable than just about any chair in our entire house back in the United States. I watched a very tiny ant working diligently to drag a living moth forty-times its size to an unknown location while sketching The Comfy Chair.
John was inside sitting at our kitchen table when the earthquake started.
This shot of our Alajuela vacation rental really captures the essence in terms of comfort. That chair was as close to luxury as we got during our time there.
Not sure what the history is behind this statue, but I’d like to take it home to use in a haunted house.
Not much to do today except get our bearings and look more closely at the details like this statue of a little boy in the backyard. It’s somewhat creepy and enchanting at the same time.
Our lovely backyard during a lovely rain in lovely Costa Rica. This blue shed is a necessary feature because without it, we could not dry our clothes during the rainy season. Look closely…you can see a lone pair of our socks hanging under the eave of the blue building, trying to dry during the afternoon rain shower.
Costa Rica is strange in terms of public transportation. The streets aren’t named and neither are the bus stops. In fact, the bus stops are nothing but a yellow line on the pavement in some places. The vacation rentals we stayed in had one of two problems: either the furniture was hard and uncomfortable, or it was soft and stinky from the damp, humid air. Another important thing to consider when booking a hotel in Alajuela or a vacation rental or whatever, is taxis. They’re expensive in Alajuela. From the city center to Tambor, where our vacation rental was located, it cost us about $15 to take a taxi one way. Atenas, Costa Rica was much more affordable in terms of taxis, but if you’re stuck in Alajuela, you may want to consider taking the bus (which doesn’t arrive or depart on a a schedule…).
