This is ol' me on zip line number one in the Arenal Cloud Forest. There were a total of seven lines on the descent. Each got a bit longer. I must say the first was the most difficult ... After that there literally was "NO turning back", and it was "ALL downhill" from there!
Have you ever driven in Costa Rica? Believe me when I say that this was probably the safest mode of transportation in the country. Driving the Costa Rican highways, especially in and around San Jose was crazy. Or, maybe I have just lived in the country too long. Now, I can actually understand why we learn, at an early age, to form lines and wait our turn.
Day one and day seven were spent getting to and from airports and traveling. Days two through six were overwhelmingly beautiful and filled with warmhearted and friendly Ticos!
I will post a few more photos in another blog, but right now I'm neck deep in reentry tasks. Mostly trying to catch up on hugs and kisses from an old dog named Maggie May, who will not let us out of her sight and wants to make sure that we are really back!!!
Really love to travel, always love to get home!
