Below is a picture of a little Geo Tracker, driven by a friendly local kid who drove up on the same washed-out bridge we did. When we saw the bridge was washed out - Jim & I literally had no idea where to go. But young Costa-boy turns his tracker around, pulls up to the side of our car and says, 'Sigame este camino' which basically means - 'Follow me down this road.' We followed him through mud to the town of Monteverde. I don't know how else we would have found it. I love that boy!
Jim's smarter than me - and brought to life my appreciation for these windmills & their amazing ability to produce energy. Of course, this energy source is not a novel idea at this point - especially for us American's. But somehow, it was easier to find sincerity in the Costa Rican people. I believe they're producing energy to support themselves, vs. producing energy to prove their political stance, or to earn their 'Go Green' bumper sticker. Simple & Sweet. These people are resourceful.
Check out the grip I have on Jim's head! One of us likes taking self-portraits... one of us is CRAZY!
And then we head to The Beach; Manuel Antonio.
In another life – I’d be a surfer girl, and this would be my very typical Wednesday morning. In this life – I’m just a poser, and this picture lets me pretend.
