Pura Vida!

Sorry I have been so neglectful of you, dear blog. I have been busy. No, not that busy. But busy enough that I neglected you. 

So here is Costa Rica. 2008. A few snipets of my family’s trip to the jungle/rainforest/cloud forest/…

Vocano Arenal! The kid knows how to throw a tantrum... but thankfully, he has been safely venting only small amounts of lava for the past several years. We stayed only a few miles from him, but due to the overcast skies, this was the only day we were able to see him (and we were lucky for even this).

This was on one of the "best" roads in Costa Rica. It only took 2.5 hours to go 22 km. I loved this little village though, the colors made me happy 🙂
