After the initial posting of yesterday's blog, I realized that some additions and corrections needed to be made. The changes were made after the first thirty readers had already read the blog. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Yesterday we got some good views of Arenal and hiked to the La Fortuna Waterfall. An incredible sight. The steep hike down and up from the valley floor cost me five pounds, maybe more. Kryss was like an olympic champion up and down the hill. After the climb it was cerveza time at one of the local restaurants. While we were enjoying a late lunch and beer, two water buffalo were being lead down the main street. Needless to say, this stopped traffic. Not a common site in La Fortuna. I took the restaurant owner's picture on one of the beasts and he bought us a round. Pura Vida!

We watched the Super Bowl with Spanish speaking broadcasters. Learned a few more words, [i]el passo incompleto, passo perfecto, completo.[i] Other than that it was pretty much greek. Kyrss picked the winning team and won our bet.

For those of you that know "flat Stanley", (google him if you don't know about him) he has made an appearance on our trip for one of our grand nieces. Every so often he will be seen in various places in our photo file. If you need him for your kids, grandkids, etc., feel free copy the pictures.

Tomorrow we are leaving for Panama. A 3.5 hour drive in the morning to San Jose and then a short flight to Panama City. We will be staying in Casco Viejo (the old section of Panama City) for about three days while we figure out where we want to go. Bocas del Toros is on the list but nothing else at this time. We are considering renting a car since the roads in Panama are much better than CR roads.

The pictures are of the La Fortuna Waterfall, Arenal Volcano (one from our patio the other from in town) and flat Stanley in the jungle.

Adios Costa Rica....Hola Panama!
