To remember me, because I'll be back :)

Mostly I can't get on line, and I don't have the chance to look at what else is posted much right now.

Today my friends took me down a slow river in a raft through rain forest country. No pictures yet (but I saw and photographed 8 crocodiles)

The quote of the day, given by our guide who was a beautiful man, a 30 or so year old "Tico" which is what Costa Ricans call themselves, with very good English he had taught himself by learning 20 words a day:
"I hope I live long enough to see snow".

The rain forest is hard to show you. But this is a taste, and I took it from one of those many hundreds of meter long swinging bridges with see through mesh floors.



The howler monkeys are plentiful, but really know how to hide in the trees. Mostly you hear them, but here is a shot that sort of worked.



The country has a number of volcanos, this one is maybe the most famous one. It erupted in the 1980's and lots of people got killed and hurt. Now it is smoking at all time and at night crisp fiery lights are on it's slopes, or, a fine young Principessa can sit in it's environs and slurp a fancy drink.





and finally a bird that I swear to you is not illuminated from a light bulb inside the cut up fruit it has been served

1. Tico: "I hope I live long enough to see snow".

I love the volcano, with the girl and her drink!

3. Hi Mira!

Thanks for the wonderful vacation pics. I must get to Costa Rica! I'm anxiously awaiting the crocodile pictures.

I wonder what that bird is?

Only a few more days and I am off the hook for contest hosting.
