Day 21: On the road again! ¡Hasta pronto, Sámara!
Here we are saying goodbye to our next-door-neighbors at the apts. That dog is Manchita (Spotty), and she likes to chew on things, like Mom's beachmat, purse and Giovanni's fingers!
Mom: Well, after finding out that the bus a 1/2 hr away was full and had no room, we had to pay a taxi DOUBLE to take us to a city that was an hour away to catch THAT bus to San José! So, after a 2-hr wait in the "outside" bus terminal (playing UNO of course), we were on our way. And, just like the last one, the a/c worked for about 5 minutes, and the rest of the trip was broken. Hello, sweaty Siracusa's!
We arrived at Hotel Villa Dolce, was very nice & big. But, since it is winter here and we are not on the beach anymore, it was COLD! (Well, upper 60s, low 70s and rainy.) After a wonderful take-out pizza dinner, we cozied up in the room, fell asleep and dreamed of happily arriving home tomorrow! Dave will tell you I am always anxious to get home from any country I visit, but other than missing him MUCHíSIMO, I actually don't want to leave! Costa Rica definitely is PURA VIDA & maravilloso.
