“Bienvenidos a Costa Rica!”
Friday, November 07, 2008
Well, we have arrived in San Jose, Costa Rica, Centroamerica. .
We were picked up at Juan Santamaria International airport. and taken by our driver, Willy, to the Cristina Apartotel. We settled in and had dinner delivered from Los Olivos, the Italian restaurant next door. La & I are, if not delighted then very satisfied with our experience as it has unfolded. Any glitches that we have encountered has been immediately been addressed. So far, so good.
From what little we have seen thus far, San Jose looks quite pleasant and acceptably appointed with both American chains as well as local places, from large establishments to little Mama/Papa places. Greenery and pleasant weather abounding. .
It appears that we missed the rainy season by a hair; the first week is supposed to be relatively clear with the sky blue and the sun smiling.
Marching ahead fearlessly (If to a different drummer) . . .
