He spoke for us.

He picked on us - - - and we loved every minute of it!

"Scene" Along the Way


Climb in the bus with us, and watch through the windows as we pass through Costa Rica. You'll KNOW we are on the bus, 'cause you'll see "bus parts" in most of the photos.


Much of Costa Rica's "electric grid" is evident above ground - - -

Not to worry - - - these "head-on" collisions never did materialize.

Stop didn't always mean stop. Yield didn't always mean yield. Red often meant go. And yet - - - we didn't see any collisions.

We did get off the bus at this look-out point.

Size and shape.

You'll have that when you try to snap pictures through the windows of - - -

A swiftly moving bus!!!

Tell Me Why - - -


We had to paint a chain link fence blue.

Well, I still don't know, but I think it's a Costa Rica "thing." Check out all this OTHER blue:

Some of it metal,
Some not,

All of it blue,
Yes quite a lot!!!
