Blessed are they who go round in circles for they shall be known as big wheels

After getting kicked out of Panama, we drove in a big circle around Costa Rica.

The first night, we stayed in the first decent hotel we found just before Ciudad Neily. The next day, we drove to San Isidro del General (there seems to be a zillion San Isidros in Costa Rica) where we met Roberto Hernandez (more on him and Mary later), where we stayed for a few days; then to San José, the capital, to visit my friend Lars who is now living here; then to the lowland rain forest Puerto Viejo de Sarapiquí where we stayed at the Selva Verde Lodge with flocks of birders; then to the mountains in La Fortuna near Arenal Volcano, where I did a bunch of work and we met some neat people at the neat little hotel we stayed in (Lavas del Arenal); then to Liberia in hot and dry Guanacaste province for a few days while I finished yet another project; and then back to San Isidro to meet up with Roberto and recuperate while enjoying the mountains and agricultural sights and beaches of central Costa Rica. Next is either going to Corcovado National Park in the Osa Peninsula or to Providencia where Ying and Eric Allen of Wild Things in the Yukon have a place and help run a school.

Here are a few pics to whet your appetite for forthcoming postings.
