This is the first blue sky I’ve seen in maybe 10 days. Come to think of it, Isla Grande, the little island I was on for 3 days, was battered by a tropical storm. Not strong enough to knock down buildings, but everything got knocked around a bit. The first night I was here, it started pouring when I was walking back to the hotel and I ducked under the porch of a restaurant with three young guys. Did I want ganja? Nope. At least in Costa Rica, there’s real low grade Columbian weed g,oing around. I’m staying at Hotel Las Olas, really nice, polished wooden floors, a breeze off the water, killer breakfasts included, good wi-fi. Owned by Israelis.
Had dinner last night at El Refugio, dimly lit entrance, you’d never know it was there without being told, the place was packed, good vibes, 100% gringo, two guitar players, ’60s music, good food. I’m going out later today to see if I can get a small boat to take me to outer islands. There’s a lot to do around here.
