My Upcoming American Dream: Finding the Exceptional Near Home
Here you'll see my last day in Costa Rica.
Up next in my blog: great photos from the Mid-Atlantic states and tiny bits from my book-in-progress, "Quest: In Search of the American Dream." Each person I interview defines the American Dream differently. Stay tuned and learn what your fellow Americans aspire to.
The beach at Manuel Antonio. White-faced monkeys and raccoons are a constant threat to swimmers' backpacks, if left unattended on the sand.
We took a jungle tour at night. Saw alligators' eyes gleaming in the beam of a flashlight, saw moths, lizards, a huge spider that could walk on water, and this frog. I can't recall now whether this is a gladiator frog or not. Does anybody know? Please comment.
Here I am, neat and tidy after a swim in the Pacific. My compadres are Marta and Milton, who are the parents of my son's girlfriend and who take good care of my son, who has emigrated to Costa Rica.
