Buenos Dias de Costa Rica.

The internet is kinda spotty here, so (as always) i don't wanna say much.

It hasn't been as relaxing as i expected. We have been doing really cool, but very tourist-y things: hikes to waterfalls, horseback riding on the beach, general sight-seeing. But we've also taken full advantage of the country's resources: comida typical, Imperial & Casique, and other....... more organic things.

i made an extensive Costa Rica playlist before we left. i started by gathering all my reggae and island-sounding songs (ukulele's and soft-plucked guitars), and it expanded to include anything i thought i would like to hear whilst layin' in a hammock. i still haven't found one yet, but i have enjoyed To Live's To Fly from my balcony.

Here's a sampling of some of the best that have popped up so far:

mp3: Israel Kamakawiwo'ole - Somewhere Over The Rainbow
mp3: Joe Purdy - Wash Away
mp3: Matt Powell - Manzanillo Shoals
mp3: Toots & The Maytals - Pressure Drop
mp3: Rodrigo y Gabriella - Tamacun

**in another ploy to get you to come back, i'm gonna post this before uploading the songs.

Way too many pictures have been taken as well. If i could upload in any sort of a timely fashion, i would. But i'll wait 'til i get a better connection (or develop some patience....)

Pura Vida.


  1. god, i'm so jealous. the office is stuffy, the coffee is bad, but the sun is shining - i just want to go out and play.

  2. ok, ok. your ploy was successful. now upload the tracks.
