Hello, everybody!

Happy to say I just returned from Costa Rica, the land of sun, greenery, renewable energy, and sloths. We split out trip between the sunny coastline and the lush mountainous environments of Monteverde, and while we didn’t spot any of the world’s favorite slow-moving xenarthans, our stay in the rainforest did produce run-ins with coati, agouti, capuchin monkeys, toucans, macaws, opossum, lizards, armadillos, scorpions, snakes, and just about any other animal you can think of.

A particular highlight of this trip was the tour of the coffee plantation at the Ecological Sanctuary in Santa Elena, where a local family — wonderful hosts, who were kind enough to have us stay at their place — is currently developing some truly amazing coffee with a self-sustaining, fair trade, organic setup. Pura vida!
