My Short tour of Costa Rica

Posted by on Feb 2, 2010 in Costa Rica, Mexico & Central America, Motorcycle Vagabonding | Comments Off on My Short tour of Costa Rica

January 18-19, 2010 Costa Rica is so Americanized they’ll accept US Dollars or Colones. $1 = ~550 colones It was some strange math to wrap my brain around. <> The room at Playas del Coco was clean, inexpensive ($20/night) and beachfront, and since i was still thinking I had plenty fo time to get to Panama, I decided t stay another day. I was also trying to get in touch with Dr. Monica in Liberia, as well as a couple I met in line at the Costa Rica border–an American couple that operate a tropical fish farm in Costa Rica who’d given me their phone # and invited me for a visit. It sounded like a great thing to do, and I knew they were somewhere close. While sitting on the porch waking up, JP and I visited with...

On to Costa Rica

Posted by on Jan 28, 2010 in Costa Rica, Mexico & Central America, Motorcycle Vagabonding | Comments Off on On to Costa Rica

January 15, 2009 Welcome to Gringo Costa Rica I left Granada early, as usual, and figured it would take me about two hours to get to the border. Leaving Granada Flat. Hot. Agricultural. the wind started to pick up. And now it was a steady force to be reckoned with… I passed swanky Nicarauga…the whole area “felt” rich…rich grassland, rich ranches, etc. I had not seen too much “rich” in the countryside of anywhere in Nicaragua. <> I filled up my gas tank with my last colones and rolled to the border. After dodging a bunch of “helpers” and paying a $1 “exit fee”, I now needed to get into this line… was it a line? Not so much. Migracion: oofa. That was going to take some time. So I got OUT of line, and decided to exit the...

Santa Monica

Posted by on Jan 18, 2010 in Adventure for the CURE, Costa Rica, Mexico & Central America, Motorcycle Vagabonding | 4 comments

January 18, 2010 I’m in Liberia, Costa Rica right now. Sorry to confuse people with my chronology; Today I did a television interview at the Santa Monica mammography¬† center. It should be aired tomorrow (1/19/09) on the Noontime news… Dr. Monica is truly a saint. She is the first woman to graduate from the medical school here in San Jose, Costa Rica. The men running the mammography lab in the local hospital were prejudiced against her as a woman, and would not teach her anything, so she paid for private training in the United States. She recognized a need among the women here, and makes things happen for women here, skirting the edges of the system, getting women the treatment they need, once diagnosed, rather than making them wait for the system to process them in its absurdly slow...
