My Costa Rican Birthday

     Today, I celebrated my birthday in  Puerto Viejo de Talamanca, Costa Rica.  How lucky am I? 
     I flew into San Juan yesterday afternoon and after meeting up with my travel group for an introductory meeting, a delicious meal and a good night's sleep, we left this morning for a 5 and a half hour bus ride to get here.  The drive was fantastic.  Twisty, turny, through thick jungle, a cloud forest and finally along the Carribbean Ocean coastline, we arrrived to wonderful accomodations, great weather and our own hammocks on our private decks!  Totally worth the trip here already, and this is only the first day!!
    After a relaxing afternoon of lounging in the hammock and walking along the beach,  our travel group went out for supper and they surprised me with a delicious chocolate cheesecake/birthday cake after the meal.  I even got a cuba libra and a tequila shot bought for me afterward.  So all in all, I have certainly had a memorable day.

Gotta rest.  Gettin' old!
A lovely walk along the Carribbean shore
 


 

 
Birthday chocolate cheesecake, anyone?
      I am really looking forward to seeing what else is out there.  This is gonna be a fantastic adventure, maybe the greatest one, yet (and that is saying something!!)
