We know many who have paid $100 a person for a day in the rainforest. WE DID IT FOR FREE!!! So cool, and just one example of what is available to you when you are a nomadic family: travel slowly, live with the locals, and get to experience EVERY TOURIST ATTRACTION IMAGINABLE for free! We’ve had so far over a dozen such experiences. This exhibition was led by our neighbor Oscar who took us for a four-hour exhibition through rain forest, fields, and valleys. We went with my son’s new best friend Ever. I still can’t seem to write about Ever too much.
I just loved the boy too much; what he meant to my son, too much; how he made us feel like we were so there for him. And then, we left. And I’ve left part of my heart there in the farm village of La Lucha de la Tigra, Costa Rica. So, for now, he’s pictures of a day we spent with him. One day, and I think it’s coming soon, I will write more and more. Until then, just know that he is the coolest kid in this part of the Latin American world.
