Last night at the Soda our new friend mentioned that there was going to be a cattle sale at the stock yard this morning. As we left La Fortuna we were almost ran into by a cow running down the road. We figure she was actually, not figuratively, running for her life. That was probably the safest part of our trip. The road between La Fortuna and Monteverde is comparable to a trip across moon rocks. In places you drive in and out of the potholes with the shoulders cut away to nothing on both sides. Your dad did great.
We are now in Monteverde. Our coffee/cocoa/sugar cane tour was an exercise in indulgence. Since it is off season there were only four of us on the tour. We definitely consumed the product equivalent of a full sized tour. Cocoa right out of the bean--amazing. They cautioned it might cause diarrhea, but so far so good!
Settled in for the night as the sun sets over the cloud forest.
Psalm 145:5 They speak of the glorious splendour of your majesty— and I will meditate on your wonderful works.
You are always in my prayers. Love Mom.
