John and I are in SÃ¡mara, which is on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. ItÂ´s about 90 degrees (F) in the shade around here, and the sun is fierce. SÃ¡mara is on a beach, so we do have some nice water and waves and bikini-wearing scenery to enjoy. Also, the cervezas are not too expensive, though for a small rural town in a Central American country, SÃ¡mara has big tourist prices.
We will be here untilÂ the 10th, and are studying Spanish all week at the local Interacultura school for language study. It is also on the beach. I expect we will learn much, indeed.
