Costa Rica: Day 1

Kyra and I finally had a honeymoon! We went to Costa Rica about a month ago, for a whole week. We visits the Arenal volcano, and stayed at the nearby lodge, in the middle of a rainforest. For the next few days, I'm going to be posting my journal entries from our trip.

Aug 9, 2014 - Sabado

5:55 am flight to Atlanta. We took a taxi to the airport. There we saw one of my former coworkers and his family. The flight was ordinary. We had little time in Atlanta since I change it to a short connection, thinking it was better. In the end, it was.

We arrived in San Jose in the afternoon, then took a short ride to the hotel, Grano de Oro (grain of gold). It is a gorgeous hotel. It used to be a mansion, refurbished into a hotel.

We at at a small, local restaurant: anchovy pizza. It was what Kyra wanted. But it was good.

We napped after lunch. It rained while we were laying down. It was so beautiful, it brought tears to my eyes. I awoke to the sound of people singing. There is a church nearby the hotel, and mass was ongoing. Kyra woke and we tried to find the church (iglesia), without luck.

Instead we went to the jacuzzi in the hotel. While there, it started to rain again. It felt great: warm water with cool raindrops.

We had dinner at the hotel restaurant, one of the best in Costa Rica. Excellent food. Such a beautiful hotel!
