Did you know an Iguana has two....!!!???

Picked up at 7:30 a.m. on Monday, February 4 by Doug Monge from Tierra Pacifica Vacations and the Welcome Center. 
Doug is the ultimate story teller, and during our day together, we learned...

  • pasture posts become living fences
  • oxen carts cause traffic jams
  • where to find coffee from a cooperative
  • bike paths transport horses, cows, pigs, turkeys
  • some history of Costa Rica
  • the location of restrooms that are "Sheri" approved
  • fires that clear the underbrush for the sugar cane harvest
  • iguanas are well-endowed for their harems
  • how to identify birds and animals from Doug's field guides
  • family-style lunch at Palo Verde beats all
  • many generations create beautiful pottery
  • where to find Triple Sec for cocktail hour
  • about the harvesting of turtle eggs  
  • speaking Spanish endears you with the locals
  • "old chickens make better soup"
