Alone Again

The Kelly/Sima clan left at 5:30 am today in order to make their 12:30 flight out of San Jose. They made it to the airport in Alajuela in 2 hours and 50 minutes, almost beating Jim's record time of 2 hours and 19 minutes, which did NOT include a pit stop and a car wash. A warning to the casual reader: this trip SHOULD take approximately 4 hours. As Jim puts it, "John is one hell of a wheel man".

Jim's trip to San Jose on Friday afternoon, on Grey Line, took 5 hours because it included a stop in Canas, which to the uninitiated, is in the WRONG direction. I imagine this is the last time we will patronize Grey Line.

The first picture was taken after a horseback ride down to the river on our farm. It was Johnny's first real horseback ride and he was a trooper, as the horses has to walk down some pretty steep cliffs. We spotted some white face capuchin monkeys right near here on the river. I've been riding for 3 years since we first came to Costa Rica, and I was always afraid that my horse might fall down on these cliffs. Well, mine did fall down but he got right back up again and I didn't fall off, so I'm feeling pretty accomplished. Rene, Chrissy and Catie decided to sit this ride out, so they stayed at home.

Happy Easter! Today is the day that Jesus turns into the Easter bunny and hatches from an Easter Egg!
Happy Easter to you too! The Easter Bunny doesn't come to Costa Rica, so we went shopping instead. Kevin bought himself a cool looking grey shirt, Catie bought a Barbie doll. Thank goodness for Vitosi's and Chunches!
