San Jose

Well, the guidebooks aren´t totally right about San Jose. It´s true that there isn´t much to see here, and not that many tourists. People are mainly stopping off here en route to other parts of the country. However, there is quite a bit to enjoy too, and we´ve been relaxing and recovering from the flight nicely by the pool. The hostel is great and a real oasis in the chaos of the city. Rachel's new camera is fun for underwater shots!
Today I had my first Gallo Pinto breakfast, consisting of Gallo Pinto (rice and beans), scrambled egg, cheese, tortillas and fried plantain. Nothing could be more authentically Costa Rican, and I certainly enjoyed it! Food is proving pretty good in general so far and we even found a vegetarian soda, a typical Costa Rican diner!
