I had to take a selfie on the plane, to remember our N95 masks (and my homemade covers) for a time capsule. I used the prisma app to make it more arty.
We've arrived at our home-away-from-home: Dominical!

We made it.
We arrived a day late due to snow in Chicago. Needless to say, flying is stressful. It always was, but now, even more so. We're wearing our masks in Costa Rica just like at home. Except, it's a-heck-of-a-lot-hotter with them on. But, there's plenty of open space to run mask-free. The beaches in Dominical are never crowded. Sometimes, there's not another soul for miles of virgin sand. We need a four wheel drive just to get to our jungle cabana. So, it's not crowded up here either. It is crowded in some ways: flocks of late morning swallows traversing the sky, peeping; packs of high flying parrots squawking overhead, landing somewhere in a tasty tree; busy chestnut mandibled toucans, fiery-billed aracaris and oropendolas bouncing around branch and bush; hummingbirds and rainbow colored tanagers of every stripe, plying the flowers below; vultures, bugs and bats watching and waiting.
It's the Garden of Eden.
