Congratulations on completing the TAT! I look forward to reading your thread.

farrell ceasar,

Eighteen days in Flamingo sounds awesome, even with seven cats to care for. Costa Rica is certainly a popular real estate investment choice for wealthy Americans and Europeans. I passed Mel Gibson's estate wile riding on the beach north of Samara.

Interesting point that the new bridge is a gift from China. China seems to be investing heavily in conspicuous infrastructure improvement projects throughout Latin America, Africa, and Southeast Asia.

While riding through a remote tribal area of Peru last year I encountered the bridge below, complete with a plaque indicating it is a "gift" from China. Oddly, to reach the bridge from either direction requires traveling hundreds of kilometers on a one lane dirt track.

Best to All,
