Costa Rican Frogger

Travelling here has been quite a challenge. So far we have travelled by taxi, personal car, bus, and by foot. Our primary means of travel is by foot to get to school, and to our local grocery store. To get any farther away we go by bus or taxi. The interesting thing comes into play when you travel by foot as it's pedestrian beware! Cars have the right-of-way unless you are at a traffic light. Even then you really have to be careful that they are following the traffic laws and stopping. Usually pretty good. Anyway - someone who had been here for awhile said she feels like she is playing Costa Rican Frogger. Keeping that in mind, the biggest goal when crossing the street is to NOT become the squished frog!

Totally identifying fellow Frogger. Every day multiple times, the only intersection between my apartment and the church office. But surprising, elephants cross without even having to stop! Yes, it happened today. Love you! Thanks for your encouraging emails, especially on those days where I might have cracked.
