next jeff took us farther down the road a piece to a neighborhood that was once where all the

american workers for the banana plantations used to live.

Sorry dewd, but I will wear my Buccaneers (with two c's) shirts until they fall apart... which is already happening :) Actually I really like the San Diego t-shirt that you gave me, in fact it has become my favorite shirt and I wear it all the time. Thanks again for both of them!

Ari, is that in Indonesia you call them jambu or in Australia. In Brazil they are called Jambo.

This has become quite a photo journey Paul. It takes a lot of work to post and label all these photos. Thanks. The Bali house is a special place to my wife Raquel and I as we got married there at the dining room table in the middle of a rain storm. Jeff was one of the witnesses. It was an enjoyable trip.

In Indonesia, Don.

Paul, be careful... some of them can be quite sour. But the big dark red ones are the BEST!!

some empanadas for the drive. 1 of them ended up in my back-pack

& the drug-sniffing dogs at the airport went nuts over it.

jes squeezed my leg REALLY hard whenever we hit a bump.

there were ALOT of bumps.

post-206-079719500 1305173463_thumb.jpg

i think they call this topography.

i could be wrong.

post-206-076486600 1305173480_thumb.jpg

the san jose airport was nice.

two typical ending shots for my travel threads:

"looking out the window of the airport before boarding,"

post-206-055739600 1305173659_thumb.jpg

and an "out the window at high altitude" shot.

thanks so much again to jeff in costa rica who put us up for a week & showed us

an amazing time!

thanks also to those who came here to re-live the trip with us.

till next time :)

Great photos and travelogue! Wonderful to see Manuel Antonio, Jeff and his spectacular place again. Recognized a lot of spots in those photos. Hope you're enjoying it as much as ever, Jeff!

Couldn't resist trying to find a translation for your mystery sign in #218. That bottom word might mean 'to speargun'. Interesting spot you found...

Wow! looks like Heaven to me Paul. Thanks for all the Pictures. Although Seeing them is nothing like actually being there it was a great photo trip for me! Your place is awesome by the way and thanks for the hook up.
