just wanted to give you a little picture of where we'll be staying. we are on the pacific coast of costa rica, and the cool thing about the geography here is that the rain forest meets the beach. i don't know exactly what its going to look like when i finally see it (i'm writing this ahead of time), but i am imagining something like the island on 'lost.' we will be staying about a mile from the beach in a cabina, enjoying the lush rainforest. hopefully the mornings will be sunny enough that we will be able to enjoy the beautiful beach, too. don't worry, i'll take lots of pictures!
