OK, if you are a FB friend of mine, you have seen these photos, but OMG, I so have to share them here. So, Robert and I made our way to Puerto Veijo today. After checking into our hotel and unpacking, we made our way to the first bar we came across — turns out it was a place called The Point that served both microbrews and cheap wine and had a Green Bay Packers flag above the bar. So, as you can imagine, we planted ourselves on our bar stools and settled in for the afternoon. We totally thought that was good enough for the day. (In our defense, it is rainy season and rained all afternoon…).
However, at one point I looked over my shoulder towards the road and caught a glimpse of a sloth — yes a sloth — crossing the road. I yelped “Oh my god….watch my drink…” and went running out to the road.
And this is what I saw. It was amazing. One of the best days of my life. I even managed to stop some traffic while it crossed the road. And shoo’ed a dog away. And I was absolutely giddy for the rest of the afternoon.
This is so much better than the snakes in Cahuita…
