In The Beginning

Well, it´s 12:42am Costa Rica time, so 11:42 L.A. time. We finally arrived, a little late, but all in one piece and one group. We took a small detour to Panama to refuel because it was too foggy to land here (as the flight attendant explained, San Jose is in a valley and it´s been rainy so...) and we´d been circling. Anyway, we´re staying at a hostel called Hostel Pangea in San Jose for tonight. It seems nice. I´m in a room with 5 other girls...bunk beds...But there´s pizza downstairs and I´m hungry (and a little line of us TBBers waiting for the 2 out of 6 computers here that work) so I´m going to sign out. Also, please excuse typos...this is a strange keyboard and it´s dark in here.

You made it! Yay! I'm glad the weather (at least in the US) cooperated.

Aha - the journey begins. Glad you made it! This is so much fun for me to trail along on your blog...

So the adventure begins. . .(or In The Beginning if you prefer biblical. We wondered why your plane was "diverted to Panama City" per Continental; now we know.
Had dinner last night with a former Peace Corps administrator for North Africa who thinks TBB is a very promising idea. We'd all like to know more about what's going on in Costa Rica. XoXoXo,
Dad
P.S. Dodgers are in first place this morning.

Hey, Becca! Adelaide's in the Sierras, and you're in Costa Rica en route to Ecuador. How far you've gone since you were both rowing on the Black Warrior River in Tuscaloosa! Have a blast, and let us all read about it on your blog!
