Days 7 - 8

Postby jamesfc on Mon Mar 22, 2010 10:31 pm

On our 7th day in Costa Rica, we spent most of the day driving to get to the area of the Guami village. We picked up Alfredo, a very nice man who would be our guide to the village he has worked with them for many years and he and Jorge have worked together and have been friends for many years. His english was rusty, so I got a chance to practice my spanish! On the way, we had a special treat. During Easter week, they make a special dessert called miél de chiverre. This is a gourd that resembles a watermelon. The gourd is put into a fire, then opened and the insides scooped out and boiled. Jorge serves it with ice cream and it really is a special treat! We were lucky to be able to find it as it is only available one week of the year and we are a bit early.

We arose early on the 8th day. We are staying right on the Panama border and later in the day we actually walked across the border into Panama and purchased a few items in the free trade zone.

Our trip to the village was long and on a very steep and muddy road that is not maintained. No bridges, we had to forge streams with the 4x4. We got about half way to the village and were stopped by another truck and ordered to go back. We were told we did not have permission to be there even though Jorge and Alfredo had made all arrangements. After a 15 minute discussion, we were told to go ahead, but no one else would be allowed to the village again. We are the first to visit and it may be some time before anyone else gets to visit.

I allowed the children to take some picutres with my camera and that's how I got some pictures as we were told not to take photos.

It looks like you spend a great time with the public of Costa Rica. According to me the photos of people that you appear here sounds good and very happy public there. Hows your experience James? Please keep posting dear.
