It's cold in the mornings here.
Nightfall is a blanket of stars with no way of seeing what is ten feet in front of you. There are lots of stray dogs and locals who look at me with a sense of familiarity. And I love it. There's this air of "home" and it just feels right.
I found two great things here in Monte: a horse named Pinto and a great soda serving large portions of comida tipica for only 2,600 CRC.
I rode Pinto to the top of the mountain just in time to catch a beautiful rainbow after the day's sun shower. Pinto was kind enough to take a photo with me.
