Hello from Costa Rica

Flew Frontier airlines out of LA, through Denver and on to San Jose, Costa Rica. Had the good fortune of getting emergency aisle seats for the second, longer leg of our flight, only to find that they did not recline. Did not manage to sleep much.
We arrived in Costa Rica this morning at 5 am. Alonso, the owner of the hostel we booked picked us up and drove us to his Hostel Tropical in Alajuela where we promptly passed out in one of the bunks. He has been an excellent host. Extremely helpful.
Our slumber was interrupted by a marching band that was practicing across the street. The drumming was pretty good, and surprisingly loud.
After a few hours of blessedly horizontal sleep, we are heading out to explore Alajuela.

LA isn't so bad, is it?

We should get out and get some perspective.
