Well we made it to Liberia! We took a cold and very short walk down a busy street in Toronto last night to wear off a great dinner! Our flight to Liberia was on time and after a bit of a panic at the ticket self-service kiosk (Curtis' ticket had his middle name, passport did not!) we boarded our plane. We sat with a nice young man who kindly gave us his travel book for Costa Rica. The flight was uneventful followed by a smooth landing at a very windy airport in Liberia. Yes, there may have been a few random thoughts about crashing 😄. All went well and we disembarked to a very hot and humid day. At that moment I totally realized I had too many clothes, and several I would not need! We eventually found our way to the Best Western Las Espuelas hotel. A clean, yet nondescript place where we sat around the pool soaking up some late afternoon rays of much appreciated sunshine and enjoyed a cold beer. Curtis realized we weren't the only sun worshippers after spying a huge iguana sunning itself in the rafters near our room! After a nap we went down to the hotel restaurant for our New Year's Eve dinner! Wishing all our friends a wonderful and blessed new year filled with love, friendship and good health!
