i am still fine, well and good looking…;) I couldn`t change my flights, so i had to leave my new friend David at the lake of Atitlan, in San Pedro, he has just started doing some Artesanias, and he is fine. I for myself spent the last 2 days in Antigua, with an American from Alaska, a nice fella. on the last day we hiked up to the active volcano Pacaya, it was really amazing.

My first day in Costa Rica was good, i went directly to Alajuela, because i am fed up with the big cities, and let me tell you, Costa Rica is really expensive, and full of american tourists, so that even the prices are in US$, and if you pay in Colones the price is the half…. So i won´t spend my whole ten days here. On the second day, today, i went up to the volcano Poas, which can be reached by bus, right to the top, so fat americans don´t have to hike. the view was nice, but we (i met a german-croatien guy, Daniel) had three hours to kill, so we did the paved walk two times, and with the time more clouds blow up the mountain… and in the afternoon it rained for about one hour, exactly from 3pm to 4pm.
