Three nights ago I landed in Costa Rica and my first morning in San Jose I had dental surgery. I’m to take it easy for a few days and stay out of the sun but i’ve been holed up on this studio apartment for the last 2 days and I couldn’t handle being indoors anymore so today I set out to explore the neighborhood.
I knew I was in for an interesting day when my taxi driver who from the get go I suspected couldn’t be older than 16, confessed that he had no idea where I was trying to go but he could drop me at the bus stop. This came after I previously explained my destination, which he said he was familiar with and we settled on the fare.
Though his baby face gave him away, my driver had the mannerisms of an young man,
From ever since i’ve known myself i’ve been terrified of insects – all types but bees and wasps especially. Then this summer I ended up in Indonesia and then the Australian Outback and if I was to enjoy any of it I needed to get over my fear of bugs promptly.
