I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

Thursday, August 11, 2022


The town of Monteverde was a fifteen minute walk down the mountain from the hotel, and I only went there once. It's touristy, with lots of restaurants and tour companies and a few souvenir shops, but pleasantly low-key. I had lunch in a cafe, and accomplished my main purpose, which was to pick up something for my itchy bug bites at the farmacia.

It was hot the day I was in town and most people were wearing shorts. I was amused to see that every single one of them had the same red bumps on their legs that I did. There are no mosquitos that high up in the mountains, but plenty of other biting and stinging insects, and despite long sleeves, long pants, and plenty of insect repellant, I think I was bitten by all of them.
