Wednesday and yes, the rain continues.  Maybe not as hard as Monday but still discouraging bike travel  After all Ricardos apartment is warm and dry.  And the news from Limon and the Atlantic coast?  Massive flooding, roads closed, people being relocated to higher ground and relief shelters.  Our ride to the Atlantic must wait.

Thursday and yet more rain.  And it seems cold.  Seventy degrees may seem warm, but in this higher elevation and rainy San Jose, it seems cold.

Today we will begin some motorcycle maintenance and have lunch in the beautiful home of Ricardos mother, the elegant Delphine.  And by tomorrow I must make preparations to fly back to Texas for Christmas.  But yes, I will be returning here to Costa Rica in late February and March.
