Ricardo insisted on cooking breakfast this morning.  Bacon, ham, Costa Rican coffee and freshly made bread and marmalade.  I am eatiing good!  then I was off to the Central Mercado, The National Theatre, Hotel San Jose and the Museo Banco de Centrale Costa Rica,  commonly called the gold museum.  It was a great quiet morning visiting my old haunts.

Early afternoon found us at the beautiful home of Dona Delfina.  Dona Delfina's home is graced with scores of paintings and sculptures from all over the world.  the home seems more like an elegant museum or art gallery.  And this is the mother of my friend Ricardo Collado?  As always lunch was served.  So interesting and good.  I should just visit Dona delphine every day.


Tomorrow?  Luis Diego Romero will join Ricardo and me for the Sunday ride with M14.  Ricardo has a few days of family matters that requires his attention, but Luis Diego and I are headed up to Nicaragua, then Guanacaste.  maybe we will ride the beach towns of the Pacific--maybe visit a farm or two.  Without doubt I will learn much from Luis Diego and this beautiful area.
