San José

I actually woke up and made my 6am bus this morning… and so I was in San José by 10ish… I got in some free internet time at the hostel and then headed out for a few hours of shopping along the pedestrian mall of Avenida Central…

I managed to find an English language bookstore where I picked up a new Spanish-English dictionary, a Spanish grammar quick reference guide, a copy of “Far From the Madding Crowd” by Thomas Hardy… which I was reading an eBook of on my PDA before it got stolen… but now I can finish it still.. woohoo! I also picked up a cheap copy of Cold Mountain, the book that spawned the pretty bad movie of the same name… I also managed to find a decent belt (after looking in like 15 plus stores since I got into Panama)…

I checked numerous places for prices on digital cameras… and wasn’t able to find anything reasonable by US prices… So I’m just going to buy a couple disposable cameras for the meantime and have Marzena bring me down a new one in a couple weeks…

Tomorrow I’m going to find one of these mega-malls they have around here… to try to find a small day bag to replace the one that got stolen… If I can’t find one, I’ll just have Marzena bring me another like the one I had before…

In other news, there’s a party going on in my intestines… and apparently it’s at my expense… It’s not too bad tho… hopefully it will pass quickly…

On that note… g’night all!
