Gut Rumbles

January 22, 2005

how did i miss this?

I was totally unaware that costa rica flooded. And I believe that some of these pictures were taken where I spent four days on my last trip to that beautiful country. I went all the way from Limon to Puerto Viejo, just short of the Panamanian border.

The Ticos told me that by the end of December, the rainy season is over on the Caribbean side. I guess they were wrong. They're in trouble now. I would much rather donate food, supplies and money to these hard-working, friendly people than give it to ungrateful Indonesians who hate our guts.

I've never seen an Osama bin Laden tee-shirt in Costa Rica.


Even though I speak the language I could not find a mailing address on that site. There are several bank routing numbers (Popular Bank) but no snail mail address. They are asking for clothing (separated by sex and age), diapers, powder milk, canned goods and money. My guess is money would be preferable. Maybe an intrepid blogger can set up a paypal and forward the funds to the Red Cross.

I'm so glad you linked that up! You know what, Acidman? You're not so bad;-)
