Wednesday we all went up for gyrocopter rides at a place a few miles out of town: it was a wonderful experience: http://youtu.be/TZO1ZM-TuC4

Still some pleasures possible
We've only got a week and a day left here in Samara, Costa Rica. The weather has been great, maybe a bit hot (my left foot swells like a sausage in the heatand it's been a dry 35 almost every day), but I get into the pool for a couple of physio sessions every day. Our place (Villas Kalimba) has been perfect: great accommodations, nice pool, close to the beach (though I haven't gotten into the ocean yet - waves are too big). Internet connections were a bit flaky, but given the number of devices connected in the 7 villas around here, it's not a surprise. We're closed to many restaurants I can get to on my poles, and many other we can reach with my wheelchair. We make quite a sight, I'm sure: my sister Marilyn opening the road, Bela the dog behind her, Mary pushing me in my "mustang" wheelchair, Gerri behind all of us holding my poles like they were spears.
