Welcome to the Jungle
the Gunancaste National Park. The name comes from a species of large tree that can be found in the park. I went with Aaron and Brianne, as well as Samantha our new intern. My dog Bailey and Aaron and Brianne's dog Bella also came.
You could tell I was new to the country because we were only two minutes into the park when I saw a trail of leaf-cutter ants. I got all super excited and even got down and took a picture (see left). As I might have figured when I saw the lack of enthusiasm from Brianne and Aaron (who have been here for eighteen months), we saw tons of these ants on our hike.
I tried to get Bailey to come out in the water with me, but he is petrified of the water. A few years ago, I tried to get him to go into a lake and he was so scared. Clearly has not gotten over his phobia.
