Our bus to San Jose was stopped at a randomn mountain stop, when a black jeep pulled up and we heard 2 loud bangs, like gun shots. I was ready to hide my goods and prepare for a hostage situation! The bus driver sped off with all the doors open... but it was ok, only fireworks being set off for a joke!
San Jose is not really an enticing city - one day there was enough for us! Explored the cultural plaza and walked around some parks and shops... and were ready to head off again!An earthquake occured on the Panama\ Costa Rica border while we were here! 6.2 on the Reichter scale; a lot of people felt it, but we were snuggled up and slept through it!!!
