we're in heredia now, where the university of costa rica is located. this is where we will likely settle if jane joins me. it's even possible i might like this area if she doesn't. i think i'd like to spend a few months here regardless, renting a room or something. it's an interesting city, with a 200 yr plus history, some crumbling adobe buildings that miraculously survived frequent earthquakes, a couple of old, old churches with spectacular stained glass, and a lively college area, which could be really fun to hang out in when i speak spanish. jane's out looking for a colleague at the university. we'll see how that pans out. back saturday night!
