Chris Goes for a Horseback Ride

Chris and Nam on their steeds. Everyone on the trip got a brown horse except Nam who got a white one. When I asked her why she had a white horse she said, "because I'm the good guy."

Nam rides up to the volcano.

When we got near the top, there was this viewing platform. And next to the platform, in a tree only about 10 feet off the ground was a sloth. It didn't do all that much, but it was the best look at a sloth we had the entire trip.

Another view of the sloth.

This was the view from the viewing platform. There were these English girls on the ride with us that asked Nam to take a photo of them, and Nam said, "Do you want me to get the volcano in the background?"

Another view near the platform. There were a bunch of watering stations along the way, and everytime we'd get to one all the horses would drink except mine, who didn't seem interested. Of course this led Nam to remark, "You can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink!"

Riding through the jungle. There were a number of steep spots along the way, and I was afraid that the horses would fall, but they did a great job.

Chris enjoys the view.

If you are thinking of going to Peru instead of Costa Rica, see my Peru Page.

If you are thinking of going to Southern France instead of Costa Rica, see my France Page.

If for some reason you think that I'm a great writer, and you like scary, conspiracy-laden, psychological thrillers (think DaVinci Code), you can read my novel, City of Pillars, published by The Invisible College Press. It has nothing to do with Costa Rica though. PS: I use my middle name as my nom de plume, but it's still me.

If for some reason you want to read my creepy, melancholy, darkly-humorous photocomic, just click on this link for tiny ghosts. Unlike the book, this is totally free! However, it also doesn't have anything to do with Costa Rica.
