    The hour of 1:00 pm, true to form, brought the usual afternoon rainstorm. But, this one was a serious torrential downpour. Unfortunately, that all went down right when I had to go to the bank to withdraw some cash from the ATM. I put it off for as long as possible, but by 2:45 pm, I had to go for sure, because I was afraid the bank might close by 3:00 pm. Plus, the next day was Saturday, and the bank is closed all weekend. So, I busted out the umbrella and headed over there. Various little shops’ roofs covered the sidewalk part of the way, but for the rest of the route, I had to make a mad dash for it. I got wet from the thighs down anyway.

    Then there was a language barrier with the ATM itself, which did not use the English language on every page of a transaction, even though I pressed the English option to begin with. Aside from that little adventure, I pretty much spent the whole day Photoshopping all of my photos from my trek in Corcovado National Park the day before and banging out the text for that mega post. Here are a few more photos from yesterday.
