Yes, I'm alive. I've been traveling throughout the Caribbean side of Costa Rica and (crossed over to Panama as well) for the last 2 weeks. Tortuguero, Cahuita, Puerto Viejo and Bocas Del Toro Islands in Panama. I survived a bike wreck, vicious spider monkeys (For God's sake, don´t feed them. Take it from a guy who fed them!), buses breaking down, and no running water for 3 days (Can you say "stinky"?)
Details to follow, be patient.
