A Few Pictures With Comments

I had meant to comment on these four things:

First of all: STRIP CLUBS. As we all know “from the movies,” strippers run on money, specifically paper money. So how does it work in a culture like Costa Rica or the Eurozone where they use coins more than bills? For example, the lowest-denomination bill here in Costa Rica is the 1,000 colones note, which is worth about 2 dollars. Not too expensive, I suppose, but consider the Eurozone, where the lowest bill is 5 Euros. So, in those types of cultures does a stripper strap a coin purse to her thigh, or does going to the strip club simply mean an expensive night out?

Next: BIGFOOT. Just kidding, that’s not Bigfoot, although the picture quality might indicate that. It’s actually an anteater that I saw from my car (he was really close at first, but by the time I got my camera out he had already plodded off). So, apparently there are anteaters in Costa Rica:

This is the “Oso Hormiguero,” or “Ant-er Bear.”

(I found this picture here… and why is he in a tree instead of on an anthill? Does this mean this sucker can fly??)

Just so you know, if you want to name an animal in Costa Rica, just take the word “oso” (bear) or “zorro” (fox) and then add a second word that vaguely describes what that animal is into. For example:

Oso Hormiguero: “Ant-er Bear” = Anteater
Oso Perezoso: “Lazy Bear” = Sloth
Zorro Pelón: “Bald Fox” = Opossum
Zorro Apestoso: “Stinky Fox” = Skunk
Zorro Pequeño: “Small Fox” = Cat
Zorra Desnuda: “Naked Fox” = Stripper

Actually, I was just kidding about those last two, but the others are true.


CAKE. I made this the other day, and it’s really, really tasty and really, really easy. If you’ve got some chocolate powder and red wine sitting around, then this recipe has your name on it. Just give it a try.
(Note: I used a silicon pan, so that may have affected the bake time. The recipe says 40 minutes but I needed to bake it for just over 60 till it was finally done)

Thanks for reading!
