Hopped the bus with a chic I met on the bus there and who I saw at the hostal in Basemiento... Trying to remember all this shit. Time has passed and can't remember all the details. Anyhoo.
Needed those extra days just to chill on the beach. Blew through a shit ton of money.
Moved on after a couple of days, totally passed San Jose as I understood it is a shit hole. Kinda seemed that way as I passed through. Not my scene to hit up capital cities... Totally passed it on my way to the border, where I stopped as close as I could in Liberia and spent a couple of lavish days. I wasn't feeling well, so got a private room with cable TV and just ate junk food. It was awesome! Two days later I emerged from the room. The owner wasn't sure what was wrong with me. I left only to buy tons of chocolate scuffling around in the streets in my PJs searching for open stores that had the badly needed goods... Any kind of chocolate I could find was incredibly needed. Local resources for choco junkies was nearly negligable, but I found stuff to help me through...
Liberia totally sucked! So glad I had cable TV and a private room. Soooo not recommended unless you want to bored off your ass in a hole. People were overall nice though.. Kinda a weird place.. Out of place... didn't seem like it would be in Costa Rica.
Moved on across the border to my main destination...... Nicaragua!
