The Church In Cartago

When most people think of Costa Rica (or maybe its just me), they think of massive volcanoes, animal filled jungles and plenty of bananas. With Adrian & Kelly in charge, we hoped to get all this done and so much more.

Adrian drove us through historic Cartago to show us some of the lovely churches & allowing Mark to attack the unsuspecting locals and street cleaners.

We then went on the very scenic drive through the clouds to Volcán Irazu, the largest and highest active volcano in Costa Rica. On a clear day, it is apparently possible to see both the Pacific & Atlantic oceans. If the views weren't awesome enough, standing on the edge and peering into an active volcano is something else.

After a summarised version of Kelly's Grand Tour of the town, we found our way to the Museo De Los Ninos.

Cartago
This has to be one of the best museums that I have ever I have been to, rivaling even the Louvre. Who says its only for kids.

Us 4 kids all loved it completely and almost took too many photos and videos. The best has to be when we went into the recording studio to record our rehearsed impromtu rendition of The Beatles song, Twist & Shout. We have decided not to reform as it wouldn't give anyone else a chance and to finish our careers on a high note, although we did have a little difficulty in reaching those high notes to be fair.

The exhibits were all hands on in the museum and so provided plenty of fun for us ever mature people. On the premises of the museum there was a tilted house that was simply spectacular. It messed with your mind. The rooms were all built to mess with your head and your perspective of what is what.

One room made me appear as a Leprechaun compared to the giant of Kelly.

Later on we met back up with Senor Adrian and her took us out to an area called El Pueblo where you have an area of plenty of bars, clubs and restaurants. We had a fantastic dinner, even better conversations when it felt like we had all known each other a long time. We went off to a really cool bar with some Spanish music playing, Adrian gave myself & José some valuable advice on how to get ourselves a woman. As he says the best form of teaching is through doing. Simply put, the man is a legend.

All in all, this was a fantastic day, simple as.
