There were six riders and three cowboys to escort us. We were given helmets to wear, both for the horseback ride and for our next activity.
What is the next activity? Stay tuned.
Excuse me for this shout-out, but I would like to use this occasion to wish happy birthday today to my brother. He is a clinical psychologist who has helped people his entire professional life. He and his wife (a social worker) work for the Veterans Administration in Minnesota, primarily evaluating and helping veterans who have returned from Iraq and Afghanistan. He has a delightful and talented family. Each of his two children has travelled to Costa Rica twice.
