In 1995, my wife and I spent a month in Costa Rica. I kept a diary on that trip. When we got home, I wrote a detailed account of our adventure. The article is titled,

Best Rates
Costa Rica Hotels


"Costa Rica
Great People, Magnificent Jungles, Rugged Mountains
and
Beaches, Beaches, Beaches "

It begins with:

We'd always wanted to see real jungle. But we didn't want to risk our lives or our health to achieve that dream. Costa Rica let us experience the jungle with a relative degree of safety. On February 17th, 1995 we left for a 26 day adventure. We got a free upgrade to First Class and that's how the rest of the trip went - everything clicked, everything was First Class.

And, 61 pages later, ends with:

And we dance, all by ourselves, on this concrete patio, with a misty rain falling, overlooking the lake, our last day in Costa Rica, while Barbara Striesand sings "Memories."
