Dinner at Koki Beach
Downtown Puerto Viejo. Street vendors and shops, tourists and locals all huddled together along the road. Yummy food at all the bright colors of Koki Beach restaurant—yucca strips and guacamole, sea bass, grilled veggies and pina coladas. A half-eaten leaf plops onto my head. Later, we meet “Daniel” a year-old local sloth hanging around on the roof and trees above us.
Lightening flashes over the ocean along the horizon. The air is still warm. Paradise. The cure is still working.
