SPECIAL NIGHT IN SAN JOSE... Jeff and Deanne went to Mirador Ram Luna for a special dinner date. High above the city of San Jose on top of a mountain at nearly 6,000 feet above sea level, we dined with a view of the entire city's lights. It was a magnificent view of the city and its 3 million inhabitants. We drove up the mountain on a motorcycle that is a story in and of itself; we were leaving the city at rush hour no less. We enjoyed many of the traditional foods of Costa Rica. We loved the ceviche, the soup, the homemade tortilla chips, and of course arroz con leche y cafe con leche for dessert. There was a show featuring many cultural aspects of this culture. It was such a memorable evening. Clouds came in and completely covered the lights of the city. It was like the David Copperfield made the city of San Jose completely disappear. What a scientific lesson. Thank you Lord for these special opportunities to view your creation and your people from a different vantage point.
