Orchids 

Kansas sees another show she doesn't understand

I took a bus north and west out of Alajuela, to La Garita, an area of nices homes spread out along the road, and restaurants celebrating all things corn.

I walked a dusty broiling mile uphill to get to the Botanical Orchid Garden. A notice in The Tico Times, the weekly english language newspaper here (appears on Fridays), said there was a festival, with music and crafts.

I was near dead when I got there, and there was no music or festivities. There were orchids. And some nice paths to walk around on. I never really cooled down my whole time there. And the orchids were lovely.
