Wow, that's a cow
Instead of talking about our incredible adventures in Monteverde, I think it's more important to mention the trip there. While we were driving we saw 2 cows hanging being cleaned outside a house on the side of the road. It was just the trunk with the legs, all skinned, but it was interesting, to say the least. There were 3 or 4 people splashing water (I think) on them to clean them off. It was quite a cultural sight, if anything. I wasn't sure what to think, except to remind myself that we are in Costa Rica. Perhaps 2 months ago this would have freaked me out. But not anymore. Apparently, this is normal. Or at least that is what I told myself. My favorite part, though, was the reaction of the 3 vegetarians...PRICELESS.
