Slothy Sunday: Life moves pretty fast. Stop and look around once in a while
To borrow a line from Ferris Bueller: Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.
Costa Rica is an excellent place to practice patience. Whether you’re waiting in line at the bank, waiting for a road blockade to clear, or waiting for a sloth to finish the one-meter dash at the 5th annual Ironman Games, the concept of time is a little less-defined here.
That said, Costa Rica is a good place to look around once in a while. Let your eyes wander, and you might see sloths, monkeys or toucans in the nearest tree. Stray off the beaten path, and you might find a new favorite restaurant or a hidden waterfall.
It’s the little things that make life so special.
