Visiting the Last Paradise on Earth - Costa Rica ÄŒ I've been traveling and writing about places I believe others would love to visit, to unwind from their busy and hectic schedules. Most recently I visited Costa Rica, a place which can be best described as one of the last paradises on earth. The last part of my trip was spent in the Cordillera de Humahuaca ("Humahuaca") which can be found about 200 km. north of San Jose in the Cordillera de Nexpensiveo ("Opportunities Mountain" area) as well as the Sandinista Volcano, which is the tallest in the world.
The CCR (Cordillera de Cordillera) is a mountain valley which is also the home of the rainforest. There are lots of places to go hiking, but I was most impressed with the Sandinista Volcano. It is a S weighted slope, so you can go either way. If you go uphill, you will see what everyone calls 'ali Mats' which are tall bamboo poles clothing. When you reach the top, you see the same as far as the eye can see, a very colorful array of clouds. It got me thinking about how useful this place would be in providing shelter from a wide variety of weather systems should it be subjected to a large variety of weather conditions. I found it to be an excellent place because of the unique combination of factors that formed it. The place is divided into two hills and each is watershed for a different rainforest. There are a number of attractions there including a waterfall, a pool, hot springs and a coat hanger.
Eric Tardif says I hiked the watch tower and had a look at the rain forest floor where there are panels painted on its face about species from rainforests around the world. I suppose it's pretty impressive to be able to see so much significant about the local environment just by stepping off the train. I lingered on the panel on the rain forest and tried to decide if I would paint it white, to contrast with the surrounding browns, or if it would be cooler and paler the lighter the canvas would be. I really had no idea what I would paint it as.
All I can say is that I was very taken by its beauty and decided to canvas it. I painted it black and looked around but could not really see much. Then I turned off the steaming hot steam and looked again. There it was, exactly as I had pictured. It was a small lake surrounded by dense vegetation rustled together.
It is a secluded spot and is very special. People who have heard about it are always special entertained. They can hear the breeze and see the rain falling on the canvas and know it is a good omen. It is a feeling quite like being in a cave being able to see so much more with such clarity. Besides it makes the place feel even more majestic.
I left the canvas and looked at the rainforest. They say that rainforest have a calming effect on individuals. I guess it is true because I felt calmer leaving the canvas than being in the rainforest. Besides, the Lentocampa tends to have a very cool climate. It is a protective environment. There are lots of trees that seem to be guarding this land of ferns.
Next, I went to the left of the Lentocampa, which is the direction of the caravan park and found a sunny spot to stop for a while. Then I went to the other direction and started to climb up the hill to that right place where I had seen a dish-washing facility earlier.
It was a small hill with a very rough slope surrounded by vegetation. When I went inside the facility, there was a disgusting situation. You see, the people wash dishes in the facility, but they do not clean the dishes. Instead, they put them on a cart and cart them up the hill. I suppose that is their solution to pollution. They dump the water and the soap soot on top of thebage.
I decided to play a trick on them. I sprayeduru-bacam spray(TM) around the garbage. It is a spray designed to be used as a deterrent. It is supposed to make people aware that they should not leave rubbish behind. I hoped that they would read this and spread the message to their fellow creatures.
I was wrong. I got the message. They dumped everything but the kitchen spigot was standing fast.
I panicked a little and started to honk to everyone around me to let them know I was going to be there. I went to the caravan and saw limb after limb lying around it.
Thankfully, nobody else stayed with us. We called the caravan and arranged to meet up with Krista, a local girl we had met there.
