Jeff & Jan     Antique Chair  RVs

Costa Rica

We arrived in Punteranas 7:00 am on Sunday January 16, 2005 and departed at 7:00 pm..  We took a private tour of a rain forest park, the countryside and ended up in the town of Sarchi, which is famous for its hand painted ox carts.  Out tour guide, Mauricio has a large telescope from which we viewed the wildlife up close.  We put our digital camera lens into the telescope eye piece and focused the image using the digital display on the camera.
