The pothole pit
The above picture is not doctored – it is really me, jumping over a very real pothole on a sidewalk in the town of Grecia, just yesterday.
I know I look quite agile here, but I was really pretty cautious (and perhaps just a wee bit scared). Look how deep this hole is, you could seriously hurt yourself if you weren’t looking where you were going:
Potholes and uneven sidewalks are a very real thing here.
A year ago one of my friends in a nearby city accidentally stepped in a hole, broke her ankle, and was laid up for months while it healed. I just heard from another friend, who fell and tore several ligaments in her arm, and has to be in a sling now for a couple of weeks.
I’ve fallen before, myself, shortly after first arriving in Costa Rica (click here for my –> “trip to the pharmacy“) and have been very careful ever since, along with Greg being very worried about me. When you see us walking in town holding hands all the time – it’s not just because we’re in love.
So remember, while walking around Grecia – look down, at all times!
That’s all for now! — Jen
