Verde on the bumpiest road I have ever been on (supposedly improved)
to the countryside leading to Lake Arenal. This is the largest
man made lake in Costa Rica, the process relocating entire communities
then flooding the area. Electricity is produced from this lake
which sits in the shadow of Volcano Arenal, one of the most active
volcanoes on the Earth. It has been continuously erupting since
1968. Often steam clouds completely hid it. The sign on the other
side of the lake indicates that there are crocodiles in it.
