~Travel Friends & Friends Costa Rica 11~
 
 
 
A gentle float down the Penas Blancas River that got pretty wet with water fights for some of the younger guests (without expensive cameras to protect). We stopped along the way for a visit with Don Pedro and his extended family. They have lived on the river all their lives, as did their ancestor. He will soon celebrate his 99th birthday.
