Is Tutu Atwell Too Small to Succeed in the NFL? - burst 08
"Now to god. The i know that you are extremely enthusiastic about Terrence marshall going to the panthers. Twenty seven th pick of the second round just a few picks after escorts from lsu tears marshall to the panthers. What are your thoughts on this cal. I'll pick it a fantastic lang spot. you know. I think i was super high on marshall. Probably highest of just about anybody in the industry All all college season. And all you know predrag and my my enthusiasm is not where one bit. I love the landing spot where some people might be turned off on it You know I know that he is not maybe going to be immediately. Be the number. One with robby anderson and with dj more there. But i think he's going to have a clear role from day one because if you look at his body type and how profiles ios not just a big bodied receiver he also is a a burner to i mean he is true burner and You know high jump. High catch radius any any provides the wide receivers did not do as your which was give a teddy bridgewater. Now is going to be darnold. But they didn't have anybody to score in the red zone. You know everything. They they scored was from like you know deeper out or the the running backs the mike davis or you know. But they really didn't have anybody in the red zone that they could produce. So i think marshall steps in right away and could be. I bet he has a real legitimate chance at leading all rookies in in receiving touchdowns ex year. So you know it's somebody that i like. As far as a talent. I think he can easier to age. Well in that offense because He is going back with his former college coach. Now the head coach of the of the panthers. So i think that this guy drafted him whereas he might have fallen a little bit in. Nfl draft because there was a little bit uncertainty right before the draft about some of his medical history. I don't think coach takes them at high if he has any type about about the about his foot injury so i think that this is going to be the guy that's going to be all help you. Now you're gonna have some flashes. He's going to be probably inconsistent. Probably a lot like a like. I kind of value him a lot. Like the where i had claypool asher whereas i kind of knew that there was going to be a lot of competition for targets but i knew that there was gonna be a lot of upset especially if somebody gets hurt And i just think that there's gonna be a lotta touchdown and he's a big guy when people start really understanding how much of a freak athlete is. Don't be surprised if this guy is being compared as maybe even number one wide receiver in this class next year. That's that's how upside. i see you know. I do think chases a better prospect but you know they were on the same team and You know even on the team with jefferson and chase He marshall was extremely valuable piece of their natural shape team. I mean he. I think he had like fourteen touchdowns or something you know. And he had costa twenty yard per catch average on the team. I mean he he really is a tremendous player and then when those two guys left last year you know he played over about a. I don't know about six or seven seven games. you opted out. And he averaged one hundred and fifteen dollars. You're talking about more leading devante smith. It was really. I believe tears marshall who bleeding the country in yards per game you know before he opted out and he also was averaging close to two touchdowns a game you know and this same competition is all those. Stc guy so. I just liked body. I can't i hate to sound like a broken record. But i really do like big receivers. It's not the smaller wide. Receivers can't thrive in that bayer wide receivers don't bust. I just think that when you historically look at all the body types of players that are generally over six foot in there like over two hundred pounds to twenty six. I'd say two to twenty is about the average. You know we get the top hand wide receiver fantasy for fancy standpoint every year. That's probably about the average. So i like my guys. That profile big catch raises. So i just feel like they're more consistent with a when when you get that's capable of being a possession receiver getting first downs and touchdowns. I i like their consistency versus having a field stretcher. We might put up forty points in a game lake. You kyle i am. I am feeling good about carrots. Marshall and about what he's gonna do in his nfl career. The only hold back that. I have with taras marshall and again this could be viewed as a positive based on what i'm going to say in a second is so terrorist marshall hops into offense with dj more lobbying said in christian. Mccaffrey already there. So you're already looking at the possibility of being the fourth target there in carolina which i deal and add that to the fact that sam darnold who i think everyone considers at this point to be in the bottom. Half of the starting quarterbacks is throwing the ball to terrence. Marshall this is this is clearly not ideal so short term. There are some concerns. I do think like you that he's going to be great in the red zone. Short term era. You're gotta be thinking while sam. Donna already has connected to robinson clearly. The carolina organization views. Dj moore's or number receiver cj. Metcalf a christian mccaffrey a year a year ago. He broke the record for the most receptions for running back in a single season ever. She has to view him almost as a receiver. At this point with the matt of receptions which is insane that he's getting one hundred receptions i think it was a year or two ago so that that's not ideal but dynasty football dicey football so not necessarily great redraft person. In my opinion but dynasty football is about the long game and the long game. I see in the long game i see turns marshall absolutely thriving because we don't know a five we anderson's gonna be in carolina long-term. We don't know what the scenario is going to be with. Sam darnold or with christian mccaffrey. Dj more but we know the is one of the best receivers in this class in. He is talented enough will were at some point career. He will get an opportunity probably sooner rather than later if not this year to really showcase what he can do and he has the talent to be a number one receiver. I love his size. I loved as a big bodied receiver. That's a great fan a red zone. There are a lot of good things about terrence marshall and so what i was saying earlier is the fact that not going to be good in the short term is almost a positive here for you as a dynasty are because now we're seeing him fall to the third fourth fifth round pick of the second round which is lower than it should be gone if anything. This guy should be going at the back half of the first half so now because the term concern that comes with marshall. Now you're gonna be able to go up there and gets terrorist marshall and you're not gonna have to reach from either he's probably just gonna fall right in your laps and you're gonna walk is one of the biggest winners in your dynasty graphs. Because here's a guy that has a potential to be a top five receiver in this

And i'm trying to do more and more that I think i've gotten better ads becoming much more vulnerable. But i think the problem. I see in a lot of the entrepreneurs that deal with is. It's that private story. It's that space between your ears. That really is preventing the for having success. They really want and most importantly really living the passion that dream they they talk a big story but they don't believe in themselves asset something you've experienced one hundred percent even as the end of the the funny but i would say the most interesting part is that it doesn't matter how successful you are so i worked with six seven eight nine figure enterpreneurs and matter because they keep telling in creating this magnificent story on the outside hiring brand experts like cr- the best copywriters in crafting something so that they can share in their work in their funnels in their websites.

The Friendliest Countries
"Is a fun episode. I'm not really sure it'll be on your list and guys this is why specifically. I'm gonna ask you to give us your list on instagram at extra packing peanuts. Let us know the from these countries because this is a term that can mean a lot of things with a lot of people and it's very dependent on your specific experiences in those countries right. Because you know everyone's going to have different experiences that was. That's what's fun about traveling. Someone could go to a country. That's there's someone aspect or i didn't. I didn't see this that friendly. It's because you're obviously having your own unique experiences. I have an honorable mention. Okay and i want this be on the list. And but i'm just gonna put on mention and then move on and maybe talk about a little later but australia. It's on my list. It's pretty high at my awesome perfect and then we can get into australia than that. Yeah we'll get into that okay. Cool well then here. We go each have five. We're gonna countdown again. We always tell you we. When we do the list episodes. I don't know how she doesn't know my so. There might be some crossover. I don't know what's on harris or where it is. She doesn't mind so and you always lead it off ladies first number five. My number five is cambodia. And i have to say that. This is because of one person individually the nicest human. We have ever met dr as. I have said this multiple times on other podcasts. that is boondi and there are other people in cambodia who are really nice too but boondi was driver the very first time that we went to cambodia and you know we have since seen him again. When we've been we've connection on social media you know we're facebook friends. He is one of the loveliest people we've ever met in the world and so therefore cambodia has to be on my list. Yeah he's the i will say. This is the nicest person i've met ever traveling. And i debate putting cambodia on the only reason i didn't was because we haven't had that much experience with a lot of other people. They're the people we have have been super friendly so again. This comes down to like. What are you considering. You know this gut reaction again. It was harder for me to make this list i think. Then he'll is the nicest human we have ever met and the gentlest soul. We've ever met and an absolutely phenomenal individual. That many of you listening. If you've been to cambodia and been to see him reap have used him as a driver before based on us recommending him and he is. Everyone has come back and said. Oh my gosh everything you say about plenty is completely true and you probably even under sell like i. I can't believe how nicest guy so if you go to see him reap. We have a post on our website. One extra peanuts take the two minutes to find it. Get his number and e-mail boondi you will be. It's the best two to three minutes you could ever because he will make your experience. Incredible and I can't wait for the day. That we get to see him and his wife and his family again because they are absolutely lovely people My number five. And i'm going to stay in that same region carry on because i put thailand on and i also have talent on my list but yeah we'll talk about it now just different cultures different people but a lot of similarities. Because you're in the same region and you know it's called the land of smiles and we have spent more time in thailand than than most other countries that we've been to and we have more people there just because the way we've traveled through. And you know everyone is just. They're just happy to to be a lot like there's a there's a happiness that permeates that culture where you could have someone who in our is you know is poor and and has job. Maybe we wouldn't want to do or something like that. And he's sitting on a boat cutting up pineapple as we're on a on a little trip out to this island and he's just smiling so big because he's just on a boat cutting pineapple and it's delicious and we're having a good time because reverend good time. This guy's having a good time. So thailand just overarching. -ly deserves its name. The land of smiles. yeah. I definitely agree with that. It's higher on my list. It's number two and every time we've been to thailand which has been quite a few times as trump said. We spent a lot of time there. One full month just in chiang mai meeting type people. They're always so friendly and we went to tie wedding. not uninterested. area was our friends hometown and we didn't know that many people there because it was her family and her friends of her family was huge. Like two hundred plus people. Everybody was so friendly than we actually went out after the wedding with some of her closest friends and it was just such an experience. Yeah we we've met so many wonderful friendly people thailand okay. So thailand's you're number two. But what's your number four my number four co stabby guy So we have been in costa rica now for two and a half months which is one of the longest times we've ever spent in another country. Of course right. I think this is the longest continuous. We've ever been in another country other than when we lived in japan. Yeah i think so and that being said everyone here is really friendly. And we don't wanna leave. I mean the eighty five and sunny and paul has to do with it. But the i mean all that's great but the people as everyone who's traveled knows. Yeah the people make the travel experience what it is and from the day we got here even actually before we got here. I was looking for a babysitter hours in like this. Tamarind facebook group like so many people are sending me. Hey this person that person you know. I was like wow. Everyone seems really really helpful. And then we got here and not only are people helpful. But they're just overly nice and same thing like heff foster her watch in the ocean and we put a thing on that facebook group again and saying. Hey we lost his watch and all these people were tagging this other guy who like two weeks before said he founded apple. Watch wasn't the same one but you know just random strangers are like trying to help us get this. And that's just the strangers. That's not even the amazing people that we've really bond with probably a lot of ex- ex- goes yeah but all the all of the local costa rican people who are called tikos yep. They are so friendly from the guard. Who is at our condo. Who the hell on how who speaks very little english but is so kind and so lovely and is so engaged with our children like it's the point where like of course we're we're walking a lot more leaving we're walking and he says hello you know like pure vida and what's up my friend but then even in the car leaving and he wants to come over to the car and we put the windows down he talks to the kids. The kids pounds. He is just wonderful. And that's just one person mean our nannies. Here are costa rica and they are lovely and so wonderful and having vitus to a birthday party and bring the kids crafts in toys for them to play on just like welcome us into their lives and it's just yet people are great. It's really nice very welcoming community and yet to the point that wit sometimes wakes up in the morning and he goes. Where's on hell is on l. out at the You know out at the entrance. Where the fords. I don't know we'll run out there to go find on l. First thing in the morning. So yeah i i'm with you. Costa rica definitely a magical place. And i think that when it don't look at my most are looking for the audio heather is blatantly. My list is off. The table have looked at his list. And so i followed and wear his vision by number four. I mean i guess at this point rica on your list and you just tell my number four interest. My number four is one. That i'm not sure i was happy to have this on the list. Because i'm not sure. It's going to make your list or nine and this and australia are very similar to me. In the way that the people like to just enjoy life and that is ireland. Okay yeah i know what. That's a good thought. That's a really is not on my list kind of forgot we went. There wasn't the first gut reaction country to be on my list. But when i looked at a map usually you and i will look at a map just to just kind of spur some inspiration and i pulled up the map when i was going through and i was looking at europe like spain. People are pretty nice. Portugal was really cool. Italy annex saw ireland and mike ireland. Yeah like to me some of the experience. We have an ireland per personify friendliness. Like they just want to have a crack right crack meaning a good time so you know irish are known for wanting to just have a good time. There was plenty of nights. We'd be sitting in pubs. Music would start flowing. People were talking like again. There is really open. Friendly and enj- enjoying life

One was a bill for young dreamers and another for farm workers. The latter would create protections for roughly one million Add workers. Within California representative Doug Will. Mulpha was one of 30 Republicans to reach across the aisle to back the bill.

Currently, Democratic Congress member Jim Costa from Fresno spoke on the Capitol floor farm workers. Some of the hardest working individuals you ever meet. I know because I've worked side by side for years. Growing up on my family's farm. It's simply wrong that they be subject to living and working under shadow of uncertainty and fear of being deported. The bill faces gloomy prospects in the evenly split. Senate Democrats will need at least 10 GOP supporters to break Republican

"W.. F., end or GWP FW, FM DOT ORG once again. This is Oscar Fernandes and we're talking about. The black lives matter movement in Costa Rica. We're joined by PAMELA CUNNINGHAM WHO's in Africa's Rican activist and the CO founder of Costa Rica Afro, so family, you know we've done several shows on the African diaspora in central, America and I think most people in the audience are aware that the majority of the Afro Latino Community routes into America's throughout the Atlantic coast from from Belize all the way down to Panama. We've spoken in the past about the Funada's in Honduras and also the Afro Latino community as a mixed with the indigenous community places like like Nicaragua. We've regards to Costa Rica. Much like Central American neighbors. They're pretty much. You know for the most part and you correct me. If I'm wrong, we'll see have historical roots along the Atlantic coast, so you know from a geographical point of view, and not to mention geopolitical World Cadet Pratt's explain the disconnect between Afro Latinos and the rest of Costa Rica because all your see Central America's not a Monolithic Society and away after Latinos are treated in Honduras me, not be the same as in Costa Rica. Yeah it could exploded in wage, but you know Costa Ricans have has roots all over Costa Rica rate. I think one of the issues is will. The fact is that? Many of the Afro Caribbean people emigrated to Costa Rica, and greatest to be Mon, which is the Atlantic part of the country and They emigrated with the idea of going back to their countries right when they ended up being Basically stuck here the government and the states. They. Basically! Worked on dismantling their community, their society, prohibiting English schools and and kind of forcing assimilation rate and I think this is my personal opinion. I, think that Costa Ricans in in many did work hard on assimilating raid, and and the fact. Is that Costa? Rica's a as a general culture or just people. We are pretty much non-confrontational and and that kind of rubbed off. I think because Many of the efforts that maybe when I, when I think about people in Bluefields or people to refer people rate, people in new stunning, in Guatemala or people in. In Panama have have worked together to. To. You know kind of reclaim. The land reclaimed their culture because we think I could have done it swell, but the power is. The structural powers in the country really have pushed hard on assimilation I need has happened right we have in in many instances been assimilated and And and that's kind of. Caused a rift there's I. Don't see necessarily. The level of unity between the advocacy can people that we see in I know. hundred search sample right where you know, there's a coalition of groups that are have a clear agenda that they are pressing towards. We have different groups of activists in Costa Rica pressing for different subject, but that cohesiveness between the community I at least right now in my lifetime I don't know before, but right now. I don't see it as clearly and I think that's one of the areas where we definitely need to work on to kind of. Create that network at Community of people with an objective that could. Uplift as as as a group in St. L. Individually I don't know I may. Know it does make sense because again. It's hard to have. Because as I said before Central America's not a monolithic. Society so the treatment of African Americans is vastly different from what I've. Hondurans are facing right now especially with. Their current government quote unquote that they've had for the last eleven. Years is a profoundly different problem. They're facing, so you can't necessarily expect to have the same of cohesion because it's a different set of problems from country to country. With that said before we took the break you talked about you. Know the the momentum and sort of spontaneous actions. Costa Ricans have taken. You know in light of the black lives matter movement. You know it's not just here in the US, but it's worldwide, and so I wonder if you could give us some details about the black lives matter petition. That's been pushing closer. Towards the Costa Rican government and which organizations are leading petition. This is also very important. One of them is. We have what we call that commission out. Afro in Costa, Rica which is kind of like the. Thar or liaisson of. would. The would the government between the Afro Population and the government right so he's a commissioner so but it is a Without, a salary position without an office, right, we are really are asking. The State of Costa Rica to fund that rate We think that in order to create public policy and push towards. We cannot do it on while in tearing alone. We really need somebody that has an office that has budget, and that that has a salary right because that would be their job so that is one of the petitions that we have are reading, and then the other one is Rica. We have a big gap. Right it right now. I am the victim of racism. I have nowhere to go. There's no law that really penalizes racism, or even as testifies what it is right. If many people sometimes reach outwards Costa Rica and tell us you I suffered this this happened to me. What can I do? Usually you've got to have those to a woman. They can go to the to the. Secretary the Office of of the. School. That means video where. necessarily. Can Go there and and advanced her teeth. Even if they go to the Ombudsman Office, there's a a group an office force for women issues. There's an office. For. Digitize People's issues, but there's no office for Costa Rican issues rape. There's no. Though that pushes affirmative actions or or pushes Specific changes so. There, have been changes things have happened. Would we have had the? Luck of having congresspeople that one to take. The. Take this This changes or take this agenda. There's, but we cannot rely on the. You know the good intentions of politicians. We really need to have a law in Costa, Rica that says racism is not correct. You cannot target people if you target people because of the race. Then there's going to be caused quizzes and there are. State agencies that are.

"Once again this is Oscar Fernandez and today on the show we put the spotlight on Costa Rica and how the Black Lives Matter Movement challenges the stereotype of Costa Rica as a quote Unquote Switzerland of Latin, America. Any true student of Latin American history knows that the African diaspora has long face struggles for equal rights and social justice in places like Lumbia Brazil. The Dominican Republic etc, etc.. Costa Rica Hand flies under the radar on the struggles for social justice because of its perception as a stable democracy free from the same geopolitical struggles faced by other countries in the Western Hemisphere. But in the struggle for social justice, perception is not always reality. Costa Rica Micro notice. Costa Rica might fly under the radar. And a few problems facing Costa Rican society today might be minor compared to historical problems in other countries in that America. However black lives matter movement has changed the game. There is a new dawn developing forever Latinos. Is challenging the complacency and perception of Costa Rica. Switzerland of Latin America. And so this movement in Costa Rica under the Lens of black lives, matter deserves a new examination of what it means to be an Afro Costa Rican and so witless on the show today is Pamela Cunningham. She's an Afro Costa Rican activist and the CO founder of Costa Rica Afro. She joins us over the phone today from Costa. Rica welcome to Chopin on Cunningham. I are. Are You thinking? Is a pleasure to have you on the show I today. We've been dying to do a show on Costa Rica for a long time. And for the black lives, matter of movement and the momentum that is carried various in America is gives us the opportunity to do so, but before we get into detail about the movement as it pertains to Costa Rica. Let's first begin by talking about. What is your organization? Go Study Afro and the work that you guys do. Of course, so puts the Cup an apple feminist organization. We're focused on providing visibility. Lobbying in favor of the human rights of the Africa getting population, and he really started as A. Response of sorts of Of the exclusion that we felt from the white feminist movement industry. So? We decided to to create our owner. Invasion a lot less structured I'm more focused on results. THAN ON HIGHER So we've been working for the last five to six years of sharing our our knowledge and learning from others both in and outside of academia. Lobbying for change and using social media specialty to provide education and disability to the struggle. Yeah indeed, and that's what brought us to our attention Costa Rica Afro was social media. Let's through the few Costa, Rican. Followers of ours our twitter bodice to your attention, so in light of recent momentum created by the black lives matter movement. How has it perhaps magnified some issues? The African study community that has otherwise been neglected by the rest of the country. Because again you know part is, conversation is not just black lives, matter, but also sort of as a form of deconstructing the myth of Costa Rica's. Shangri law the Switzerland of land America where nothing. Really happens when compared to its neighbors and other historical. You know history historical points inland American history. Correct show. It is true and we. Went compared to our neighbors in Central America or South America. We've had relative piece, right? We don't have an army so We haven't seen civil war since nineteen forty eight. Doesn't. That doesn't. Mean that we haven't had our internal conflicts with ric. Rica's deeply. Racist Society and the nationals ace identity has been created in a position to what is a black or indigent, so the the whole idea of being Costa Rican has been constructed Abban whiteness rate so the. Afro descendants indigenous population amongst others in the country have been ignored or have disability rights so. This this have been issues that have been happening. Since forever but the idea nine countries that you know we don't have this issues. racial problems are problems are outside because. We're all the same rate in Costa Rica. We like to do the. We like to call ourselves because I. we like to call ourselves. Because race, so we are all the same you reality. We're not the black individuals populations have. Less access to help less actors to work to to help services to education to leadership positions. So, and we don't have a lot of data. On on exactly, what are our needs? Because we are not being tracked, we might even track upper clean census rate, so would vishnu momentum. It has generated a lot of questions right, so I look. People have asking themselves This happened in Costa Rica. We have issues of race in Costa Rica. Of course, it has created as well so backlash because some people want to believe that we don't have issue so race. It Costa Rica that racism doesn't. Rate but it has highlighted some some of those issues. It has given us an opportunity to discuss things.

Here I would say for the allergy thing especially if you have one a severe. Sita's casillas very severely allergic to shrimp is to learn more. Say or write it down in Spanish. Have it written down in? Spanish is a good idea. Even though Costa Rica is a terrific country you will see signs in English and you will be noticed like Oh my God all speaks English. Whatever like not ever Costa Rican speaks fluent English. And don't assume that everybody does even if you're gonNA trysted area. It is always good to have it written down especially when something bad important exactly another allies will be the beep patient. You need to be patient here even for me is sometimes it's hard driving. Driving we are Costa Rica's we are very friendly but sometimes service is. We're getting better especially in the government services. Don't expect the same efficiency as you find on North America. You want officiency good at Germany or Switzerland. Don't cut across Rico. They close the Switzerland of central. America will have an army patrols around army yet that makes us race. Butler and we believe it ended up with terms of the itinerary. Talking about Manuel. Antonio are there any other itinerary items you WANNA put or? Did we wrap that up with that? He'll have one week and includes flying date. Don't try to go. To so many destinations don't do they. Are there to there. You will find driving Cobbling it always takes. Longer than what your. Gps will tell you your higher self foul or maybe really like somewhere. You wish you spent more time. I personally like slow travel in so I like to spend a little bit more time to get to know a place rather than two hours here when our there whatever? And you can't drive coast-to-coast in one day. They don't work amend it. I think just for one week is small town of time. But it's enough time where you can get to know to destinations really well. And he won't tire yourself out. You're not going to need another vacation from your vacation. Your family can really enjoy especially you need to take into account you. You're traveling with kids. You know maybe kids will be to tire. You WanNA drive five hours every other day as well for me one week bats like a good day for me and independent like when your flight is out of San Jose you leave the morning. The day of your fly or can leave the day before Because of the airport the airport isn't right in San Jose either. It's a lot of town. I think we stayed in. The airport is located in the province of Allah. Yup their thing is everything is so closed. Hear her thirty minutes from the airport to down. Jose give or take a traffic. The I found Leila was a great place to stay the first. We came in and also the last night. I think that we were on the way out because it was right by the airport in San Jose Airport is. There's a ton of airport hotels around in a lot of them. How free shuttle COP BREAKFAST? So there's a lot of options excellent well as we start to get to some of our. Wrap up questions if you were in the prettiest spot in Costa Rica where he is standing on. What are you looking at two? And they're seriously like both at the top. Sam Your Friend. You can have to sleep okay. Well for me there waterfalls okay. I'm a girl and I love beaches and everything but for me. I like more mountain landscapes in rainforest so the top two for me for the prettiest places that I've been to in Costa Rica. Is The del Toro Waterfall in host. Taro Embryo Seles Day in Bohol. Gua can actually dig one day trip thrown If you WANNA spend a full day on going to Rio. Celeste is a bluer sky. Blue River in the Norio Lucchino National Park is actually not the only St Louis Ver- in Costa Rica but it's the most accessible and the waterfall. It's breathtaking. It's you look at it in photos any something that's real but when you see it with your own eyes you still can't believe it's real good really is real. And it's so picturesque. It's legend that they have that the locals have is that God dipped his paintbrush into this river while he was painting the sky. And that's why the river sky blue and it's beautiful river in. They have a waterfall surrounded by lush rainforests. And you can hike down to the waterfall and then you can hike the rest of the river and you can see the Union of two rivers which is where the beginning of that skied in color comes from Pretty spectacular to see in the in the Del Toro. Waterfall is two hundred seven be for waterfall in an extinct volcano crater in this little tiny town called. Bob Host Toro in this little tiny town is surrounded by two National Parks Apostle Keno National Park in one Castro and so the will Kino's in that area. There are so many waterfalls bottles of Torah in a lot of actually also sky blue but del Toro is so beautiful like others of the extinct volcano and how tall the waterfall is in beautiful gardens? That are all around. That's another favorite of mine. Excellent Jason. Do you have a different answer for me? I Like I love water so I will say down my favorite place in Costa Rica without a doubt is by by taking a boat trip on the bed. Bug All is my number one. That's actually where we take France where we if you come to visit US quiz. We'll take you. There is little Gulf called up by your goal. Were there is a lot of both only access. If you can book through the Mount then you can go. But it's always an accident people get there but now we're way up in the North West corner the corner close to Nicaragua. Yeah actually we live. That marina were close with them Marino. One of the reasons why we didn't like some wanna costume. Only one week airy is that we don't recommend so much driving if you go to different locations if you come here one Augusta everything is I mean. You have to spend the whole week here. I mean that's what we will recommend maybe four days here in two days someone else but I still. Everything is is far here. Unlike the balance that you did of half the time in the mountains half the time of the beach there are as we said some options for the mountains and there are some options for the beach as well so instead of going down to men while San Antonio we could have gone up here we could have gone into the corporate peninsula but I did like that balance of the mixture of the two. Unless of course you're somebody who really just loves mountains or really just loves beaches. Maybe one of the reasons why we choose those two locations as for the week. Eighteen Harry is broadcast is because you can find everything there for families for couples by Solar Fowler's so as just is the Lord munching drive is easy transportation methods. Of course you. Can you know come through when accustomed to the south than go to the meal cashier? I go back and go to the other sites. Of course you can do that. I mean there's no problem actually you will find a lot of pre made itineraries or you can buy a whole package. At the seven days packages Sherpa techniques packages. We have done does with another company that we work and to be honest. It's very very very tiring right job. Driving seven hours remember. Go go go in and as you will to your hotel at maybe seven. Pm The guys UK's tomorrow mortgage at five am. You aren't shaving. I understand why people do the packages in probably there. Are that make that can tailor it or for the pre made one. We did to be honest. I got really frustrated in the last three days. 'cause we were driving six hours and then he's GonNa have the park. And then that's it is the Ron Yeats. Everything was laid this normal. That's how it is in. Some people. Love it they just WanNa go and go over as much as possible. I mean go for it. That's what you WANNA do. See that I'm going to go to Costa Rica and I'm GonNa hit a lot of different spots. I'm GonNa do that in an UN cruise along the coast and let somebody else do all driving on the boat so you WanNa be driving that way in there some areas. Where in Guanacaste say? It's far like to get from one place to another. It's it's a lot of driving and public. Transportation is not very good here but is recommended to get a high car because some of the destinations beaches wanNA custody still bearing rule so he wanted to explore all. You're going need to do a lot of research or on the other. Having gone custody you can also find the most inclusive resorts so you can do it. That way or you can come here to Brio for example that you don't even feel the during Costa Rica. Get OUT OF THE PLANE. Very Airport. Shuttle used to your to your inclusive. You're stayed there for a week. You gain ten pounds the useful bag. You don't even notice that you were English. Regan people live longer. That's they're looking for less fully. Find this 'cause that that is an option here. They do a day trip here and there each but they just wanna eat relax and not think about having to do anything well. I'm going to start to wrap this up. I've got two more questions for you. What is one thing that makes you laugh and say only in Costa Rica? I remember there was one time where I went to take a nap because I was not feeling well. I woke up to an earthquake in that I walked outside my room and there was a sloth claiming on the tree right in front of my hotel room sauce clip go through nurse. Waken sees loss all of the same time span of ten minutes. That was a good customer experience also to ristic wise. I mean also note probably not only in Costa Rica but few world. Ju Can Change Jurors surrenders very quickly. We are right now here. I mean like in this area where we live is surfing down. We are in the dry season so known everything is Brown so we can just drive to two and a half hours and then we can be Dwayne with everything. Intense Green Waterfalls and twenty degrees below and Celsius Dobie like fifteen Fahrenheit. I duNno bus from thirty. Eight to sixteen let. Actually that's happened early this week to us so I will say that we have a lot of micro weather's so if you get tired of the heat us go drive three hours to some this nation and you can just go to city. Everything is very close and he's a big change. Excellent if you had to summarize Costa Rica in just three words.

You catch the wave and turn to laugh. Surf laughed so you're pretty much going parallel on the beach. But going less you serve the face of the of the way. Menarini wave yet so you took stay out before I distracted you to Manuel Antonio on Ios another really good destination for first time. Chandler's families because it's very convenient like seven four lots of hotels at different price points. A lot of restaurants good access good road and they have minimal tonio national park which is now most visited National Park in Costa Rica and it was named by Forbes back in two thousand twelve as one of the most beautiful national parks in the world. Even though it's a small natural park in Costa Rica. Okay it is. Yeah and it's actually. The second most visited National Park in all of Latin America including South America after much would be Jewish. Okay this park is really really good for wildlife and has excellent hiking and some really nice beaches so a lot of people like to go there too while some people like to hike. Some people just want to the beach. Some people take a guided tour so that the guy can point out wildlife and share information about the flora and fauna. There and you can do a lot of other activities very similar to offer Tina beach so you can do sailing tour on boats. They have whale-watching when it's in the season and the season would be in the February or end November. When is the season in Costa Rica has the longest humpback whale watching season in the world? Set the best time to see them would be like November in the minimum Tonio area. Bear on our end of January to March. But it's not as good as August. September yet do ocean kayaking many beaches in the area. You can visit. There's a main growth. That is really nice steak and take a boat tour or go kayaking swap main girl with the estuary. Okay and you you say. Good hiking favorite hike in Manuel Antonio well. The National Park has excellent hiking. So what most people do from. My personal experiences is end. This is what the guided tourists due to go on the main trail which is what they call the sloth trail and they sue playa minimal tonio. Ab thirty minutes and they do that loop so they want from entrance to that beach and then they walk around the other side. What will miss out if you really liking is at the park has four other awesome trails that lead around the really nice viewpoints and when I went hiking I went there by myself once and the park was really really crowded because this park is very popular so it gets really crowded especially on that main trail by veered off. I went on to the last Himalayas and the Poon Joe Trail by myself and I will be only one there. Nobody WANTS TO KNOW HIKE. All the way up there and it's not that hard in the views are beautiful so you're hiking way down to the southern tip of the park actually goes to the northern side hopes. Yeah so the Northern Park. I don't know a lot of people don't do it because they go swimming or Alexa V or not. Want to walk that much. Will you mentioned crowds? Should ask the question of what do you think is the best time to come to Costa Rica? I mean personally as a local. I preferred to rainy sees okay. Why rainy because rainy season here. It is actually Nice on a cold wet rain for us for rainy season. Is You have a beautiful morning and then you got two hours rain in the afternoon which is actually very nice and Winnie is the rainy season. I don't know that it did hence right now but I will say that you can come up culver. November for me doesn't two favorite months even the middle of September to the end of November. That's for me. That's the best time to come while there's no crowds at all because summer on the North America. Well everything's cheaper way. Cheaper prices go down because we'll Green season instead of low season. But it's Colo season pretty much Find everything you don't have to make lines for everything to save money for me. The most important is that everything is so great. I mean if by any chance we got a storm coming because in a way I can get tropical storm whenever you hear a storm in Cuba or the Caribbean site. Sometimes we get affected. We have never been heaped. Decling mean few years ago we got one but it was a big definitely. You have the chance dumb. The green season in. I just don't know about when rainy season is because by dishes at it does vary for the country but on average end of April beginning of May till about beginning December. But they also have we also in July. I would call a little summer. Where dries up a little? It doesn't rain for weeks in. It's like summer. Let's call little summer for all of the country except the Caribbean side. The Caribbean side follows a different weather. Pattern is humid there all year long and their rice month is usually October but it can rain all year long. So it's the Caribbean they. They have different lanes and all that stuff over there so they have a more temperate but year round possible rainfall in. October is the best month there. Recently weather has been changing here. We got fade on January. We live on the North Pacific part of the country. Dry Dry spot of the country potus areas of rain on January. Never I never seen that. Oh my God. It's super weird so whether it's been changing here do whatever park you go to the guides are GonNa del all. We used to have this suspicious here. The main dialing this time known evidence moving or Germ Eastleigh very clear. When rainy season was dry. Season was now all Mesh together because there are no clear cut off anymore. Even February Coleraine Mineral Tonio. We'd been there before it clothing everywhere. I stopped in the Caribbean side and lemon and then went up to Parque Nacional Guera when I was cruise for my anniversary one time we went down to Panama. On our way back we stopped in Costa Rica and went up and saw the national park there and we stopped in a rainforest on the way which it was raining. Which people in my bus did complain about? But I believe they get three hundred inches of rain a year or something like that and and part of the coast so I mean a lot of rain. I don't remember exactly three hundred but it was. It was one of those. How can you complain about going to rainforest and finding rain so we also have so many interesting complaints that I'm saving them for a book? Smell even the customer has troppled country. People have this idea that it's super hot and sunny all the time but it is a tropical country. There's a reason it's green. Yeah it rains here in hard well let me ask you this. So we talked about for instance. Make sure that you know whether you can drive all the way to your airbnb or whatever. Are there any other warnings that you would give people just so? They're better prepared for Costa Rica. I mean I have a law I would. My pants are definitely the one that we just mentioned. Goes checking your final destinations in the access if can't afford to rent. Suv need to consider changing your destinations oil mode of transportation. Second ONE IF YOU'RE COMING RAINY SEASON COM prepared with appropriate quarter. Do not throw Fox in shorts in your backpack. You're going to need a waterproof rain jacket. You have expensive camera equipment. You need to bring real waterproof backpack in. I say this from personal experience and losing by hundred bikes from not having real waterproof by back in their mosquitoes. Here mosquito so we need to be prepared for that in. Please put on sunscreen. Always see tourists. They come on the first saying. I think I'll like it winner back home. I'm probably GONNA get some Sun so you don't put on sunscreen our in the gift. Burt toast and in pain for the rest of their trip and I would like to mock people for that. If I had not been one of those we learn from experience in part of the reason is I was on a rafting trip. And you stay cool. Don't realize how much son you're getting exactly the only eight to twelve degrees of the equator. Even when you're in the cloud horse get fifteen hundred meters in origin or that much closer to the sun and you can still get in so. I always emphasize people. Please bring sunscreen. One of my friends came to visit me and her friend got so burn on her first a second day that she couldn't even sleep on her back or her front or anything in she'll just miserable arrest of the time you know. They think that just one apply will ask this thing that I just need to put ten. I'm GonNa Tan and then o'byrne kill off and I'll be ten five but it doesn't work that way when the sun is so and. I think I was smart enough to wear a shirt but I burn my legs. I just wasn't I wasn't paying attention so it is easy to do. You Burn your niece too. Yep probably hear hearts the EH. That's a classic. Do you have any tips? Well it depends well if you come with kids so if you have any food allergy. We are learning a little bit more about. Us eats now that I work in tourism. I targeting oldest requirements that you need to travel so for example here. If you need to go to be taking your medications on everything they know the probably. This is very common advice but a lot of people. They try to go to the pharmacy here and they asked for the brand name of the medication. They need. It may not have that brand name there you need another generic basic things things that you will do that. Streak Gore any other CON- three same with food. I mean if you have a lot of allergies bureau allergic to my case. I'm allergic.

"The amateur traveler talks about volcanoes and rainforests Whitewater rafting and zip lines bird-watching beaches and Slavs as we go to Costa Rica. Welcome to the amateur traveler. I'm your host Chris Christensen before we get into this week's episode. I do want to say something about the corona virus epidemic. Which is what's going on as I record this. I also put this in the amateur traveler facebook group but I know that. Not all of your in there. I want you to know what my plan is. So many of you I am sheltering in place and I am not traveling because it's the right thing to do these days but I won't be blogging and podcasting about coveted Nineteen Ama- traveler. I'm not a medical expert. You don't need my opinion. We did do one episode of this week and travel. Because it's news but that's really all I'm going to do about this and I'm really of the opinion that this will get better. I don't know how long but sometime we will get back to work. And things will return to normal and travel will return to normal whatever normal looks like and so. I'm going to be looking ahead. I'm going to be helping you dream of better days. I know for some of you. That's not what you're looking for now. If you unsubscribe because this isn't the right time for you to be thinking about travel no problem. I understand but that's what we're going to be doing here and I just didn't want to catch you by surprise it's not that I'm totally clueless about what's going on that being said. Let's talk about Costa Rica. I'd like to welcome the show. Sam and Jason. From my ten feet dot com who've come talk to us about Costa Rica Salmon and Jason. Welcome to the show. Hello Chris Thank you for having us and Salmon Jason our friends. I think we met in Philippines on a press trip. I WANNA say ten years ago so I don't remember exactly when we met the first time but someone actually pitched me doing Costa Rica but two of the bloggers that I know. Who are the experts on? Costa Rica Are Salmon? Jason and they make a living basically from this and from helping people figure out what to do in Costa Rica's so let's start with the obvious. Why should someone go to Costa Rica? Costa Rica offers a lot of things to do for people who want to experience nature because Costa Rica's known as a very ECO friendly sustainable destination. It's very green country in every sense of that word yes exactly. They protect over twenty five percent of their land actually in so for anyone who wants to experience nature whether they love I watching or hiking or even a beach vacation to see a volcano experienced rainforest particularly has got it all in that sense and when it comes to countries in Central America Latin America is very safe. It's very popular for travelers in the US in now more in Europe and they're very friendly people in they're very welcoming so Costa Rica's even a destination for people who have never been outside traveled internationally because of the excellent. And what kind of are you going to recommend for someone who let's say it's their first time in Costa Rica? I most people they land in San Jose. International Airport in this is because this is the biggest international airport so they have more flights schedules. And then for the first time itinerary something I would really recommend is and then you go to Fortuna I in La. Fortuna is a city what they call northern lowlands and it is home to the. Arina volcano very close to lake are now which is the biggest man-made Lake in Costa Rica and also a lot of rainforest around and so a lot for tonight is known as the adventure capital of Costa. And you can do pretty much all the adventures you could once. They're so whitewater rafting canyoning zip-lining very popular hiking because of the rainforest is nature. There's a lot of wildlife can see a lot of birds monkeys and floss and it's a very good destination for families or for Solo travelers. Because you find everything from ten dollars. Abed a night till eight hundred dollars a night so you have super budget to the super luxury. We'll I in. This is what we did when we were in Costa Rica. The first time you didn't stop us in San Jose to do anything and that is pretty typical for Costa Rican itineraries. Well craze the reason why well Waco streak is. We don't do that well. Actually the government is trying to make the capital Prettier Bad the truth is that the traffic is terrible. Whenever you work the tourism industry you don't one on a generic going through San Jose because traffic jams are getting very bad. I believe that every single city on the world is having this problem so ideas or packages that you find like San Jose jewel probably stay one or two nights and then you might see one or two activities on the whole day and I will say the main reason is the traffic well and I was not surprised that you did not suggest that but I did want to point it out because somebody may be looking at an itinerary that somebody else creates for them and I wanted them to know the difference. Well now that you mentioned that this is actually something that I have noticed. Recently especially with people from Mexico. We got a lot of direct flights from Mexico in a notice that a lot of Mexicans in some sense they liked to stay in San Jose and they do a lot of one day. Trips is a lot of time on the buzz things that I don't actually recommend by opinion is a waste of time. I mean if you WANNA go to a game is not fun to spend four hours in the boss three hours and then go back for our sped. Believe it or not. This is a new thing we saw last year so meant that I was with a lot of people asking in. Actually we work with companies that do one day tours and many people they liked to be in bosses nowadays. I don't know whoever's listening to this podcast if you love to stay in a positive things house in one day trips but we don't recommend you to do that. The only things that I can think of that are close enough that I would do that. As there's a couple of the coffee plantations that I think are close and the river rafting in that area is fairly close to center. Say but I can't think of anything else that I really would want to see in Costa Rica. That San Jose would be where I would base myself. I think it's a lot of people they come to Experienced two major because it doesn't really sell itself it city city life economic in the city. They do have some nice cultural sites. They have a national theatre. They have a few really nice museums. But it's so small. It's not a big city so honestly see the city in a day and you can go to the neighborhood. That has a lot of good restaurants. You can get really good feel for in just one day and you don't need more than that really as if you were in New York City Madrid or not as much to do which I think is part of the reason why a lot of Timorese. Un in San Jose many sleeve. Right away yeah. I don't think I've been in San Jose. Costa Rica twice. So yeah so unless if you are dying like really really keen on experiencing city life you really don't have much time and something to mention Kristie. You mentioned the Quad River. Which is the most popular Whitewater rafting? The we have here in Costa Rica. A lot of people what they do is they take that tour as a way of transportation so for example. If you're planning to go to La Fortuna or you're planning to three Korean site so he's very very very common people book the Touri- Apple say but they ask to be drop off either for tuna or decree inside or they can bring you back to say but that will save you now your dad with many other attractions if you go to well. In this case the EPA quad as is closer Korean site. So from that location you can go through two different locations so the Costa Rican tourism industry. They know that so. What they do is is that it's transferred tour with four or five hours activities. Very bubbler any works very well here. Sure can do. The two are from laugher tuna or the Caribbean works. Both ways so very much like you can take a whole day for instead of traveling traveling in rafting brand. And we've done to shows I should say to other episodes.

"Yeah I if there's a ten dollar bill on the floor I'm going to pick it up you know and so I we went to the FBI and And found the back. Pack that my son had purchased so I kind of knew something about you know done some investigative work and I met with the FBI and they said the same thing that they'd always said that they can't do anything. Unless there's you know a body and they can't get involved with Costa Rican criminal crime unless there's a body or or a ransom request and And so we left the FBI. And I picked up my phone security and there was a a message from Costa Rica and I called the number and it was the consul general that the embassy and they said Roman the body has been found nearby does Brazos and we think it may be your son. There was some camping gear there. Wow so this is like right as this Daca. This documentary series is GonNa Come Out. That purports to have solved the crime and in fact this gives a whole different picture. What happened next. Well Yep that was a Thursday that we were at the FBI. If I remember right and Sunday three or four days later is going to be the first episode of the show and so you know of course. I fly down to Costa Rica immediately. I want to get to this site Before they start bringing stuff up and the next day on Friday. The embassy sends me some texts and it's their photographs of the equipment that they've found at the site and sure enough. It's all my son stop you know like. I'd made a poster of equipment that he would have had as a like a reward poster and there were the green shoes that I put on the poster and there was the sleeping pad that was yellow on one side and silver on the other. There was that in one of these photographs and and there was the backpack that I'd found that he'd bought a north face store and there was a blue headlamp that I'd given him in Anchorage and there was the compass that I'd given him in Anchorage and there was his stuff and it was him so he flew down there and I hurried into the jungle and sure enough. They're bringing up his remains and as we walked out with all of this stuff and we got to Brazos. Well there was the production company you know wanting to get the story. And and the producer. He was dumbfounded he was. I don't think he ever said it but I sense that he believed it was my feeling. I'm you know I could be wrong. But it was my feeling that he believed that there was some sort of conspiracy here right. It's just too convenient. That right. Is Mike Terrific documentary is gonNA come out this new surprise evidence emerges you went to the site? You want to just describe being there what you saw and how did you feel you and your wife? Sure you know I I went there twice. I went there once The day that they were bringing the remains if I wanted to get there before they brought everything up. Because I wanted to make sure I wanted to see for myself and evaluate for myself had been an accident or if he'd been murdered there and it was in a Shallow Canyon That was only about you. Know half a mile from where I camped multiple times Looking for him. It was in the same drainage that I'd hiked up and down. I'd never got up that high because there are waterfalls between lower down and where he was found that I didn't pass but it was really close and it was off trail and it was in a place. Nobody would really go to. He was found by a minor who was looking for. I think mine was looking for him. Because what happened is in the run-up to this. Tv show the channel was running. You know like trailers of this. Tv show that was coming in the trailers. Were these really gruesome reenactments of what everybody thought was the murderer of my son so there would be like you know minors with bloody machetes and a and a young man face down in the creek. All this sort of you know titillating. Buzz creating recreation and the people in the village toes Brazos this. They were making their village. Look like a bunch of murderers and they are trying to start up a a tourism sort of economy there. Because they're right on the edge of Corcovado and this guy this minor I think the locals encouraged him to go into the jungle and look harder because This show is going to make him look bad when you and other. Investigators looked at the remains and the articles. That were there. What did they tell you about whether he might have been the victim of islands? Well there was a A forensic anthropologist who worked for the only hold up and she had told me at the site. 'cause I met them as they were like. You know fifty yards walking up from the site and the site was the bottom of this canyon. The big tree fall in the middle of the Canyon and all of his stuff at kind of collected in this trefor and they came up and she said Yeah. We looked at the bones. And there's no sign of trauma there was there were no. Michetti hack marks on the bones. There were no like bullet fractures and and it didn't look like there had been any trauma to the bones and another ranger. Who had was carrying up his gear and it was a very emotional point. Because I'd been for two years I've been looking for my son and And I you know I hope for the best but I was expecting the worst. And then here was the worst and he was dead and And it was a really painful moment but at the same time like in this sort of Deep Valley of grief I felt like we were on a little hill. Top of hope in the sense that on this little hilltop at least we knew what had happened when I I. It seemed like he hadn't been murdered. I can't see why somebody would have murdered him in the bottom of the Canyon And it looked to me like maybe a tree had fallen on him or one of the Rangers said they thought that. A snake bit numb. Because they found a fair lance down there and fertilizes. You know they. They live in the same area small area their whole life. They don't go very far so Fertilizers kind of Viper. Their Koschnick Right. Yup It's a very. It's kind of sneaked kills more people in Central America than any other kind of snakes. So that made sense to me but when I looked at is like this big stove the reed had and it looked like. He'd made a camp like you know his his compass was not around. His neck was laying on a log and it had the bearing to where he was headed. The Real Chloro- and his queen tarp was outside of his pack and his headlamp was out so it looked like he'd made camp his phone pad was out and stove. He'd had a stove out with a cook pot but the stove Cooked camping stove the burner head had been snapped off as if something heavy had broken it and similarly the canister of fuel had a huge dent in it like a real like like a log at hit it is a shallow y debt and so it seemed to me that maybe a log had fallen there was all of his stuff was underneath of this. This the the crown of a tree rainforest tree and another critical piece of it is that his passport and money were still there right so he hadn't been robbed right. Yes Oh Ken said well. I'm only going to believe that. It was an accident if his money and his passport or their insurance if they were there. Roman dials. Book is the adventurer son. We'll talk some more after a break..

"Right on the border of the park there was an American woman who was smothered in her house. And her I pod and iphone were stolen and then there was to us Austrians buying gold and then selling golden does Brazos and and somebody You know murdered them and stole their car. And you know dismembered them and buried them in In the sand and then actually lived in their house and In Costa Rica. You can't have a murder conviction without a body and so even though everybody knew this guy had done it and it turns out. He's like Pasta Laura's uncle or something it turned out that this guy had had actually killed him and when a tourist found the remains washed out of a sandy beach where creek changed his path and they were able to arrest this guy. So you're at this place and you're trying to get into the park Over the objections of the authorities at times under threat of arrest when you can to surge at one point they arranged for helicopter search was. Was this helpful. Well you know I didn't turn it down At all because I knew that if it were me and I was lost and broken in a soggy wet ten eating lizards in the jungle and I heard a helicopter flyover. I would know that they were looking for me and so I agreed to it And I actually flew in it for. I don't know less than an hour. Maybe half an hour and flying around the park. I mean it looks like it. Looks like somebody took a sheet of notebook paper and crumpled it up in their hands. And that's how you know rugged the terrain as and I looked down in the forest is tall and it's multi-layered and there was there'd be no way to see somebody there and I knew there were people down there. There were there were minors in their farmers and there were tourists. And you never saw anybody and I was had my nose pressed to the glass looking for my son hoping maybe he dragged himself out onto a creek bottom or onto a landslide. Someplace that I could see him but I didn't see him and it made me realize that I needed to be in the jungle on foot looking. So you're there for weeks and with the passage of time you know he doesn't turn up and you don't find him What were your emotions like at this point? Well you know You know here's there's a lot of different things happening is I. You know I went down there and I was sure I was just going to. I was gonna find him and bring them home alive. I I been involved with rescues before and brought people home and I. I thought this was going to be one of those in his time past and I realized that You know he was less and less likely I was gonNA find him alive and But I still you know it's it's like It's like it's a continuum it's not a it's not a on and off switch where you go from hoping he's alive knowing his dad and And even after six weeks down there I thought he could still be alive and we were still looking. Um when I returned around. Christmas time A few months later You know of course my wife and I were hopeful that maybe he would. He just left the country. I went to Panama to look for him. I thought maybe he would have just sort of abandoned US somehow. But at the didn't add up some people said Oh he's just doing his own thing and he doesn't need to tell you but I we couldn't see our son doing that but he was still hopeful he was alive and just having some adventure somewhere else and it wasn't until you know I heard from the embassy that they'd found his his gear. There's a lot of his gear. That was missing that I'd never found anywhere and it turns out that had been at the hostel all the time all along a big backpack that he'd bought in Mexico that I was not familiar with. That was actually next to the yellow bag and inside. This big backpack. Were a bunch of things that I knew. He needed for Not For this jungle camping but for other things and so it just deepened. The mystery of what had happened to him. Right after. You'd been down there for a while you finally your your wife. Peggy was in Alaska. Working the phones trying to get public officials in the US seeing if there was a way to get US military help which it seemed. There was a prospect for but didn't pan out and you finally emailed her and said I'm coming home and she said no right right. Yeah I mean I was I you know. You know I'd looked in the jungle and I finally gotten some permission and You know I'd never asked. I didn't the idea of the military help wasn't my idea was other people and And I wasn't going to say no I just. It seemed like a good idea and I wasn't going to say no but All I wanted to do was go down there and look and when I couldn't find him I was kind of depressed and I I. I didn't know where to look and I had to go and I when I was in the jungle always hope while when I if I go back to town maybe he's shown himself and he's there and then when I was in town I'd be like God. I can't be here in town. I gotta get back in the jungle and it was a it was a difficult time and I guess I was just sort of overwhelmed by a month of looking and not finding and I wanted to head home. I missed my family and but my wife was. You know know you gotta stay down there. And then she came down to help. Yeah I got the only that she needed to go there and follow the route this. Her son had described and try for herself to find him right absolutely. Yeah I mean I you know I. I'm reading a book right. Now where people actually disappeared wilderness. All over the United States kind of at a relatively frequent rate. And so you know for us to go and actually look. It was very helpful. I mean I would if I whenever I couldn't look I felt helpless and I was much more depressed But when I looked I could feel like I was actually doing something and I. I know that it was good for her as well. Roman dials book is the adventurer son. After a break he'll talk about how the search for his son changed.

Da Investigator who would conduct a criminal investigation so you agree to sign a contract with them because it seemed as it might be helpful in getting at the truth as it turned out they couldn't get permits from the Costa Rican authorities to get into the to the rainforest to search so the focus became the criminal investigation and this investigator. A Carson. At one point gets you in a room with cameras rolling reveals that they think they have solved the case and they tell you what happened. What did he tell you well It actually wasn't even in a studio. It was in a hot stuffy Kind of Open Air Room at noontime. In the middle of the day it was ninety degrees up there and it was like one hundred percent humidity. This is in Costa Rica. It was in Costa Rica and I had just flown back from Alaska. And they were all excited the producers and the director. We've we've got really important news for you. People have been working hard to get information. And we're going to give you the whole lowdown here come on up and so I went up and there were like three cameraman and bright lights and Carson sitting at this table and and Ken sitting at the table and they put me between them and and Carson says look. This is really hard to tell you. But we've found out that your son was abducted by miners and then he was murdered. And he he he ause he said. This is the hardest part to tell you. He was Dismembered and fed to the sharks in the ocean and it was. All you know predicated on the Polera story is what he said and I was just shocked because here I had come down and you know I signed up for this. Tv show hoping that they would be able to help me but instead all they had done a sort of stage. This really kind of dramatic moment. Where like on live you know with the cameras rolling. They had this expert Investigator you know. Tell me that my son had been murdered and dismembered and fed to sharks and all I could think of is you know. Oh no another pot lower story. This is not. This is not the guy that I want so it felt really exploitive right there right. You know you you you do write that. There were times after being sold told so many times. It's Potter Laurie. He was involved in the murder. And you just don't know what like a lot of parents don't know what your kids were up to. Was there a point at which you doubt yourself and came to believe them will absolutely I mean I? You know I'm I'm wrong a lot of time this whole search I was wrong over and over and over again and maybe I was wrong about my son. Maybe he'd been lying about all the things that he'd been doing. Maybe this the person that I thought he was wasn't who he was and he was a different person. Who would be with Pot Laura on a trail outside of the park? Not doing what he said he would do so I had to I. Did I doubted myself? I embrace this idea and I carried that story forward They eventually got pat. Laura into a kind of hot or a cabin in the Costa Rica and with hidden cameras recorded an interview with him in which he tells a story that he took Your son was with your son in them and they were in the presence of these illegal miners and then pot. Laura ran away before they did whatever they were going to do. So it wasn't exactly clear or conclusive and it was certainly not the only version he had told. It's kind of funny because I did. I was pushing the story and I even told the story to the only Hoda who's the head investigative organization in Costa Rica. One of their the FBI kind of right. Yep exactly and then I I mean I went down on multiple trips with the Ohio and And the police and In the Park Rangers looking for a body on pot to Laura trail so to speak where we thought it would be and we went on the secret trail. That the Guidos these miners who are supposedly killed my son and Butler story was always changing. But we chased all these leads and found nothing and the show was about to come out and my My wife and I were to Washington. Dc kind of in a last ditch effort to sort of get the FBI to kind of get involved and again. This is stuff that I was always I? I didn't. I wouldn't have thought to do this but other people were encouraging me to do it. You know And and I and my wife you know and it seemed like a good idea..

"From foreign policy Unser Wellman. And this is first person this week climate change. After thanksgiving. The Trump administration released the government's latest climate change study, the drop move been quiet. But the report was a blockbuster that congressionally mandated report from thirteen federal agencies says climate change could shrink the US economy by hundreds of billions of dollars by the end of the century. The report also warns of President Trump's response. I don't believe it. No, no. Here's you his long rejected the widespread scientific consensus on the issue. The climate change is due to human influence his stance puts him at odds with his own government's report and the position of much of the world last year, he decided to pull the United States out of the Paris climate agreement a coalition of one hundred ninety five other countries. So we're getting out, but we will start to negotiate and we will see if we can make a deal that's fair. And if we can that's great. And if we can't that's fine. A new U N report. Meanwhile, says the world has only twelve years to stem rising temperatures or face serious risk of drought floods extreme heat climate related deaths and devastation for the natural world. The message is that countries will need to cooperate. We don't have a top down agreement with potus. It's both them up that they need to take collaborative and coordinated action. If we're actually going to achieve a goal of one point five degrees warming, well, some European countries. Like Norway have set forth rigorous goals for reducing their carbon emissions. The country was one of the most embellishes plans might surprise you. It's Costa Rica, one of the leaders behind this push has been Monica Araya. She's the founder and director of Costa Rica Limpia that Spanish for clean. It's a citizen group that promotes clean energy. We reached her name. Stor damn. So monica. I'm really curious about why carbon neutrality and green issues was a priority for Costa Rica, given how much of a struggle. It's been in so many countries around the world. Yes. And it is a question that I have asked myself many times why is it that already in the nineties? We have twenty years of experience taking care of our natural capital. So we have to go back to the seventy s at a time where developing countries where pretty aggressive in terms of their developmental policies on in our decade where there was conflict and the environment was not a priority in Latin America, why is it that some people in my country decided that it was a very good idea to create national parks and to protect them. I personally attribute that to the fact that we grew up in a country that saw it south as different because we did not have an army does that mean that defense spending. Therefore that money was available to look at in terms of environmental protection. Why would? The army or lack of an army enable the country to see itself in green context. It is a strong message to country. You know, when you say we're not going to have an army, even though the rest of the world has an army so already very in forty eight forty nine. There was a sense that you had to create your own vision. Even though we were small even though it was different from others. We have to create our own pathway at the time in the late forties. It wasn't the environment. That really created a sense of purpose. What did was the notion that we had to invest in our social welfare and that at the time meant schools, and it men hospitals because people needed safety net's? There was a sense of social welfare because people like my parents went to pilot school. There is you know, public education is a right in Costa Rica, and is embedded in the. Constitution and at the same time, if you are in Costa Rica, and you are sick. They hospitals will probably take a long time to take you. But they will take you for free. I also believe that the connection between not how India army and having more resources is that the sense of safety net..
