"Do whatever you can to get patagonia. Bill maher aid. Everyone we took we took so we said we're gonna take my if they come. We're taking my parents back either. A love it. They did when our buddy mike came down. We're like we're taking mike here. He's going to love it he did they. It's a special place. It just checks all the boxes and we absolutely loved it and it was a number one dining experience in costa rica. for sure and spoiler alert will probably find its way onto our best meals of twenty twenty one. So whatever you can do get to patagonia the mar- i know. We spent a lot of time on food if you guys. You're still listening. You probably don't care because you love food too and you love travel and you've been thinking. They haven't done a destination diary in in almost two years. So we're making up for it here. We want to get into drinks. A little bit of your domain. I wasn't drinking that many cocktails. Nor do i drink coffee. But there are everywhere in tamra. No you can get cocktails some better than others And there are some really good coffee shops as well. So let's start with cocktails and drinks and stuff like that anywhere that you would definitely recommend or or places that you remember having above average cocktails so as we mentioned dragonfly was is an amazing restaurant. They have great cocktails also. I had margaritas at a few places and most places that were on our. I think every place that was on our list would have good cocktails like we went to a few places like we went to this one place. Johnny tamarin does which is on the beach. It's good for kids. The food is very like average pub type food and wings. Not good we got yet. They're happy hour. Margarita was not good at all so but most places that we wouldn't you that were nicer places. They all had great cocktails. Yeah panga we. We mentioned pangasius place. Happy pangloss was the date night spot and they have two for one cocktails most of their cocktails or two for one happy from happy hours like four to seven every night so like you can find those deals and most cocktails typically will run you between four to six box so that is where stuff is cheaper in the us. Cocktails and wine and beer is usually a little cheaper at these restaurants and you would pay in the us especially cocktails. Have you go to a nice restaurant and get a cocktail pay. Twelve thirteen fourteen bucks here. Probably the upper limit is like ten and most are in that like five to six dollar range and you know. There's a lot of good wine at the restaurants. They have a lot of south american wine. Think that's the majority like even if you go to the grocery stores that's kind of the bulk of what you will find a south american wine so it's good wine and yeah. I mean at three to five dollars or sometimes if it's happy hour you know like two for five. It's great it's great deal for sure Coffee is costa rica's known for coffee. One of the you know. What would you say one of the main coffee regions of the world and for good reason. There are some pretty cool coffee shops that we've already mentioned here. So why don't you just run through it from a coffee perspective. Not like the coffee shop but where has call. Yeah so the noriko which we've been our favorite. They have good coffee good. They have their own beans. Rose and you can buy and it is very good. I would say that their execution of doing a lot air cappuccino wasn't my favorite. I got a pore over once there. It was good as pour. Overs are not my favorite way to have a coffee. i really liked. Have lots as or cappuccinos. All the coffee snobs just put their noses in the air. I guess i mean yemen. Poor over i guess. What do i know about is the i guess. I know a lot of people who love coffee. Just get a pour over. That's what i meant obvious coffee. Snobs which if you are good for you. But that's like right. So north dakota does that and you know you can choose your being all of that and so that's a cool experience to do and they're beans are really good center rita. He's just average really average coffee. You know whatever but the number one spot and the spot beans in my opinion are the best. I bought a huge bag to bring home. Is tim marino coffee. Roasters the only problem with this is. It is not in downtown toronto. Now that being said you can walk. You can walk. It'd be live. Maybe a mile walk in and i wouldn't recommend doing it like with kids in a stroller because again no sidewalk. You would also take a taxi. I mean literally if you have a car a golf cart no issue. It's two or three minute drive out of town. That's very close. It's across the street almost from the huge expensive but really nice grocery store the best best grocery store that i liked job at mocatta which was just like shopping in the. Us had everything you could possibly want. It's right across the street from there. So it's a little bit of a mission to get to but not if you're willing to walk or if you have a bicycle or if you have a car or golf cart and i have to say renting golf cart. Superfund we didn't do it but our friends did it. And it took us around for like an hour one nine. It's really fun to have gulf guard cart. Were are coy. Did with golf cart. Rouses like fifty dollars. Yeah so at that point and you can only go certain you can go to tampa roasters. You can go over to like lancaster right. And that's kind of your limit because anything else is too far away but you. I mean you're paying the same prices a car so yeah or more so i don't know who listen whoever's on the golf cart. Things knows their supply and demand. Because i saw fifty bucks. I thought this is crazy. And you get a car for thirty bucks and a cargo obviously anywhere so but hey it was fun and maybe they'll cut you a deal if you get it for a couple of days or what have you. But yes. golf cart easily can get to tama. Coffeehouses and tama. Coffee roasters is worth going to. If you like good coffee make the trek out there. Same as we saw with patagonia get a car. One there to and go to some of these places that we mentioned. We're going to get now. And why don't we just get into those day trip places that if you have a car for a couple of days but you wanted to come back to tamarind each night you can easily do that. That's the beauty of tom. Renault's it's so centrally located there are i mean. I'm trying to count like probably twelve different beaches. You could go to from tamra no for like within half an hour. 'cause there's always like little inlets and they're all different so let's run through a few of those that that we recommend people go to just for some day trips..

"rica" Discussed on Extra Pack of Peanuts Travel Podcast

"Rica now because it was our first time there and before we went. I didn't really know very much. About costa rica and having been there for three months. It really feel like that a second home but almost like hearing that now sure you do obviously dreams about living in a lot of places around the world but i think costa rica is maybe an attainable dream for that at some point in the future but yeah just interesting like maybe it's just because it's been so long since we traveled and took a trip and experienced somewhere new in another country but it feels really nice to be doing this destination diary. Yeah yeah and again. We didn't know that much. We'd been told the tamarind was a a cool little surf. Town had the amenities we needed. You know we had said to our friends at had traveled there and travelled through central america. First i'm actually going to central america. We said we want something. That's convenient by the beach. Able to serve good weather and it doesn't have to be the cheapest place out. There and cameron no fits all those bills all those Including not being the cheapest place out there. It is certainly not the cheapest place in central america. It's cheapest place in costa rica but for us it didn't that didn't matter at this point we weren't going for the cheapest we were going for something that was had a good liveability and tamarind does so to get their hour and fifteen from liberia. Three four hours from san jose shuttle from liberia. Airports about eighty bucks from san jose. It's a couple hundred you could take bosses and stuff but it's gonna start costing money. Yeah or yeah because your sister was thinking of coming from panama just the next country over and she was like i can only get flights into san jose and the transport from their to timber. Indo is tricky. Yeah so one thing you might want to consider if you are coming for a short time is running a car or a long time. But i'll explain why the time you know because renting a car. Isn't that cheap there for us. It broke down now. This was during high season so it broke down to about thirteen hundred dollars. A month is about three hundred dollars if you did it weekly a little bit as well was like three hundred fifty a week and a lot of that is because you have a twelve dollar a day mandatory insurance. I don't want to get into in the weeds but just know when you go on car. Rentals dot com or some of these sites some of those prices. You'll see say like two dollars a day three dollars a day all that so awesome. They're not usually including the twelve dollar day. Mandatory insurance That you do have to get through the government so just know that when you see these really cheap prices you're going to have to add twelve dollars a day onto that not prohibitively expensive if you're getting a cheap car rental. We need an suv. We needed seven seats because the kids my parents. So that's why ours is around thirteen hundred dollars a month. If you've got a car maybe you could get away for like what had six hundred seven hundred dollars easily. Have a car but if you wanna do road trips i would say it's better to have menu can easily. Oh hey car. Car is opposed to an suv. Because we were just talking about how. There's a lot of dirt roads. I think you'd be more comfortable having an suv or even like a four wheel drive depending on what type of road trips. You're doing Because some of the roads are really difficult to travel on. Yeah just just more comfortable to be sitting higher so the cars are not cheap in the car. Rentals are not cheap. But if you're coming and you're factoring in especially if you're coming from san jose and it's gonna be a couple hundred dollars each way on the shuttle. A car might make sense for you now. Do you need a car in tamarin. Not at all. If you plan on just staying in tamarin do everything. If you're staying in tim. Rondo is completely walkable. So we stayed at the sunrise condos. They are right across the street from the beach. I mean a two minute. Walk max from the beach. Plus you could walk to the main areas with restaurants and bars and stuff like that in five to seven minutes so one of the benefits of tamarin verse other places you can get around just walking very easily now. The sidewalks with a stroller and tricky tricks. And it also depends if you bring a stroller that has bigger wheels we brought you know like really collapsible small wheeled stroller and it still was fine. It was just a little more challenging on the bumpy and on the dirt roads. But that's only for if you have really little kids. We had friends down there who had kids that were older than ours and right now we're walking everywhere and no big deal. So yeah if you're saying justin in no. You don't need a car so if you wanna do day trips one of the things you could do is. Let's say you're going and again everyone's trip is different. But let's say you're going for two weeks and you say i'm going to do a week in tampa and then a week taking these trips. You know you would certainly not need a car. You could get around walking. They also golf carts which is a good way. You go explore the town a little bit and just make it easier. Yeah and also about renting a car. You can rent a car right in timor window so you. There's two different places. I think that how all of the big name Rental companies and so. He decided that you wanted to take the shuttle and only rent the car for a day or two days or something. You can easily do that. Walkable right in tim rondo. It's such a great little town because everything is right there but there's still a lot of stuff to do and eat and see which will be talking about. Co yeah searchers base. What you wanna do on running your numbers and saying doesn't make sense. Get at the airport or not. You know we had for the three months we were down there. I two months. We didn't have a car and my parents came the last month. We did get a car for that whole month. Both were fine experiences. Obviously a car gives you a bit of freedom. A few of the things we'll talk about. You will need a car to get to or you could take a taxi if you just wanted to do them so again. We both ways and it was really okay both those ways now as far as staying because this is even in the town of smallest tamarin before we went we were fortunate enough to have everybody jamie on the ground there who introduced us to another guy who's lived there for eighteen years because it's a little hard to get a.

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.

E-Eggs Track Turtle Traffickers

"Take note. If you're thinking about stealing eggs from the nests of sea turtles on the beaches of costa rica. well you may wind up getting more than you bargained for because researchers have combined. Gps technology with three d. printing produce. Decoy eggs that look and feel like real turtle eggs but can track where traffickers go when they swipe these endangered embryos the egg saving efforts are mapped out in the journal. Current biology some finds sea turtle eggs to be a delicious seasonal treat. Others think they're an aphrodisiac. Which has produced a thriving illegal market the mock turtle eggs were crafted in response to something called the wildlife crime tech challenge a program sponsored by the us agency for international development. Scientists led by kim williams kyanne of paso pacifico conservation organization device the decoys. They drew their inspiration in part from popular tv. Show says paso pacific executive director. Sarah ostrom kim's idea to put a tracking device into the league came from an episode of breaking bad where the police hit a. Gps transmitter in a shipment of raw materials for methamphetamine lab. The first challenge was getting the eggs substitute just right. We started with the size and dimensions of the turtle. Egg trying to figure out. How much do they weigh. What's their texture. How often squishy are they. What's their color then. The sorted out the electronics cell phones very widespread throughout the world. And we realized that if we could just use a sim card and a gps gsm technology. That's used in cell phones that even if a beach was remote from a cell tower if it was headed to a market somewhere would eventually pass by a cell tower. And the decoy aches could transmit to one of these cell towers. Finally it was time for a field test. I was actually the person who put the eggs in the nests. Helen physi- of the university of kent. And so it was really a case of deploying decoys into the nests and seeing if they Happens when they as you get. Taken fiji planted a decoy egg. In one hundred one. Sea turtle nests on four costa rican beaches about a quarter of the decoys got snatched some malfunctioned but others gave trackable signal. One wound up at a bar about a mile away but another traveled an impressive eighty five miles from its nest. Physique kept an eye on its progress from her cell phone and basically was moving further and further inland And eventually it. Stop so zoomed in on on the like google maps basically and it showed me very very clearly that it gone behind a supermarket like some sort of akali seep market loading by kind of area which was pretty suspicious is now really re not reason to really be there unless you unless you're up to up tonight good. The decoy hung around the loading dock for a time before making its way to a nearby residential property the fact that it spent two days in so waiting suggests that it may been handed over to a trafficker who sold it to someone else perhaps even the consumer that really fits we what we know about the illegal trade of xing. Costa rica reunited fanatic. Total information from interview information that exists old door to door and it seems likely that this is what's happened so yeah. We're very happy with that result. We've we've proved the concept that you can actually use these x. fee says. She hopes the decoys which they've dubbed. The investigators can help to really crack down on the illegal poaching of sea turtle eggs and reduce such operations to shell of their former selves.

"That's warmer that allows us to be outside more that allows us to be at a pool at the beach allows our kids to be outside to be breathing fresh air and ultimately as you mentioned the reason we decided on costa rica was that was close enough. We didn't have to be on a lot of airplanes and also we had someone on the ground here to give us that feedback. So that's why. We're here in costa rica. I know a lot of people on instagram. Also asked questions about traveling with kids traveling with toddlers Traveling with kids and covert. And i touched on it a little bit the beginning of the call and i have to say that because cova doesn't really affect children very much. That played a huge factor. Because i've kids. Were getting sick and dying at the same rate as adults. I don't think that we would have taken this trip with our children. We definitely not worse. Yes we definitely would not have of course not yet. of course we wouldn't have but that didn't make me feel better knowing that the kids are are relatively you know not did. They're they're safe right as much as they possibly can be so on the flights it was wearing his mask because he's three and everyone over to had to wear a mask and he took it off when he had a snack and then he put it back on when he was done. And you know we sanitize the heck out of all of us the whole time like you touch something years sanitizer so for me Once we got through that first flight that was really crowded on the second flight from miami. Costa rica. I felt much more at ease. I brought things for the kids. Special cheap little toys that i got from the target. One dollar been sectioned to keep them occupied. I brought snacks. That's another thing. They're not serving you food on any of the flights because of covid. So make sure that you have something to eat and some snacks and some drinks things like that and it really was no. It wasn't that bad. And because i was so worried about covid i wasn't at all worried about traveling with the kids whereas normally i may be like. Oh what if screens for the whole time or whatever. No i was just like. Let's just not get covid. So traveling with the kids was super easy. Part to me in this in this trip in this scenario so If you're wanting to travel with kids. I think that obviously it can be done. And it's not really any harder because of covid in my opinion. Yeah and we welcome anyone's questions or thoughts or opinions about this. We just ask that you be as respectful as possible. They're going to be people out there who i'm sure will not be respectful and will say stuff about us or how dumb we are stupid. We are ignorant. We are in listen. You're welcome to your opinion. That's fine but we did get a really nice message on instagram. From someone who is a doctor asking us about why we were travelling and did it in a very respectful way and we truly truly appreciated that because we do welcome other people's opinions and thoughts and questions and we're just here to tell you to the best of our knowledge and to the best of of our research and stuff what we considered and why we consider doing it. And that's what we just told you here. So thank you guys for listening and thank you so much again. Please feel free. We know this is a sensitive or touchy subject or or just one that you know that there's a lot of questions around and a lot of information that might be misinformation or a lot of information that you don't know who to trust her or what to believe and so this is our first hand account of what it was like and so again if you have questions hit us up at extra pack of peanuts on them with questions thoughts and comments and until next time guys thank you so much for this support as always until next time.

We are just so thrilled to be joined by our imaging nerds colleagues doctors. Eric hut elbow skinny and wild jaber erica.

Costa rica she trained in internal medicine at the cleveland clinic. Where fortunately for us. She couples matched to stay here for cardiology along with mr dr. Eric hut aka jose. Aguirre truly power couple. Erdo will be staying here for cardiovascular imaging fellowship at beyond being clinical and a research powerhouse. Erica is a leader within the program as her classes fell representative erika. Thanks for joining us high. And it's a pleasure to be back. Thank you for that very kind introduction. I gotta say that. It's thanks to my mentors family and friends that i'm where i am today and i'm more than excited to introduce one of those individuals. Although skin on the cardiovascular imaging fellow at brigham and women's hospital he obtained his medical degree from Willing willingness swallow and completed his internal medicine residency including chief year at cleveland clinic and then moved on to cardiovascular fellowship at this institution although not only a spurt clinician and a researcher but also an exceptional mentor and a friend. And i actually met all during my interview at ccf when he was achieved I blame him. For recruiting me and six more latin americans to my residency class all of which actually became very close friends on one. My husband so thank you all for guiding my steps and really molding future so got. Thank you for those kind words. We have great times back into clinic.

What everybody's waiting for the people in gray hair sitting in now. Beautiful offices in universities threatening us web to waiting for them to come up with a verdict every four or five years guidelines versus you taking this down to the level of practicing and cardiologists toward actually in training or early career and disseminating information. Because you can reflect. Shine the light on.

We developed over the past. Maybe thousands of years cardiology and make these structures louis invade democrat.

The new richest person in the world

"Richest guy in the world and he's got a problem and he wants our help last week. Elon must tesla. Ceo became the world's richest person. Beating out amazon's jeff bezos for the title. At least for now and now that he's got more money than anyone else on the planet. Musk has a classic mo money moog problem problem trying to figure out how to get rid of some of that money here. Talking about that is rica. It's teddy schlieffer. Hey daddy hey. How's it going good. Let's let's talk about this very specific problem. That eland moscow has that only the world's richest person can have first of all. Let's discuss How rich elon musk is. What's his his wealth. As of today ish so as of today ash it's north of one hundred ninety billion dollars. It's been over two hundred billion dollars for Sometimes this week and it's largely because of this pretty extraordinary run for alonzo. Main company tesla which has seen its stock. Go up seven hundred percent in county or twenty twenty. So he's had an incredible year which has created this this weird phenomenon where late two thousand nineteen elon. Musk was somewhere around. The twenty billion dollars of net worth and suddenly he's a mere twenty million and suddenly his net worth has ten. Fold whatever whatever word you want to use for that And it's been a pretty extraordinary development. And now you had the situation where He's the wealthiest person in the world and it doesn't just mean there's going to be questions about philanthropy but kind of more broadly. I mean the richest person in the world tends to become almost as avatar for american capitalism. Right obviously people laugh who are upset about income inequality they take the richest person in the world which was once bill gates. And then it was. Jeff bezos now. It's going to be on. Musk and that person becomes a symbol for what's wrong with america and there is so a lot is now going to have this. Sort of new level of scrutiny. That he hasn't had up to date and must someone who has a lot of who generates a lot of attention Already people people love his cars. They love his company. They love paying attention to them. They love to hate him so it's not like he he's like wife lower But but it is a new level of scrutiny and this this level of wealth may not stick around right. It's historically stocks that go up seven hundred percent year don't always retain that level so he may go back to being a mere twenty billionaire at some point but for the for the meantime he's the richest person in the world so How much do you think he intends to give away so musk has said that he basically plans to get rid of all the money in some way or another i mean. He said that he wants to spend Half of his money on problems here on earth and half of his money on problems on outside of earth and specifically to develop a civilization on mars. Musk is obviously also the founder of spacex company. That's trying to do interplanetary spaceflight. But musk has also signed the giving pledge which is something that lots of billionaires have signed to give away at least half of their money either in their lifetimes earned their will but taking a step back. This was all when he was much poorer so to speak. I mean this was. This decade can described as poor when he was a millionaire poorer poorer. And look it's not We'll make light of this this problem but there is this age right now in american capitalism where there are extremely wealthy. People who are accumulating assets and they honestly. I don't really know what to do with it right. They almost become asset managers. Where you know they hire family offices that can get pretty big whose job it is is to basically keep the money from at least not depreciating And it does raise questions about. What should this money be doing. Because if it's just sitting there on some wealth management account you know obviously a lot of the reason why billionaires justify being billionaires is this belief that they're gonna do good with the world so don't tax us too highly. Yeah so let's let's let's talk about that. I mean you you've covered this Several times for recode basically the the billionaires have special problem which is difficult for them to give money away and one is explained pretty succinctly that unless they give a lot away. The money keeps accumulating just through sort of basic interest But and i mean it seems like you could solve that by giving more of it away and it seems like a lot of them are paralyzed about sort of not knowing the right way to put it to work and they end up sort of doing nothing yeah So so where do you think. Musk falls in that is is. He fancied himself. Sort of a you know contrarian Does he have a different plan than the average billionaire. Yeah i mean. I think in a lot of ways he at least has a point of view and claims that he is clear eyed about what he wants to do with it right. Lots of billionaires Succumb to what some people call analysis paralysis. The idea that like. I have no idea what to do with the money. So right i'm gonna do nothing and maybe figured out a musk. Obviously he's about fifty years old. And he's maniacally hard worker That's how he stylized himself so he said he basically doesn't have too much time to think about these things but as someone who signed the giving pledge at least in theory should be giving away a hundred billion dollars which would make it bigger than the gates foundation. This could be theoretically if he falls his philanthropic pledges in letter. At least this could be one of the world's most important philanthropies so like the stakes are pretty damn high.

Im a travel blogger. How do I pivot my business during COVID?

"The travel industry has taken a major hit because of covid nineteen and today's listener. Today's qna wednesday question from jim is spot on. How do you pivot. How do you change how to make something happen. When you took such a blow. I recognize the truth of the matter. The truth of the matter is because of covid. people can't travel or at least depending on the country. You're on the can't travel easily or safely. This is a suction we all say to ourselves. But it's partly true. Can't travel maybe internationally but people can do some traveling like a road trip even if you're in a country like australia where they really are super super strict when it comes to the covert restrictions where the close the borders between states like. You can't leave the for example. New south wales which is a stash rilya when there are a few cases pop up. You know the borders get close but you can travel within new south wales. So let's just define the problem. You can't travel internationally. travel blogger. the world's your choice ter- and there's so much material out there but this is an opportunity for you to create a different stream of income a different Chapter in your business career. Local travel road trips exploring. What's in your backyard. And of course you could start with your own local area but just because you can't go somewhere. Let's say for example. You can't go to australia and Help people in their local area to do some local travel you can curate some content curate. Some ideas from other videos other blogs and serve your audience for example in new south wales in australia. You can go to beaches. You can go to the blue mountains. You can go skiing. In the winter. In kosciusko mountain you can go to byron bay which is scored like a yoga hippie. Beachie vibe you can go. There's so many options within the state and people are hungry for break right so this is another option. Just kind of pivoting your business. Creating maybe books guys videos courses live. Coaching calls summits events where you help people or guide them to travel. Locally is easy for us to focus on problems and not think about. What can i do rather than i can't do. So yes you can't travel internationally but you can locally or you can help people travel locally another thing that comes to mind when it comes to travel blogging. It's like hey. I usually do. Exotic locations like how to go to vietnam for two weeks under three thousand dollars or backpacking around europe. And these are not really options anymore for your target audience. Yes they can't travel now but any of these trips will require planning and planning can be done anywhere. For example nicole took eight weeks and did a bit of traveling in europe and that trip took about nine months. The plan we did with some friends of ours. Jason and carolina zuck with a lot of fun. But there's a lot of coordination especially you want to many countries the different modes of transport. Those flying this train. There's renting cars there's accommodations their sites. They wanna see in each city. There's downtime there's beaches there You wanna shop so it takes time to plan a trip like that and for most people. They're not going to go on a trip. Like i gotta go to europe every day or go to vietnam every day or go to costa rica so they want to make the most and planning is a part of that and in my opinion planning is a big part of the fun of going on a big epic journey. A big trip is a travel blogger. You can really hone in on the planning part the preparation part of actual travel. And that's from the bag of tricks. Of rick steves He really focuses on the planning. You can do the same and you can even do A little bit of a niche thing like budget or luxury and you can even just down a little bit and either do luxury travel or budget travel or to travel in a big group that type of thing and this is actually a good time to do it because you know people are starting to see. Hey maybe we are on the other side of cova. The vaccine is how maybe in six seven nine months. It's possible to travel somewhere. Maybe in a year and that's just enough time to get the planning going to have everything sorted out so when you can't travel it's all planned out. You're all set. You're all excited. You're all packed and you're ready to go so planning is a big part of that so maybe spend some time focusing on that on your block. What to pack Luggage what to buy beforehand. What about travel insurance. These are all ways for you to really have revenue streams where you can do amazon associates and get commissioned when you recommend certain products items.

Im a travel blogger. How do I pivot my business during COVID?

"The travel industry has taken a major hit because of covid nineteen and today's listener. Today's qna wednesday question from jim is spot on. How do you pivot. How do you change how to make something happen. When you took such a blow. I recognize the truth of the matter. The truth of the matter is because of covid. people can't travel or at least depending on the country. You're on the can't travel easily or safely. This is a suction we all say to ourselves. But it's partly true. Can't travel maybe internationally but people can do some traveling like a road trip even if you're in a country like australia where they really are super super strict when it comes to the covert restrictions where the close the borders between states like. You can't leave the for example. New south wales which is a stash rilya when there are a few cases pop up. You know the borders get close but you can travel within new south wales. So let's just define the problem. You can't travel internationally. travel blogger. the world's your choice ter- and there's so much material out there but this is an opportunity for you to create a different stream of income a different Chapter in your business career. Local travel road trips exploring. What's in your backyard. And of course you could start with your own local area but just because you can't go somewhere. Let's say for example. You can't go to australia and Help people in their local area to do some local travel you can curate some content curate. Some ideas from other videos other blogs and serve your audience for example in new south wales in australia. You can go to beaches. You can go to the blue mountains. You can go skiing. In the winter. In kosciusko mountain you can go to byron bay which is scored like a yoga hippie. Beachie vibe you can go. There's so many options within the state and people are hungry for break right so this is another option. Just kind of pivoting your business. Creating maybe books guys videos courses live. Coaching calls summits events where you help people or guide them to travel. Locally is easy for us to focus on problems and not think about. What can i do rather than i can't do. So yes you can't travel internationally but you can locally or you can help people travel locally another thing that comes to mind when it comes to travel blogging. It's like hey. I usually do. Exotic locations like how to go to vietnam for two weeks under three thousand dollars or backpacking around europe. And these are not really options anymore for your target audience. Yes they can't travel now but any of these trips will require planning and planning can be done anywhere. For example nicole took eight weeks and did a bit of traveling in europe and that trip took about nine months. The plan we did with some friends of ours. Jason and carolina zuck with a lot of fun. But there's a lot of coordination especially you want to many countries the different modes of transport. Those flying this train. There's renting cars there's accommodations their sites. They wanna see in each city. There's downtime there's beaches there You wanna shop so it takes time to plan a trip like that and for most people. They're not going to go on a trip. Like i gotta go to europe every day or go to vietnam every day or go to costa rica so they want to make the most and planning is a part of that and in my opinion planning is a big part of the fun of going on a big epic journey. A big trip is a travel blogger. You can really hone in on the planning part the preparation part of actual travel. And that's from the bag of tricks. Of rick steves He really focuses on the planning. You can do the same and you can even do A little bit of a niche thing like budget or luxury and you can even just down a little bit and either do luxury travel or budget travel or to travel in a big group that type of thing and this is actually a good time to do it because you know people are starting to see. Hey maybe we are on the other side of cova. The vaccine is how maybe in six seven nine months. It's possible to travel somewhere. Maybe in a year and that's just enough time to get the planning going to have everything sorted out so when you can't travel it's all planned out. You're all set. You're all excited. You're all packed and you're ready to go so planning is a big part of that so maybe spend some time focusing on that on your block. What to pack Luggage what to buy beforehand. What about travel insurance. These are all ways for you to really have revenue streams where you can do amazon associates and get commissioned when you recommend certain products items. I always say when it's downtime in your business for example in the software world and the bbc world december january notorious for being slow. So when it's slow when you're having a downtime it's a great time for you invest in content. So if right now things are a little slow in your travel blog. This a chance for you to really invest the time in building a youtube channel in writing a book on your travels and why you should travel or where you should travel to travel guides because it's going to take some time for you to create this content publish it put on the world market and by time it's all set and done people will start thinking about traveling again and it's an asset that you can use forever. It's not like you write a book and you only can sell it tomorrow. You could sell it for years to come. and of course it's trout guide. You can use as a basis to sir.

Trump wants $2,000 coronavirus stimulus check

"The covert 19 relief check going to Americans. Congress approved $600 checks in the bill passed this week. The president wants to more than double that he made this announcement in a video released on social media Tuesday night. Throughout the summer, Democrats cruelly blocked covert relief legislation in an effort to advance their extreme left wing agenda and influence the election. Then, a few months ago, Congress started negotiations on a new package to get urgently needed help to the American people. It's taken forever. However, the bill they are now planning to send back to my desk is much different than anticipated. It really is a disgrace. For example, among the more than 5000 pages in this bill, which nobody in Congress has red because of its length and complexity. It's called the covert Relief Bill. It has almost nothing to do with covert. This bill contains $85.5 million for assistance to Cambodia, $134 million to Burma $1.3 billion for Egypt and the Egyptian military, which will go out and buy almost exclusively Russian military equipment, $25 million for democracy and gender programs in Pakistan. $505 million to believes Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Panama $40 million for the Kennedy Center in Washington, D C, which is not even open for business $1 billion for the Smithsonian and an additional $154 million for the National Gallery of Art. Likewise, these facilities are essentially not open $7 million for Reef Fish management $25 million to combat Asian carp $2.5 million to count the number of amberjack fish. In the Gulf of Mexico a provision to promote the breeding of fish in federal hatcheries, $3 million in poultry production technology $2 million to research the impact of down trees. $566 million for construction projects at the FBI. The bill also allows stimulus checks for the family members of illegal aliens, allowing them to get up to $1800. Was each this is far more than the Americans were given. Despite all of this wasteful spending, and much more than $900 billion package provides hardworking taxpayers with only $600 each in relief payments and not enough money is given to small businesses. And in particular restaurants whose owners have suffered so grievously. They were only given a deduction for others to use in business there restaurant for two years, this two year period must be withdrawn, which will allow the owners to obtain financing and get their restaurants back in condition. Congress contaminated at a much later date, but two years is not acceptable. It's not enough. Congress found plenty of money for foreign countries, lobbyists and special interests while sending the bare minimum to the American people who needed. It wasn't their fault. It was China's fault, not their fault. I'm asking Congress to amend this bill and increase the ridiculously low $600. $2000 or $4000 for a couple. I'm also asking Congress to immediately get rid of the wasteful and unnecessary items from this legislation and to send me a suitable bill or else the next administration will have to deliver a covert relief package. And maybe that administration will be me and we will get it done. Thank you very much. Statement recorded by

Drug traffickers fuel deforestation in Central America

"To limit climate change. It's critical to protect tropical forests but fourth preservation efforts in central america face a formidable foe the illegal drug trade narko deforestation refers to deforestation. That somehow can be attributed to the activity of drug trafficking organizations bernardo aguiar gonzalez of the neo tropic foundation of costa rica's studies the problem he says u. s. crackdowns on drug smuggling have driven traffickers into protected forested areas. There they can more easily evade law enforcement then they cut down trees trucks and private planes can transport drugs in and out. You actually can put landing strips that are located in areas that would be hard to detect traffickers also clear swaths of forest for farming and ranching businesses that they create in order to launder drug money. Research shows that in protected areas of honduras. Nicaragua and guatemala between thirty and sixty percent of forest loss is likely associated with cocaine trafficking. So aguilar gonzales says drug trafficking and deforestation must be understood as interconnected problems and solve together.

"What do you call a bat. That only eats fruit. But isn't classified. As one of the fruit bats. One species that fits. That description is thought to live in forests from southern mexico to the north end of south america. But they're so rarely seen that very little is known about them apart from their unique appearance which is why the species is called. The wrinkle faced bat. Many people say that these bats are really ugly but the bird is forget. Biologists forbidden bird. So i think we all agree that they are pretty special. Looking bats university of own researcher. Marco chop his colleague. Gloria guests inger agrees. most bats. Look like you'd little puppies but they have very wrinkly face and it's just a lot of wrinkles everywhere but something else about the males. Maybe an even more unusual facial feature. It's very easy to distinguish between male and female because the males have this funny face mosque using their little bat thumbs. Males can pull up a furry slap a skin to cover their faces like a mask. The bet almost tries to hide its entire face inside of the mosque and people have suspected for a long time that these mosques have something to do with matings but the bats courtship is difficult to study. Because they're so hard to find that is until two thousand eighteen. When chopko i'm guessing Colleague university of costa rica biologist bernal rodriguez herrera received a tip that a group of males had been spotted in a highland forest. His team rush there to record their behaviors using infrared video. Cameras and specialized microphones the objective. Was that we get as much information as possible about these animals and the bat state therefore something like six weeks the animals formed. What's called a lek. Where a group of males hangs out in a small area displaying extravagantly two females an uncommon reproductive strategy and bats. The male start their display by rubbing their fingers together for hours which looks really re it. Eventually they begin to sing even with their faces covered and they do these trails. An echo location calls from net purchase. Detroit sound something like this and then to echo. -cation calls in between central's again. The ultrasound recordings have been slowed down to be in the range of human hearing. Sometimes they put the mess down and up again and then they continue singing. But if another ben approaches they start making noise with their wings. Followed badghis super loud whistle sequence after sequence of sounds the researchers documented one meeting between a male and a female. They think the raised mask and sounds along with odor. Queues may play an important role. In the wrinkle faced bats courtship. The study is in the journal. Plus one many questions remain so researchers returned to the site a year later in hopes of learning more about the elusive bats courtship behaviours. But the bats. Nowhere to be found so you really need to have a lot of luck to learn more about this.

Paprika In Hungary

"Let's start today's travel. With rick steves with the role a little pepper from the new world plays in that tasty cuisine of hungary. Note that today's interviews on paprika galicia where recorded just prior to the global shutdowns pepperoni as the backbone of hungarian cooking as the crucial ingredient in chicken pepper. Cash and hardy hungarian stews from mild to hot. We'll find out why this spicy so central to hungarian identity. How to best buys and pepper on your trip and we're going to learn how you can spice up. Your own meals was well to get this education hungarian paprika. We're joined by to guide tonight studio from hungary. And leonard and george farkas anna and george. Thanks for being here. Thanks for having us thrill to be well. Thank you from coming all the way from budapest a long trip. And we're gonna talk about paprika. I mean when we think of hungary we don't know a lot about hungry sometimes. But we think of paprika. What's the connection actually public. A strong connection because it is actually from the american continent and it was The physician of christopher columbus or columbus who brought it to the old world to i not to hungary of course but to spain that through the commercials of the mediterranean sea it got to the ottoman empire and when the ottoman empire extended its political power to eastern century up. We glad to not only bad things that we also got things like the patrika. What are the coffee so paprika and cuffy came as your time in the ottoman empire in paprika actually from america via columbus actually us. So i like teasing are two members and americans who is. That's why to travel here. Righ- flying through the But i like my publisher hungary. There's something romantic about having paprika in hungary. And why does hungary embrace paprika. What does it mean to hungarian. I have great micro-climate lots of sunshine. And what is very important that when we got the paprika was a hot spice and it was the hungarians who grew the might version of it it is from the nineteen twenties when in a small. Get in sega. It was kind of discovered. And since then if you come to our covid market hall you can always buy tubers the mild paprika and the hot fabric honky now. George when i go to budapest i always go to the big market hall right. But it's the name of that. Hologhan bashar knocking hungarian big market or century. You can't miss it when you're a tornado in credits. The first one out of five actually that they built at the time. And what you're going to find is well everything that hungarian cook would want to find. But certainly find peppers. See when you look for the peppers in the market. Well actually. you're not looking for peppers you looking for paprika is already well there is. It is basically a huge difference because many people don't realize it in hungary. Everything is called paprika. Let it'd be around fat skinny red yellow sweet and hot so i'm a little confused. Then so because Is it a pepper or it is a but we call it paprika but we also called a powder paprika yes because when i think of peppers and my supermarket we've got yellow ones and green ones red ones and that all of that. We call paprika even if it's Any shape really And then you have. It already powdered. If you're looking for the paprika that you cook with powdered yes okay. So it's a very unique technique to powder because One of the things that you have to be extremely careful with how you approach paprika once you grind paprika after all the time you spent with it to become dry and ready to grind. You have to do it very slowly makers as soon as you pick up speed you burn the paprika and that remains throughout its lifetime because once you come to cook it again you have to be very careful with a not to burn it because then you just have to start over again tour guides from budapest anna leonard and george farkas are filling in on the importance of peppery cup in the cuisine of hungary right now on travel with rick steves. Okay so when we're talking about this have rica and i think it goes back the days when spaces were really important. I mean spice was big money in the early days of training today today at that time and originally now why was spaces in general very important economically for people well. It was a very important product. It was expensive at that time. It was not so easy to fly from one continent to other a trip two months of making food more interesting or is it a matter of preserving food actually spicy i got to the highest study stock chrissy those who had the opportunity to get products from far far away and paprika also i was introduced for the highest stock resi in hungary after people realised it is not poisonous because i it was considered a supposin and when they discovered that it has healing effect. You know it here the colorado and screw after it they started to make its production but it was a rarity and it was very expensive so at first who is just for the very wealthy and then you learn it. It helped as medicine against scurvy and cholera. Yes but also medication. Very often is a privilege of the wealthier class. Not available for everybody. Some

"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.

"To SCHRIMM. So whenever I I'm in a seafood place I always ask. Please do not cook on the same pan-eu Cook you know my face. Those kind of basic things. There are subverting necessary. 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.

"It's not coming straight into the beach but it's coming across the beach more from the surfer point of view when you're catching the wave. The waves break selassie. 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.

"Maybe to other places. I would recommend it because it is. They say the number one tourist destination in Costa Rica in so the infrastructure. Everything is very nice very convenient and set up for tourists so that does give the very tourist vibe. If somebody wants to experience something a little bit more rural little less tourist state. There are two really good destinations. That offer similar activities in things will WANNA miss will not a town. Actually it's cantoned yes. district got an English. What he's lawyers in Switzerland? We would say they have cantons so that is an English word. Yeah and it's called therapy and it's actually our from offer. Tina and they offer very similar activities. They have really good Whitewater rafting. They have chocolate tours. They have pineapple tours. They have a lot of good birding and nature and it's definitely for travelers who want something a little bit off the beaten path not estrus steak more rule the local culture farming experience there one of the two destinations in Costa Rica along with starchy. That has the sustainable certification from Acrobat in Germany and so it's a popular destination for a lot of European travellers and the locals are very focused on the sustainability. And everything like that. So it's a great way for anyone who wants to experience more of that in streak in the in another alternative destination would definitely be Monteverde. They don't offer quite as many things as Latina but they still have really really good. Zip-lining excellent zip-lining. They also have horseback riding. They have waterfalls canyoning. Excellent bird watching one of the best places for birdwatching. Costa Rica Hiking. Well I laugh when you see planning. I do agree. We've done the zip-lining in Costa Rica. We did only get halfway though before. It seemed like a good idea to get down off the trees because a thunderstorm came in so one of these days. I'm going to go back and I'm going to finish the zip-lining in Monteverde. Yeah we will thank you thank you. We have a couple of good options. Yeah we actually just came back from Zip lining now the one thing I would say when I was there now I was there a few years ago. It would behoove you if you're going to Monteverde that if you're renting a car you rent a four wheel drive that is something you actually Samantha said. We just went like few days ago. Four or five days ago. Because you know we always visiting downs. That's actually one new road. Which is one hundred percent? Yep Okay Yeah is the route number six six locals. We call this Saturday now route. If you're using your phone I mean waste is the way to go here is similar to Google maps ways. Works better here. Will their own by Google. Also I mean the new road is how the percents faith but once you get into. Monteverde this advice that we always give to all our readers is that you can get with us down if you want to with a combat guard him on the reading but once you get to town please make sure that you hotel AIRBNB or rental place. As normal axis the thing is also ninety percent of their. Bnb's is four by four axes or even some hotels are on top of all the heels. So that is a very distinct that we assist. Our readers is that they they read somewhere that road to Monteverde imperfectly lesions. So but one thing gets you. Yeah man I mean it's true you get over there but then go the extra mile do some research about VR. Get into hotel sending a Nemo delay. How's the access to different? Tell now that we're talking about Monteverde. If you go to some of the reserves to we'd recommend you have a today they get through with transportation because the roads do the some resorts there still gravel. Sure well it wasn't even that it was gravel when I did it. It was gravel and it was after the rainy season. And of course it's a rainforest so a lot of rain so it was gravel with great big ruts in it that happens over Costa Rica. And he's a very comedy if you're renting a car. Always check your final destination. We have had so many endless from people to go to south of Costa Rica Area that you could get to beat the but then everything is heels gravel and rain have been in situations trying to find that tow trucks got to again. Let's try and avoid that. Yeah excellent so we talked about La Fortuna and Monteverde. Where do we want to go next so after a few nights offer? Tina the next destination I usually recommend to. People is men while Tonio because amendment tonio get beautiful beaches a lot more nature. Good hiking in minimal. Tonal is very similar to offer tuna in the sense that it is very set up for tourists. There's a lot of hotels a lot of restaurants. The road is paved all the way. They're confined everything from a really cheap bed in a hostile to something really really expensive in luxury. Adult only in Mineral Tonio. We'll say minimal Antonio is the road there we're going almost all the way across the country. The things that I remember very small thousand square kilometers like dirty six thousand square miles.

"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.

"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..
