The Path to Pura Vida

As infrequently as I seem to be posting these days, the Theater is going dark for a week. At 6am tomorrow morning, we'll be strapped into our seats out at London Slightly-International Airport for what will be an 8-hour trek to San Jose, Costa Rica.

Call me Bwana if you must. Over the next week we'll hike through rainforests, watch glowing lava ooze down Arenal Volcano against the night sky, try our hand at zip-lining over the jungle canopy, and shoot (mild) rapids down a Costa Rican river. And, it seems, we'll be doing a lot of this in the rain. But no matter - it'll be an adventure.

Due to an unfortunate incident a few weeks back, I'll have no personal Innertube technology this trip and it's unlikely I'll post anything here until I get back. That is, if I get back. The jungle is a dangerous mistress, you know. It's full of monkeys - face-biting monkeys.

Wish me luck.
