Hello from Coco!

Hello, hello!

So we’ve been in Costa Rica for 3 full days now and we’ve spent most of our time in the apartment sleeping. I know, I know. Boo!!

When we flew down here Melo was on the back-end of a cold and I was on the front end of one, so in addition to just being a little jet lagged and tired, our bodies were like,  “Vacation? What vacation? We gon’ sleep!”

Anyway, we did manage to get out a couple of times to briefly check out the beach and grab some groceries. Our apartment has a decent sized kitchen so cooking at “home” definitely helps make the trip more affordable for us. And while the larger grocery store is about half a mile away, there is a mini-market right across the street from where we are staying. We went there tonight to pick up just a couple of things since we walked to the larger store on Thursday night to get the majority of what we needed. On the walk back from that trip we accidentally got sprayed by Deet by the health department truck–LOL.

On the flip side, we stopped by Tico’s Panaderia for some fresh-baked goods. Melo got two savory ones: one with chicken and one with beef. I got some plain sweet bread and an apple sweet bread. They were delicious!

Anyway, enjoy the pictures! And don’t forget to subscribe to Plate and Passport via email for more food and travel inspiration!
