My problem with the witticism, however, is that it implies flash memory can store more photos than anyone could possibly take. Whoever said this never went to Costa Rica.
This tropical slice of Central America offers some of the richest wildlife and most beautiful scenery in the world crammed into 50,000ish square kilometers.
I’m talking about sweeping river basins riddled with rapids, cloud forests lit up with howler monkey calls, beaches invaded by monkeys and crab racoons, lush jungle cocoa plantations, epic waterfalls, and more.
Costa Rica also offers bewildering glimpses into ways of life that are foreign to U.S. citizens like myself. Unattended piles of burning trash, machete-wielding pineapple-harvesting bicyclists, mothers rolling babies down busy country-like roads, over-tanned ex-pat bed-and-breakfast owners, and sanctuaries filled with lumbering sloths, to name a few.
I snapped more than a thousand photos during the March 2011 trip with Kendra and our friends, ultimately filling up a 16-gigabyte card twice over. Below are some favorite shots that survived the delete button.
