I am not sure why I did not have a good time. I was toured around with a fairly decent bunch of people, given the royal treatment, saw some unforgettable sights, but I guess I was, despite my determination to enjoy myself, very non plussed. I enjoyed the different foods, even the cold sliced horse meat that is so prevalent at breakfast time. I remember this trip with a great deal of sorrow and regret. I guess I expected too much, I don’t know. I know one thing for sure. I was ashamed of the Americans on the bus with me, who kept complaining that it was not like America. I kept wanting to shout, “That is so RUDE! If you want to see America, why are you in SPAIN?”over 7 years ago

I was born in the Twin Cities and just love to go back and visit every chance I can. I have so many relatives in Minnesota and think it is clean, well organized and friendly. GREATCOOKS up there. Gardening, Baking, Sewing…all the home comforts await you on a trip to Minnesota. Lakes, the headwaters of the Mississippi, and the Red River of the North. Fishing, snowmobiling, ice skating, sledding, boating. You can do it all up there. Take a trip to Bemidgi and see the Great Paul Bunyon and his Blue Ox, Babe. Just for fun.over 7 years ago
When I visited Costa Rica, I was surprised by the friendliness of our hosts. They really rolled out the red carpet for us. I got to visit a coffee plantation and see how they pick, sort and sack the beans, which is one of their major crops. They also manufacture rope.
Scenery is mountainous, very green and there is ocean on both coasts. The language is Spanish, but most of the elite spoke very good English.
From what I understand, many Americans are moving their for retirement due to a lower cost of living. Not too far from the United States.
