Costa Rican Footwear

I've been away on business; actually had to stay overnight in a hotel. I'm hoping it's the last time I do that for business. More on that in another post. I'm not feeling particularly talkative; I think I'm getting a cold. Just took two Tylenol. I have errands to run and we are meeting some friends for dinner in a nearby town.

The top shoe is one that I love. I wore them here long before we went to Costa Rica. When I got there I discovered how quickly they filled with sand, which was really uncomfortable, so bought the pink ones at the local grocery store in Montezuma. I have very wide feet; I mean really, really wide. My feet are more like rectangles than anything else. Consequently I always have trouble finding shoes. The pink ones were incredibly wide so I bought them. Susan bought a pair just like them only in red. They were comfortable and did a better job of keeping the sand out.

Once the clothes come out of the dryer, I'm off to the library to pick up a book that I placed on hold. I'm still reading at a ferocious rate. Then it's nap time.

we have those things, or something very similar up here. they're called paws or something like that. they're the big new thing and are all over the place. even the university store is selling them.
