Simón Bolívar Zoo, Costa Rica

Yesterday my family and I decided to again take a trip to downtown San Jose and visit one of Costa Rica’s many museums, El Museo de Arte y Diseño (the museum of art and design). The day that before, we travelled downtown and tried visiting El Museo Nacional (the nacional museum), El Museo de Arte…

Bowling and Christmas

Merry Christmas! Or should I say merry day-after Christmas.

Reading List: American Sniper
