fight the good fight
some things in the world are beautiful. this bug, for example.
other things are way more scary, more ugly. minimum wages, herbicides, pesticides, monocultures, corrupt governments, racism in the planification of this country, banana plantations, boredom.
there are lots of festivals here in san jose, which are full of hippies and unicyclists and music and art.
there is a lot to costa rica. everything is new. this could be the most simplified thing, but i think it's the only way to sum up my past two weeks of traveling, interviewing, seeing and smelling and tasting, birding and coral reef monitoring, of sloths and monkeys and toucans and planes spraying pesticides above.
