last month mike and i packed our bags, jumped on a plane and a few hours later landed in the beautiful country of costa rica for leslie and michaels wedding. from the moment that we arrived i was floored at the beauty of the country and all of the great people that live there. we took a shuttle from the airport and finally arrived at the zephyr palace...i had only seen photos online, which did it no justice. it's truly breathe-taking...from its poetic architecture, to the wildlife, to the calmness and isolation of the jungle. we met michael and leslie for the first time soon after we arrived...they're from NYC and booked us long distance. spending the next couple of days with them was incredible..we ziplined through the jungle, atv-ed through the mountains, swam in the ocean at manuel antonio and came across and met the sweetest white-faced monkey named ollie. (i REALLY wanted to bring him back with me but no dice;) i'm honored to have been there to document such of a collectively beautiful and bonding experience. congratulations to you both! all the best, paula and mike.
