San Jose and my lost baggage - a load od old b*lls

San Jose and my lost baggage - a load od old b*lls

A fair chunk of my time has been spent either moping or trying to locate Bob.  As the airport never answers the phone i have little luck with the latter.  I'm also a bit fed up from wearing the same clothes for over 2 days.
I can't say that i like San Jose, I can't say that i gave it a fair chance either.  There's a couple of nice parks, some nice buildings - particularly churches and a couple of decent museums.  But it's also a fairly sprawling, fairly dirty, prostitute filled, loud marimbas of a place that lacks the beautiful squares of other Spanish influenced cities.  I'm not sorry to leave it after only 2 nights - in fact within an hour of having Bob returned to me...finally.
I'm aware that I'm not enjoying the travelling as much as when i first started - that's not to say I'm disliking it, more that I've become lethargic and less enthusiastic.  I'm also craving mental stimulus and i think it's all a result of travelling for so long in one go.  Even my couple of rest breaks in places hasn't really helped.  I've decided to base myself in Guatemala for a while to learn Spanish.  I just have to zip through a few countries to get there.  This will be the really difficult bit: deciding which places to miss out.  I have to believe this part of the trip is just a taster of these countries and that if i like them, as always - I'll be back.
