AJ - don't worry at all. I totally read that the right way/how you meant it. 🙂 The friendliness of Costa Ricans is incredible. If I asked them if they knew a Costa Rican I know I would not be surprised if they did know them! They are such a social group of people - sitting on the curb near the church and just watching folks and waving to them. At the time I was working full time in a very stressful job, and I just envied their simplicity.
