Ship to shoreJanuary 21 in Costa Rica ⋅ 🌬 22 °C
A quick getaway from the ship. We were off by 8.20 and found our taxi waiting at the gate. An hour and a half later we were dropped at the Hotel Colonial and soon checked in by very friendly staff who printed out a map for us showing the route to the eye clinic where I had booked for my injection.
We sat over a coffee and caught up with emails etc and then ambled through this busy, bustling city towards the clinic. We stopped for lunch ( our first Costa Rican 'Plato del Dia', a hearty meal with soft drink for about £3) and then went to the eye clinic.
Doctor Rubinstein was very helpful, he did some of his training at Stoke Mandeville, and the injection was done, enough said!
We wandered back through the shopping streets, stopped for tea in the National Theatre and then back to our room.
We ended up in a very local restaurant that night for a small snack before an early night lulled to sleep by the constant din of car horns!!Read more
