Preparing for Costa Rica

So it's two days before we leave for Costa Rica and it's finally becoming real that YES, WE ARE GOING!!! Everyone has their passport (after two last minute scares) and tickets. We sit down at the Lee Road cafe for a pre-trip meeting. Marcie reads to us from her Costa Rica guidebook, which says that we shouldn't bring jeans, and that we need synthetic, lightweight pants, which none of us have. Also, the guidebooks stress to bring our own toilet paper, especially in rural areas. We all make note of that. Somehow, I figure, even if we all just show up in our bathing suits, we'll find a way to have a good time. I think I have forgotten how going to a foreign country can seem pretty scary the first couple times you leave the states.
