Hostel Drama in Costa Rica

After being up at 4:30 am and flying to Liberia, Costa Rica, I was ready for a nap. The lovely and somewhat insane, Shaun (owner of Hospedaje Dodero) picked me up at the airport. The sun was shining, the breeze was sexy and I was pumped to be in Costa Rica. But before I could get out of my stank clothes and visit sleepsville I heard some crazy drama going on just outside the hostel and had to check out that dilly-o.

For entertainment’s sake (and the fact that I don’t know his name) I’m going to call the man who was previously staying in the hostel Mr.Taco.

As Shaun explained to me, Mr.Taco has not paid for the past two nights and has been humming and hawing about paying for his room for quite some time. Thus, when Mr.Taco wanted back in the hostel to get his things, Shaun said “Not unless you can pay your bill”.

Mr.Taco did NOT like this. and decided it was his best option to yell and scream at the gate, threatening that when Shaun

Shaun

Shaun

leaves the hostel, Mr.Taco’s friends will get him. (For clarity, this means Shaun was going to get beat up). But this didn’t phase Shaun, he just laughed and told him to go get his money.

Instead of just paying, Mr.Taco went to get the policia, whom said he had a right to get his things, but that Shaun also had the right to file a complaint with the policia about Mr.Taco not paying his bill. This quited the whole argument and Mr.Taco ran off.

Why did he do that and where can you get a Taco? Well I don’t know where you can get a Taco, I’m in Costa Rica, not Mexico you stupid. But I do know why he ran off, word around the hostel is that he would get kicked out of Costa Rica by the policia because Mr.Taco is originally from Nicaragua and came here illegally. What a bad Taco!

Anyways, nothing new on that front has happened since.
I had some yogurt today for breakfast.

Bye byes.

I like those ideas. We’ve been changing up our gaomucale recipe to keep it relatively light. We also started putting raw red bell peppers on our tacos!

Just so that I get the visualization right, was Mr Taco soft-shelled or crunchy? I hate crunchy.

My Dad just got back from New Zealand two days ago, and since he got back he wears this shirt that says “Cool story bro, tell it again!”… just sayin’

Now I wish I had a candid photo of my Dad in his new shirt.

What flavour was the yoghurt?

Haha, was it that boring?
It was tropical fruit flavored yoghurt

Tacos…Mexican food… I’m in Germany, the land of bad attempts of Mexican food and low tolerance for spicy food. You’re making me miss Mexican food.

Poor Mr. Taco. It’s also awesome how Shaun was just so cool about everything. Btw you’re hilarious.
