Costa Rica Cost Of Living Update:  Can of mace-$20

It was a dark, windy night.  The kind where the leaves rustle into mini cyclones before scattering away.  I was quietly writing when I heard a tap at the window.  I looked up, saw nothing, and went back to my manuscript.

The sounds got louder from the window so I crept closer but couldn’t see past the darkness.  I reached for the camera, snapped a picture, and this is the image I saw for a split second while the flash went off.

What followed was a long and animated bout of screaming that all but proved I have not acclimated to living in the rainforest.

I have more pictures of this animal attacking another window in my Gallery or at my Facebook page Happier Than A Billionaire.
