Costa Rica

Ein westlich orientiertes Land

07.10.2003

Nach einem Abstecher an die Pazifikkueste Nicaraguas, nach San Juan del Sur, bin ich weiter nach Costa Rica gefahren. Dort habe ich eine “alte Freundin” aus Guatemala wiedergetroffen und wir sind ein paar Tage zusammengeblieben. Costa Rica eilt ein schlechter Ruf voraus (von den Backpackertouristen) . Hier sei alles sehr teuer und touristisch und voller Amerikaner! Und es stimmt schon, Costa Rica ist ganz anders als die anderen Laender bisher. Alles sehr zivilisiert und westlich orientiert. Viele Leute sprechen hier auch englisch. Und die Amis…..Man kann ihnen aber aus dem Weg gehen. Allerdings landet man dann in so kleinen huebschen Orten, wo es nicht einmal Internet gibt. Landschaftlich ist es hier einzigartig schoen. Alles ist ueppig gruen und saftig, Berge, Vulkane und sanfte Huegel, bunte Blumen und dichter Dschungel. Zur Zeit regnet es wie aus Eimern, so dass ich keine Auslfuege in Nationalparks machen kann. Aber man sieht taeglich grosse bunte Voegel und hoert die Bruellaffen bruellen, klingt wie in einem Horrorfilm, wenn man nicht weiss, dass es Affen sind. Vorgestern entdeckte ich waehrend einem Strandspazierganges etwas interessantes. An diesem Strand gab es sehr viele individuell gestaltete Privathaeuser mit grossen Grundstuecken. Auf einem Torpfeiler entdeckte ich ein ausgestopftes Tier, was ich sehr interessant fand. Ich ging naeher heran und erkannte ein riesiges Eichhoernchen, rotbraun mit einem gruenweissen buschigen Schwanz. Wunderhuebsch. Als ich mich ihm auf ca. einen Meter genaehert hatte, sprang es ploetzlich hoch und raste dann davon. Mir blieb fast das Herz stehen, denn ich hatte wirklich gedacht, es sei ausgestopft!!
Die letzten beiden Tage war ich in einem kleinen Kuestenort mit einem Bilderbuchstrand. In meinem Hotel war ich ganz allein mit dem jungen argentinischen Besitzer. Auch sonst weit und breit kein Tourist! Abends haben wir dann gemeinsam eine “sopa de mariscos”, eine Meeresfruechtesuppe, gekocht und eine Flasche Champagner getrunken . Das war auch ein schoenes Erlebnis. Leider kann ich zur Zeit noch keine Fotos schicken, hoffe es klappt bald wieder. Ich bin gerade in der Hauptstadt und habe richtig Angst, zum ersten Mal, denn hier wird man an jeder Ecke gewarnt!


Karibik pur

09.10.2003

So, nun bin ich hier an der Karibikkueste, wo es ganz anders ist. Erstens regnet es hier nicht, und zweitens ist die Kultur eine andere. Hier leben fast nur Schwarze, Nachfahren von Jamaikanern, die vor , ich wiess nicht 100 Jahren, hierhergeholt wurden, um die Eisenbahn zu bauen!!!
Hier gibt es eine rege Reggaeszene, Rastafaris und genuegend Drogenprobleme. Das leben laeuft hier sehr relaxed. Gerade kam jemand von der Stromgesellschaft, um dem Besitzer des Internetcafes die Stromkabel durchzuschneiden, er hatte, wie hier ueblich, bis zuletzt gewartet mit dem Bezahlen der Stromrechnung.
Vor meiner Haustuer befindet sich der Eingang zu einem sehr schoenen Nationalpark, der nicht einmal Eintritt kostet!! Sehr ungewoehnlich hier. Ansonsten ist hier alles fast doppelt so teuer wie bisher.
