Costa Rica and Panama May 2009

This was a family trip. I met Maria and Ben in Costa Rica. They were coming from SF and I was coming from El Salvador. We were with our friends Jeremy, Laura and Rogan from Four Barrel Coffee roasters. It was great to travel with the kids! (Hence all the kid pictures...)

This is Ben. Ben and his Mama, Maria, went to Costa Rica and Panama
