The prospect of traveling to another country always brings up some new issues to think about. Yesterday Mom and I checked out a local sporting goods store to buy "hiking shoes," which are recommended for our horseback ride up the volcano in Arenal.
"These are just super expensive ugly sneakers."
"Do you think we could just wear our normal sneakers?"
"I guess so. I mean, as long as you're comfortable walking with them."
"My leg brace doesn't fit into anything else anyway."
"I think we'll be fine."
"Do you think we should buy backpacks with water reservoirs?"
"They have those?"
Clearly, we are ready to fly to Central America for a week.
