It was three years ago that I ventured into the jungles of the Philippines to be nosey and stay one night with the Batek people. Perhaps that experience has led me to this latest adventure. When I left my job in Saudi Arabia earlier this month, I knew that in order to maintain my tax exempt status I would have to remain outside America’s borders for a month in order to meet the 330 day outside requirement. So here I am doing my time in the jungles of Costa Rica. I couldn’t ask for a better location to do time. This country has 5% of the world’s biodiversity! I won’t be just lounging and lazing the days away. I volunteered my time with a hostel out here. I hope to return to the states or continue this adventure in another country in a month’s time.
