2/21/2009: Our first morning in Santa Elena, we hoped to get an early start in Reserva Monteverde. The first bus passing by, however, did not stop for us. I was getting the distinct impression that people around here do not like tourists. Anyway, we got into the next bus which went directly to the park. Our trips into the cloud forests tended to coincide with poor weather, and Monteverde was no exception. We walked pretty much every trail in the park, half of the time in wind and rain.
