STL DPB ON THE ROAD - NEW NEIGHBOR


The apartment building where we stayed in Tamarindo has six stories. Each unit has a large balcony at the corner with an awning off the sides. We were on the top floor, so the next apartment's awning was immediately beneath us. One morning we looked out and found this large grasshopper, perhaps  4 in / 10 cm, just sitting there. It sat all day. It was there after lunch. It was there after we came back from a walk on the beach. It hardly moved the whole time. By the time we returned from dinner it had found another perch. At least we got to say hello.
