It was just this Saturday night that I was out with a friend from Florida who is a frequent visitor to Costa Rica. The night started out rather strangely. We arranged to meet at a local, low end bar/brothel. Before even entering, we saw a crudely made sign on the wall that said "No gringos. Solo gringos locos."

Before I moved to Costa Rica, I don't think I could have imagined becoming as blase about having sex available any time I wanted it from more women than I could count, but after nine plus years, I now take for granted this very fact.

Relative newcomers as well as some … [Read More...]
Everyone reading this is either contemplating his first visit or remembers his first visit.

Into Audio Books? Youtube sample chapter from "Dances with Prostitutes Costa Rica Style" Available at Audible.com
I spent many a night waiting for quiet spots between passing motorcycles and garbage trucks to record this thing, then spend hours editing out (virtually) all my f-ups to come up with a three hour audio book. One thing I can say for certain is … [Read More...]
Thanks to everyone who has bought a copy of "Magdalena - A Prostitute's Life in Costa Rica." Some people have asked me a few questions about the book so I thought I would do what I could to answer them here.
