What have I been up to lately? Why, writing another book, that's what!
As you undoubtedly gathered from the title, the new book is similar to "Dances with Prostitutes - Costa Rica Style." Ther are … [Read More...]
I use the word "dream" loosely here. I'm not talking about what happens while we're sleeping, but about the "dream" life most of us have in our heads. Not technically a dream but more an idealized life, ambition or whatnot. I think everybody has them, though I haven't asked everybody yet.
In my younger days, my dream was to be a very successful … [Read More...]
True confessions time. But first, a video.
Alright, now for some embarrassing truth. Many years ago, at least 5, probably more, I met Giorgina. She had a pretty face and a bounteous chest. We went through the usual routine of a pay for play date, and we saw a fair amount of each other for a week or two. I finally had to back off because she kept … [Read More...]
A friend came into town last weekend and as usual we got together for a little tour. Some guys head right for the Del Rey when they get here. Others head for Sportsmen's or Zona 2. My friend heads for Calle 6.
Now, if you don't know about Calle 6, I suppose I should give a short explanation. If you were to start at Parque Central, you would walk 3 blocks … [Read More...]

I was out on a Friday night recently, in the Gulch but not the Del Rey or Key Largo, and after spending a fair number of hours consuming beer and socializing, I found myself sitting alone and into the bar walked a working girl. That's certainly not news, and really there was nothing noteworthy about the lady in question other than her nice rack, showcased … [Read More...]
Forrest Gump's mama was right. You never know what you'll get.
I had been staying home a lot and decided it was time to at least go have a few beers at a couple of the gringo bars. I called Magdalena, a good friend who happens to be a semi-retired working girl. She was more than willing to meet me downtown, and thus we agreed to meet at Joe B and Karen's … [Read More...]
A well-heeled businessman from the Southern United States came down for his first visit to Costa Rica, and on someone's advice, booked himself a room in the Del Rey Hotel. Obviously he knew a LITTLE about the scene down here or he wouldn't have picked that particular hotel.
In any event, a friend of mine went to discuss business with him and I tagged … [Read More...]
There's a mindset down here in Costa Rica, and probably a lot of other "developing" countries that a lot of gringos find baffling. There is a certain disregard for the future that seems very common here, especially among the working girls. It manifests itself in quite a few different ways.
I'll get into my theories about why this is the case, but let's … [Read More...]
