Denver Bomb Cyclone time lapse

Eating the Globe: Costa Rica

It has been a while since I conquered another country.

While making my coffee, I considered Drinking the Globe instead, as I can probably check off another ten or twenty countries by drinking their coffees, beers, wines, and liqueurs. It's my game, I can make up my own rules.

But instead, for now, I am sticking with food. I went on Amazon and found these Costa Rican cookies.

They were very dry.
