San Jose, you were exactly what I needed.
We had spent so much time in small towns, I forgot what it was like to be in a bustling city. Sure, San Jose only has 300k people in it but it is lively as all hell.
Never once did I feel threatened walking down the streets.
Have I become a seasoned traveler? Sure, I grasp my bags to my body, and sure, Shaun has a pocket with buttons for his wallet. Pickpockets? No one came even remotely near us.
Children hand fed softly cooing pigeons while church bells echoed through Plaza de la Cultura.
Music floated through the air.
Dare I say it?
I liked San Jose.
San Jose, I got you all wrong. Forgive me.
