„At first I was laughing about all the warm clothes we got,” says Alex and puts on his outdoor jacket. “But now I am relieved that they were in the package.”
At the dinner table in Providencia’s only restaurant-bar ’La Flor’, a concrete brig without heater, they all wear hats and jackets. Guillermo serves rice and beans, the classic Costa Rican dish that is served at any time of day. For breakfast, Costa Ricans eat rice and beans with omelet or eggs, for lunch and dinner with chicken or fish. The guys have gotten used to it and dig in what’s on their plate. They are starving.
Boyko, Schley and Harookz have spent all day on top of the mountain building the hip. Because of the unique scenery and the great view at this spot Harookz is hoping for a cover shot. But a lot of work still lies ahead. Harookz is raving: “The sunset tonight was mind-blowing. Tomorrow afternoon I want to do some trail shots up there. The light, the clouds and these rugged, moss-over-grown stumps are awesome. I am sure we will get some amazing shots. However, the hip we have to shoot in the morning, for that we need a different light. We can do that the day after tomorrow.”
Paulo nods. “That’s great, because that means we can go for a ride tomorrow morning. By the way, I have spoken to the brother of our landlord and he is fine with digging up his old fishpond. You can build your dirt jump there."
