A trip to Costa Rica was agreed upon, and the bathing suits were packed. The eight-day excursion was a celebration trip for Claire and Donald Daum’s 39th anniversary and Paulette and Mel Levine’s 40th anniversary. They visited rain forests, floated on rivers surrounded by wildlife, swam in the ocean, and sat under waterfalls for a zen massage. They were surprised to be wakened at 2, 3 and 4 a.m., on the hour, by the monkeys in Manuel Antonio National Park! Now they know why they are called “howler” monkeys. Wild party animals included the humans.
