One day, it happened. The Orosi Lodge, in a small little town, situated in a valley not that far away from San Jose, felt just right.
I prefer the upper floor room for the view from the balcony.Because of the description that two volcanoes are visible to the naked eye right from the balcony. And, one volcano was active. Who wouldn't want such a view? Jimmy Stewart's character in Rear Window would have way preferred this, with Grace Kelly by his side, right? Well, I suppose if Grace Kelly is by one's side, any man will find even hell to be pleasant!

"Where in Germany are you from?" I asked him.
I told him about having been in Munich many years ago when the taxi driver asked me to look up at the famous Bavarian sky. Andreas beamed a smile and said "blue sky with white clouds."
After walking around the town a bit, I returned to find a woman at the desk. "You are the wife that Andreas said might be here?"
"Yes. I am Connie" and she extended her arm.
The next morning, I was up even before sunrise and knew I had a long wait for breakfast time--Andreas told me that they opened up again only at seven. Lucky for me, the doors opened even before 630.
"Guten Morgen" I said walking in.
Connie wished me in German and Andreas said "buenos dias."

"What things they teach, eh" chimed in Andreas as I sat down at a table for my breakfast.
Freshly scrambled eggs with cheese and tomatoes, with bread and jam, and juice. And coffee, of course. All wonderfully tasting.
I had another validation of the special feeling I had when making the reservation for a room that came with a balcony view of two volcanoes.
