Hah. I agree. You can sort of see the truck if you look between the white and black cars, you can see a white roof up ahead, and that's the Defender with its driving lights on. Worst photo ever though...I'd agree.
Plus, it's not even the West Village, or the U.S. for that matter!

I just saw a NAS Green D90 SW with a slight lift and bumperettes on the rear, driving in the West Village.
Is that a Canadian flag though? Could get points for a Canadian flag sighting.

Did you try the tacos at the place across the street from the chicken place? Across from Pension Santa Elena?




I have a pic of the zebra truck I took when we went horse back riding in Monteverde.

Seems like Daniel's truck pops up about once a week on Instagram.

I'm glad you guys chased me down. What's the point of driving a relatively rare truck if people can't follow you into random parking lots?

We drove up there for the day to zip line at Salvatura Park and walk the sky bridges. We actually ate at the lodge on the mtn but they stopped at the chocolate cafe afterwards. The drinks were good.. I can't say I had a bad meal anywhere in CR..
