Traveling

Traveling is good for at least two things. First, it's the most effective means I know of for breaking the anal-retentive habits that you accumulate from too much time in law school. Second, travel can expose you to diverse and surprising cultural treasures. For example, wandering around the streets of Alajuela yesterday, I passed a store displaying various kinds of panties in the front window. One of them was lime green. It had a cartoon frog printed on the crotch, with the words "Un sapito rico." "A Rich Frog."

Is this a peculiarly Costa Rican fetish? Maybe they're selling the English version of these panties at Wal-Mart, and I just missed it.
