trippin' to the tropics

Centro Histórico, Palacio de la Inquisición / Cartagena, Colombia
Off again trippin' for the long Memorial Day weekend (plus a few more days) - this time to Costa Rica. We are going to the area around La Fortuna which is the Arenal Volcano district in the northern jungles. Forecast is very hot and very sticky - perfect volcano weather. Oh, and the Palacio de la Inquisición (photo was taken in the courtyard) was the site of over five hundred religious executions and was only closed late in the 18th century. It is now a museum and memorial to the victims of the Inquisición.

Maybe if they just climbed that tree they could have escaped the Inquisition. Probably not.

What are the rings on the tree? Natural or protection of some sort?
