Nikon Coolpix AW100 – A Second Look

Nikon Coolpix AW100 … A First Look

You already know that we at Crazu are brand loyal and that Nikon is our camera of choice.  Thanks to the expat express, thanks Conrad, the waterproof 16 mega pixel Nikon Coolpix AW100 that we have been pining for, ok, whining for, showed up last Sunday.  I can review it in one word: wow. When ...

Paintball: Ouch! and other inventive language…

Paintball, well, not exactly unique to Costa Rica, but one could see where one would want to give this a shot, no pun intended, just to see what it was like in a jungle environment.  Guess what, hot and sweaty, buggy, and painful.  Yea, that was fun, it really was, but, KIDS, DO NOT TRY THIS AT ...

Sloth This…

Time stamp: first time in 11 days with no rain and a little teasing sun.  The family is not the only ones to notice the break in the weather as you can tell from the accompanying photos of “Greenie,” our resident sloth, photographed by Bobby with the Nikon D3100.  This guy/gal (?) has been ...
