She said "What's the population of the area we'll be staying in?"
I did not reply "Listen, lady, they're not all gonna be staying with you at once, so don't worry."

This calls for an I Was Good Cookie. minchminchminch

She said "What's the population of the area we'll be staying in?"

What was that a euphemism for?

They're going to Costa Rica. She's gonna be up to her artificially-high cheekbones in *gasp* brown people.

Oh no. Not *gasp* brown people. Whatever will she do?

I Costa Rica? Not likely! But it's still a stupid concern.

I looooved Costa Rica. My Spanish improved dramatically.

Not, I imagine, that this lady will be going anywhere that doesn't use flawless Queen's English.

I'd guess it means "am I in the middle of nowhere or is there some place to eat and shop?"

She's staying at one of those all-inclusive resorts. My experience with those who stay at the resorts, especially ones that have sprung up in the midst of a third-world country (and Costa Rica still is very much third-world) is that they don't leave the friendly confines of the resort for anything except to jet back home.

So I'm not sure of her motives, but they certainly weren't scholarly.

I actually ask that question as a euphenism for "Is there going to be any place that doesn't close at 9pm?"

Also, plenty of Costa Ricans hate brown people- they're just more selective.

You might direct her to the CIA site on Costa Rica where she can look up all the really good gossip for herself?

Just a thought. ;) I'm sure the idea of visiting the CIA site alone will be worth the memory.

Seems like a perfectly reasonable question to me. One prepares entirely different for a trip to a fairly busy port/resort city than for a trip to a tiny village or retreat somewhere in the middle of nowhere.
