In 1998, in one of my first real experiences in the tropics, I volunteered as a research assistant to track tapirs in Corcovado National Park. One of Costa Rica's wildest and wettest protected areas, the park had a reputation for getting a lot of rain — up to seven meters of rain each year. 

The year I arrived, it stopped raining.
