Another Nice Day

I really cannot think of a day in Costa Rica that has not been nice. Actually, that is an understatement. A more accurate word would be "beautiful".

Today we met newly arrived expat friends from Maryland for lunch in Atenas. Welcome Carol and Paul! We had lunch at La Carreta, which has moved one block over from their previous location. They are still across from the park, just a block up. I can recommend the breaded shrimp with a green salad and papas (fries). There was enough on my plate to ask for take away so I have something to snack on tonight. We were too full from lunch to think about having dinner tonight.

Here are a few photos of our day. At this time of year, the late afternoon sun hits our patio area so I came up with the idea of attaching my pareo on a bamboo stick and temporarily hanging the stick from the rafters. It does help and I think it looks nice and colourful from the street.

Palms in the Central Park.
My brilliant idea to help block the sun from our patio.

I usually travel a lot to San Jose in Costa Rica on business and i always have a great time in this beautiful country, i love the food and the people are very nice and helpful, in recent weeks I have stayed at a mexican hotel chain, it seems a good choice from all the hotels in San Jose.I really like this hotel because it is geared for business people and the staff is very helpful at all times.
