Today is Saturday, November 29, 2014. We arrived in Costa Rica on May 31, 2011. We have lived here for three years and six months. Many things have transpired since our arrival.
We arrived here with six suitcases and our elderly cat, Genny. In the suitcases were clothing and a lot of electronics. For some odd reason, I also brought a lot of wooden chopsticks with me.
The chopsticks we still have. Genny has gone. She had a great few years here. The clothes we brought with us have mostly deteriorated and are near to being tossed, or have been tossed.
The electronics are still working!
That is the past. The present and future is this - we are living in this amazing country. We have made so many friends - both Ticos and other expats. Our calendar is full with any number of activities. Our social life is amazing.
We love where we live - in the small farming community of Atenas in the Central Valley. We are slowly learning Spanish. I walked into Atenas this morning and was offered a ride from a fellow expat while part way there .. and he had nothing but good to say about his life here. I could only agree.
