Ellie, Roberto's mother, came by for a short visit. I gave her a tour of the property even though she's been here before since she was a friend of the previous owners. Then, just as Ellie was leaving, Adriana (her daughter-in-law) and Leidy were walking down the driveway. They came by to deliver the fresh butter in exchange for some eggs. I gave another tour and then we all (Paul, Kevin, Adriana, Leidy and I) sat down on the backyard terrace and shared a cool beverage. The sun was hot and the sky clear blue. Then later, Kevin and I went to the community school party... a get together for the parents and all the people who participate with the school. Another typical Tico event. Good day. It's Paul's last night with us. He leaves for home tomorrow morning. It's been great having him here and we'll miss him.

My husband, Kevin, and I are from Burlington, Ontario, Canada. We decided to leave the cold winters of the Great White North and the hustle and bustle of our busy lives to reinvent ourselves in the beautiful mountains of Costa Rica. The planning stage started in June 2011 and we embarked on our new adventure on August 23, 2012. Welcome to our journey... enjoy the ride.
