After I spent the morning conducting Skype interviews with the volunteer teaching position candidates, and Kevin was done with the pond, we drove into San Marcos to run some errands. We needed to buy some paint for the entrance gate, some hose clamps, propane and medicine for Frankie. She's been suffering from an eye infection for the past week and it doesn't seem to be clearing up on its own, so we decided to get something from the vet. When we drove back home and drove through Santa Maria, Kevin asked me if he could treat me to a cup of coffee. What? Really? Kevin doesn't drink coffee normally so I was a bit surprised that he was offering. When he went on the coffee plantation tour with Paul, they had both tried a coffee at the end of the tour and he really liked it. So, I graciously accepted his offer... it kind of felt like a date :) We both ordered some decadent coffee with caramel (real caramel, none of this fake syrup stuff). It was pretty darn delicious, I must say. And it only cost the equivalent of $1.80... they even serve special coffees with Brandy or Irish Cream for only $2.50. We might have to try one of those some day!

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.
