We came back home and tried to figure out how to use the Magic Jack, but we can't plug into the Magic Jack and the data card at the same time. Kevin tried to use Bluetooth. We got Bluetooth but can't seem to figure out how it allows our computers to share the signal. Having said that, we went up to the school again in the SUV (sport utility vehicle, which is a 4x4 truck). We drove around searching for a strong signal. The locals must think we're loco. We finally hit a hot spot and Eureka! I was able to connect to the internet. I wrote a comment on Facebook and had a chat with Jude. It was raining at the time and in the distance there was bolts of lightning and crackles of thunder. It was pretty bazaar to be sitting in a SUV in the rainy mountains of Costa Rica and typing on Facebook. Since the sky was clouded over, and we were sitting in the 4x4, we were able to see the computer screen much better. Driving around looking for a signal certainly is not ideal, and I hope we are able to get internet at the house in the next couple of weeks, but for now, this is how we roll. It's better than nothing. Even finding an internet signal is an adventure in Costa Rica.

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.
