We said goodbye to our guest, Joy, and her friend Zaul this morning. I drove them to the bus station where they were travelling to the Caribbean coast. Later, Kevin and I met up with Catalina and her friends (Viv, Steve, Oscar and Loreth whom we had all met at her birthday party way back in November) at the Feria de cafe in the small town of San Pablo. We met a few coffee plantation farmers from the area - one in particular from Copey who would like to offer tours to our guests. We will meet up again in a week or so to discuss the possibility of partnering... could be a mutually beneficial arrangement. After we were done with the fair, we all ended up at Catalina's house. Her husband, Gogui, was working on the coast this weekend, so she was happy for the company. We had some coffee, carrot cake and fresh coconut. It was very relaxed... it's very easy being with these people. Everyone is so friendly. We invited them all to come to our place on April 7th... the day of the Rio Blanco Fun Day. Hopefully, they can make it.

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.
