I had a great time in Canada. I'm full of mixed emotions though: very sad to leave my children as I had such a fantastic time with them and oh so happy to be back home with Kevin, Frankie, our hens and fish... I guess I settled into our Costa Rican lifestyle more than I had realized. The good news is that Phoenix and Jude will both be coming here during March break. Something to look forward to!
The flights home were good. I had a short layover in El Salvador. So short, in fact, that I got off the first plane, walked over to Gate 15 and walked right onto the second plane. I'm sure glad the first flight wasn't delayed! Having said that, as I sat down I noticed the flight crew from the first plane was filing on board, so I guess the second plane would have had to wait regardless.
Kevin was outside the San Jose airport waiting for me at 4:30 pm. A sight for sore eyes, let me tell you! It was the first time we'd been away from each other for two full weeks.
It was cloudy and quite warm (23°C). Unfortunately, the traffic through San Jose was incredibly slow and it took us two hours to get out of the city. Then another hour from Cartago to our place. It was pitch dark by then and very foggy so visibility was hampered. You really have to be careful driving up the winding roads, but we finally made it home. I unpacked and found that the Bodum I had bought had shattered into a hundred pieces. I had wrapped it in linen, but I should have done a better job. I had bought it for the guest house, so, we'll have to find a different alternative. Oh well, it is what it is. Now looking forward to a goodnight's sleep. Exhausted.
