The mornings are gorgeous...temperatures up to 30°C, but the air is thick with humidity and the afternoons greet us with hours of downpour. Yesterday, the heavens opened up like we'd never seen. I was in the office, writing, and the clap of thunder followed on seconds after the bright strobe of lightning. I heard a zap and saw a spark near the internet modem. I'm not entirely sure when the spark came from, it was just an instant from the corner of my eye. No more internet signal. We're not sure if something fried on our end or if this is affecting everyone in the region. This morning, we're still without internet, so we're back to using good ol' data card. This brings back memories of driving around the mountain, looking for a signal. Well, luckily, I'm able to get a signal in our house, now. Things have evolved since last year, which is a good thing. However, the data card is not optimal and depending on how long it takes to get it fixed, blog entries may be less frequent. Costa Rica, baby! It happens.

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.
