Martin just told us that due to the storm last night, the new overpass (bridge) that was built just last Thursday was blocked with rocks and the river water couldn't get through the cylinders. Martin, his son, Bryan, and neighbour Primo apparently were up most of the night clearing debris from the openings to allow the water to flow through. Martin's trout ponds depend heavily on this source of water so to have it blocked means his ponds could drain and thousands of fish could die. Not good, to say the least. After many hours of work, the men managed to fix the problem. Welcome to the unpredictable rainy season! It's not without its challenges at times.

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.
