The men of the community came together to fix the bridge yesterday. Kevin was among them. It was raining pretty much non-stop all day. Crazy hard work, but if we wait around for the municipality to come to the rescue it could take weeks. Our community doesn't look to others to fix our problems, we band together and rely on ourselves. It's very empowering on many levels.
Kevin was waist deep in the cold, cold river water moving rocks and logs out of the pipes. His rubber boots have a hole in them so his feet were drenched all day. I'm amazed he didn't catch pneumonia.

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.
