The ICE technicians came by and only spoke Spanish. I understood most of what they were saying, which surprised even me. They came in, checked our phone line and after 15 minutes came to the conclusion that the distance of our house from the hub in Copey is not an issue. That is FANTASTIC news!! However, our phone line has deteriorated badly and needs replacing, so they have to come back sometime next week. So, the good news is high-speed internet coming right to our house is possible, the bad news is we have to wait a little while longer. We will gladly wait if it means being able to sit in the privacy of our own home to get online. And hopefully, the high speed version here will be high speed enough to Skype!! To see my kids' faces and have a nice conversation with them is what I long for most.

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.
