Have you ever dreamed about that little piece of paradise that is all your own? We did! ... and so we bought a piece of land in Costa Rica and built our dream home. This is our window on life on the Pacific coast - and the complications of things that hold us in Toronto.
Gone is the rustic charm of driving through the river - no more can I see the shocked look on people's faces when I say, "you go off to the right and down through the river".
I must say it was part of normal life in Costa Rica - the challenges, the lack of infrastructure, the making due - - we have only experienced it for short periods, not like our friends who have been here full time for almost 5 years! A whole lot has changed - things that make life easier - more like North America - good in one respect, but sad in another.
Well, no more worrying about being able to get home when the sky suddenly goes dark and the rain comes down in buckets!
