We just thought we'd take a moment to thank all of you for your comments. Each one is a joy and makes us feel close to each of you.
Our "home" is very comfy and quite roomy and our favorite spot is on the balcony overlooking the valleys and mountains. The yard is kept beautiful by a gardner and the cleaning lady brings us fresh eggs if we want them. They are brown, green and white!
As we have not rented a car we travel where we want to go by bus or by the grace of our wonderful rentors. The trip to the bus stop consists of about a 10 or 15 minute walk down to the bus stop and up to come home. The road is very steep, pot holed gravel and we share it with Ticos, dogs, chickens, roosters and one lot full of broken down cars. We love the exercise and don't even mind carrying our groceries up the hill from Ciudad Colon where shopping and the bus stop are located. We've met Enreique who owns the fruit and vegetable stand in Ciudad Colon and he has wonderful produce.
Once we are back home and we continue climbing up the hill, it gets steeper and ruttier but from the top it is an unbelievable view of the Central Valley.
It's getting late and since we've been up since before 3 a.m. we are going to end this for tonight. Love to all, you are in our hearts and thougths!! Don & Sharon
