Happy 3rd year in Costa Rica!
Well, that went by quickly! Three years ago today, we landed here and started a whole new life. And never doing anything by half measure, we've certainly jumped in with both feet. It's been enjoyable to write about our adventure along the way, and we're ever so grateful for all our readers. We get so many comments here and emails encouraging us... it's really lovely. Thank you!
This last week, we had to drive down to San Jose to renew our "cedula" (the name they use for temporary residency). Everything went well for Kevin, no problems. When it was my turn, apparently our joint health card (one card for both Kevin and me) had the wrong expiry date. Although it was fine for Kevin's application, it came up as invalid for me, which was all a bit odd (but as we say "Costa Rica, baby!"). I had to go into San Marcos on Wednesday to update our health card, which was easily done. Now that's been sorted out, I have to go back to San Jose this coming Wednesday to go through the process again. No biggie, a bit of a nuisance, but it's rare that we have these types of issues, so we're counting our blessings.
We've been enjoying some beautiful weather these past couple of weeks. The calm before the gush of rain in September and October. We're enjoying the sunshine while it lasts.

Congratulations - well 3 years tells you alot, it's hard to be clear how well things are going before 3 years but after that the future becomes clearer. Think of what you have accomplished in 3 years! Amazing. Now I've just read that you can buy whole abandoned villages in Spain, with outbuildings, barns, pastures etc. As successful pioneers in one country the world is your oyster now! You certainly haven't missed much of a Canadian summer...cold and rainy today.

Thank you, Ingrid! Not sure we're up for buying a Spanish village, but hey, you never know with us! Hahaha!
