Last week, I was sitting in an internet cafe writing my blog post. We were without internet for 11 days. On Monday, I went back to the ICE office in San Marcos to "whine" again. The same man attended to me and he was trying to convince me that the problem was due to new cables being installed to replace the old ones. I, in turn, explained that although I understood that there's a project underway to upgrade the cables, it made no sense that our neighbours all have phone and internet service and we do not. I could see the light go on and he finally understood the situation. Within two hours, the technicians were at our place repairing the problem. And bingo! We are now sitting in the comfort of our living room with a clear phone line and stable internet. We expect that at some point in the near future we may be without service again when they do replace the cables, but we can live with that when it happens.
We've had a busy week with trout fishing, which is always good. And, one Great Blue Heron has taken the place of the Osprey in our tall spindly tree above the big pond. Last night, as the sun was going down, I was able to capture his silhouette against the dim grey sky.
We look forward to seeing our guests from Oregon again... they're becoming "regulars". It's so lovely to have repeat business from people that we now call friends. We've also heard from another set of guests that we hosted twice. This French couple have since bought a property and built a house in Samara, on the Nicoya peninsula. I met up with them last year while they were pondering the purchase. They've been sharing their journey with us and keeping us posted on the progress. Hopefully, we'll be able to go visit them sometime soon. It appears we have gained friends from all over the world, which is really fun.
