Soon, we’ll have decent internet!
Posted August 27, 2011on:
Mark has been trying and trying to get us decent internet since we’ve been here. Sometimes it’s like beating your head against a brick wall….but sometimes being stubborn can be a blessing in disguise.
Finally received some good word on possibly getting a tower built in our development. As of now, we’re the only full timers living here; however, when the other people start arriving, sometime in Nov. we’ve been told, I’m sure they’ll appreciate having a reliable internet source too.
That being said, we’re not holding our breath for it to happen; we’re just encouraged that “talking and communicating” have finally been reached. We’re looking at that as our “giant step for mankind!”
Painters arrived at 6 a.m., yes, on a Saturday, to get the roof of the bodega/carport painted. Even tho’ we had been told the construction workers would be working on Saturday’s too, this is the first Saturday someone has shown up; voila, another giant step in this progression.
Living in Costa Rica means accepting baby steps in getting things accomplished.
A friend told us that you can have a list of 6+ things to get done in a day and if one thing gets done, you’ve accomplished a lot! We think that’s a good motto.
Ciao for now!
