Our First Christmas in Costa Rica

Posted on: December 25, 2011

Wow!  Can hardly believe we actually live here – and Christmas is almost over.

Since I still don’t have window treatments yet in the bedroom, and the window wall that faces the valley; let’s just say it was way cool to lay in bed and watch the fireworks from the other mountain range we face!  Costa Ricans celebrate Christmas on Dec. 24 and Dec. 25 is just another day to them.

We were invited to Bruce and Frances’ for Christmas dinner; it was unbelievably delish!  Turkey!!!! Dressing, homemade green bean casserole that was way better than the mushroom soup version!  And a host of other food….I don’t think we’ll eat again till….well, maybe sometime late tomorrow.

After dinner we wandered out onto the rancho and as if on cue, there were toucans in the trees.  They are so colorful!  And really interesting to watch as they flew from tree to tree.

As I’m writing this, it’s about 7:15 p.m. and 73 degrees.   Christmas was wonderful – being able to have windows open, priceless!!! $$$$$ saved…..

We had a very nice Christmas with friends and hope everyone else had wonderful Christmases too!!!

For the last time this year….Feliz Navidad!

Pura Vida.
