Adios Costa Rica!

Well, here I am sitting at the airport in San Jose waiting to board the plane to Miami and then to back home to my lovely husband in Grand Cayman.

Looking back at this past two weeks I have to say that I am very happy and grateful because I had a wonderful time and I was able to share many good times with a lot of family and friends, some that I have not seen for more than 10 yrs!!!

The party was plenty and the tiredness of it all finally got to me a couple of days ago... Good thing I'm flying back on a Sat. so I can spend all day long on Sunday next to my wonderful man, decompressing and gathering strength to go back to work and back to reality on Monday!

Besides this trip made me realized once again, how proud I am to be from a country like Costa Rica, everywhere you look there are gorgeous scenes, nature is anything but scares and the people are in general very friendly, pleasant and fun.

Last night my aunt took us to a wonderful Japanese Restaurant call Sakura, we had one of those Teppanyaki (which is a style of Japanese cuisine that uses an iron griddle to cook food, it was delicious, I had the Imperial choice (shrimp, beef and chicken), yummy!!!

Well... looks like my flight is starting to board... See ya all!!!

Some of Nature's many jewels

Tuesday we visited the beautiful Else Kientzler Botanical Garden located in a small town of Sarchi here in Costa Rica. After the botanical garden we also visited a small but very nice butterfly farm.

I took tons of pictures but I have not had the time to sort them out never the less the internet connection to even try to upload them, so here are a few of them and I will definitely post more in the future, enjoy!

Another paradise

There are so many beautiful things to see in my country, I am very grateful and happy to be here after all this time, and even though most people I have seeing keep commenting of how I live in paradise, to me CR is another very beautiful paradise.

All of these pictures I took around my parents yard. Tomorrow we are going to a botanical garden that has lots of beautiful plants and flowers but it also has a labyrinth... Can't wait to take lots of pictures!!!!

Blog neglect

It's been a while since the last time I was able to post something on my blog and there are a few reasons why:

1. I've been in Costa Rica since Aug, 20th.
2. I am really full of activities, seeing friends, driving places, and not that much time to spend in front of a computer.
3. It's pretty hard to find a nice, fast and reliable internet connection that will give the chance to actually get something done.
4. Party hardy!
5. I am on vacation!!!

So, here I am tonight, it is almost midnight and I can't sleep, mostly because I am very tired, I've had a weekend full of activities (since Thursday when I had the appointment to renew my American Visa and it got approved so I had to celebrate!).

Also I've been sleeping on a different bed every night since Thursday and besides the point that it's already hard to sleep well without my husband by my side, every night on a different bed, different pillows, different smells, sounds, etc... Not that much fun!

The best bed so far is been the one at my aunt Sonia's house, that bed is even better than mine at home and I felt like i5 was my own private suite just for me...

Besides the sleeping deal and the fact that I really miss my husband and my doggies, I am having a fab time and I finally got the chance to see a lot of people that I haven't seen in a long, long time...

Still I can't wait to go back to my life in Grand Cayman and to see my husband and dogs again.
