Words Aren't Enough

The sky is filled with puffy white clouds, the ocean is so calm that there is hardly a wave to be seen, and the temperature hovers right around 86 degrees Fahrenheit (30 degrees Celsius).

When I went out on the balcony late this morning, a light wind was blowing. It didn't feel hot at all. It felt just right.

I love it here.

Now if only gas were cheaper...

I filled up Cal's truck yesterday and it set me back $52. In the three weeks since we have been on island, gas has increased about 15 cents to settle at $3.19/gallon. And when I say settle, I mean it in the loosest of terms, because I know the price is just going to keep going up and up.

Happy Earth Day, Everyone!

$2.90 and rising in MASS. Paid $42 to fill my tank yesterday.

Approximately $4 per gallon and rising in Monteverde. We pay by liters and in colones, so it doesn't seem so bad until you fork over the equivalent of $60-$70 to fill up.

Hi Debbie,

We should get together sometime when you arrive. Where will you be working? What village are you living in?
