Greetings to all my "friends" on this forum. It's like sitting on a comfortable sofa, having a nice cup of tea or coffee with friends and talking about anything and everything. We don't always agree, but that's OK and leads to a lively and informative forum.

 

Best to you all for 2017 with my dear hope that it is a better year than 2016!!

 

I don't celebrate Christmas, but this Christmas was probably my best ever since I got to participate in handing out parcels of cash to families who lost everything in Hurricane Otto, thanks to generous donations. Each of the 28 families got 200,000 colones and we have another distribution in a couple of weeks. We divided "the list" and being able to hand this cash to these 14 precious families made the year less painful for me and some of the most rewarding experiences ever. I'm a lucky guy!

 

Lucky to be living in Costa Rica and lucky to be able to be a conduit for helping these people. And yes, I get ALL the hugs and the people who made it possible - the donors - just get a "thank you!" :D

 

Feliz año nuevo!

My esposo has a plane ticket to CR to spend NYE with the family. My Christmas surprise was a ticket for me too! He bought it with his miles (he travels internationally about 50% for his job)

 

I'm so happy to go (to 2nd) home!!! Only a few days but it'll be great to see family, friends, and SUN. ;)
