My Sure Signs I’m Becoming Used to Life in Rural Costa Rica
Sunny did a helluva a job coming up with 25 signs she is becoming used to life in Costa Rica.
Everything on her list applies to me too.But I thought it might be fun to take a minute to reflect on our life at Sedolsoder, Guacimo de Atenas, Costa Rica.
- Following cows up the road as they return to the finca is a highlight of the day.
- Laughing at cows bellowing.
- Morning routine includes looking towards Puriscal to make sure it didn’t slide down the mountain.
- When a horse takes a dump in front of the gate, I just clean it up.
- Giving people rides to town isn’t “picking up hitch-hikers,” it’s helping neighbors.
- “Toucans!” Will make me stop what I’m doing and scour the sky.
- Chattering parrots are white noise.
- I know exactly where to stand outside to get the best cell phone signal.
- Accepting that I will always have wet-feet: in dry season because I’m watering or cleaning pool filter or hosing the dirt of the rancho; in wet season because I always wear flip-flops.
- I always wear flip-flops because the bottoms of my feet are like leather.
- We laugh when the iguanas who live in our roof, scramble up and down the tin.
- When a bird flies in the house, I can guide him back out.
- Realizing the cargo shorts are immensely handy.
- Replaced “can you hear me now,” with ” ¡alo!… ¡alo!… ¡alo!… ¡alo!“
- Cheering and waving and thumbs-up when any road work gets done.
Hi… Loved Sunny’s 25-Reasons… post. Laughingly have to agree!
