Our temporary home in Costa Rica

Posted on January 13th, 2010 by

We are now pretty settled in the heart of Costa Rica.  The town is Carrillos de Poas, a village of about 5,ooo people nestled among the hills of the Central Valley.  Unlike most villages and towns in Mexico and other Latin American countries that are built around a plaza anchored by a colonial styled church, Carrillos consists of  homes strewn up and down the hilly terrain.   The church is modern and the houses, a mismatch of styles and colors, on streets that  for the most part, lack sidewalks.  What Carrillos lacks in architectural interest is widely compensated by the beauty of the nature sorrounding the area and the warmth of its people.  The fields around us  are cultivated with sugar cane, corn and coffee as far as the eye can see, and the people,  generous of spirit, have fully welcomed us into their lives.
