For What Ails You - Tea!

A journey to the grocery is still interesting.  Although we've become accustomed to life here in Costa Rica, every once in a while we find something that makes us smile.

Let us introduce you to tea - a cure for many ailments.  Not only can you find a variety of flavors, but you can also find a tea for a specific medical problem.  Here are just a few:

This tea will help with digestion.
(Check out the price too.)

. . . a tea to for your colon, indigestion, and colitis.

 Finally - a tea to calm you down.

No need for a pharmacy, we can just head to the tea aisle in the grocery store.

God's Artistry

We are blessed with a spectacular view from our apartment, and during the last couple of weeks we have been awestruck with the beauty of several sunsets.  We wish you could be here to enjoy them with us and see just how vibrant the colors really are.

Street "Signs"

As I was walking down the street last week, I noticed dead palm tree branches in the middle of the road.  Even here that isn't the norm.

Turns out there is a big hole in the middle of the road.  Someone got tired of waiting for the officials to fix it, and for over a week these branches have prevented damage to many cars.

Even though this doesn't solve the problem, we have come to love the way Ticos manage to make things work while waiting and waiting on officials.
