Posts on the daily life, challenges and joys of retirement in Costa Rica by a retired U.S. expat from Oregon
I enjoyed the Photo Album greatly.Aparently you live in P.Z. unlike most expats that live in the Central Valley.I've always thought that P.Z. would be the first place that I would settle if I moveed to Costa Rica.How is it vs. the Central Valley?Bill Huffsqdncertrucker@windstream.net
Bill, I think I emailed you, but the brain grows fuzzy ... In case I didn't, here's the short version: PZ is much more tranquil and old-fashioned than the Central Valley area. If you follow forums about CR, you will see most members are from the Valley and they talk a lot about break-ins, being careful, shopping at expensive places, etc. If you need top-of-the-line shopping and infrastructure, the Valley is for you. Here, there is "enough" of everything and people are still quite friendly. Not too much excitement, though. :)
I would love it if you guested blogged for me .I will send you an invitation to be an admin so you can write a post then I will add you to my blogroll
Casey--For Tamara, if you would be so kind: Tamara, how are you feeling? I'm pleased that so far as WE know everything is going well with you. We thoroughly enjoy your sunny personality and will come for a visit in person as soon as we are able. That may be hindered by the cloudy economy up here, but nevermind. I am a magnet for miracles! In the meantime, soak up the sun of the universe and heal well, our energies are with you. Much love, Trish & Leonardo
Tamara is doing fine, still feeling great. Hope you guys can make it down here in the near future.
I am trying to get my citizenship too. What a hassle. I heard that the USA had increased their fees to denounce their citizenship, because there are no more duel citizenship.
You heard wrong. They simply increased the fees. Dual citizenship is not affected. Suggest you Google the Wikipedia page, it explains all.
Thanks so much for your comment! - Casey
