Sometimes I just want to get away
My mother just sent me a photo of the sunset view from their little house in Costa Rica. They were able to buy a small piece of mountain property about twenty years ago, then they sold half of it and made their money back. They built a house on it a few years ago for a total of $34,000. It was all done by local workmen who emailed photos and questions to my parents, who emailed instructions back. What a wonder of modern technology, huh?
So now, they have a place to escape every once in a while. I am the only one of us six kids who has never been, since I have always had the small problem of airfare for five to contend with. But when I see this photo, I really want to be there, breathing in the humid air and smelling all the green around me.
Here is a shot of the entrance to the house during the daytime.
Who wants to come along?
