Pura Vida!

6 Aug


The de facto greeting from any Tico in Costa Rica: Pura Vida! And like this greeting that springs from the supersaturated jungle foliage, howler-monkey raucous, poison-dart frog chirping, and coffee-cacao-banana-coconut-beans ‘n’ rice country, Ticos are full of life, generous, and likely candidates for people you’d most want to hang with on a deserted island.

With that said, I must postpone the telling of tales until my son and I return from visiting my father (and other family members) in the Midwest. Consider this a “touch and go,” a standard flight exercise for small plane pilots.

Until we return later in August, you all continue to hold down the fort.

    I misread it and thought you wrote “poison fart frog”… kind of changed my view of Costa Rica until I corrected myself. I guess this “tica teaser” will have to hold me over until you get back.

      Perhaps you were channeling my 8-yr-old son. His scatological humor has infiltrated every part of our lives. Lots to come. Stay tuned….

    This is a teasing taster, Jilanne – but one that I enjoyed nonetheless!

    Have a wonderful trip to your father’s and don’t put too much pressure on yourself with the blog posts. I did that and it’s hellish hard to catch up with everything! 🙂
