SO YOU WANT to LIVE in COSTA RICA the Adventures, Trials and Tribulations of Settling in Paradise by Gary Davis –

24 Feb

chapter 28 continued

Around 4pm here they came being towed by a local guy with a pick up truck.  It turned out that the workers who are in the process of completing the paving of the highway from Santa Cruz to Paraiso had made them make a detour in Paraiso, which is only about two kilometers from Plumita Pacifica, but it put them on very unmaintained dirt roads and a very circuitous route of more than five kilometers which included crossing a stream in order to get to Plumita.

Even though the stream is only about six inches deep, it appears they thought they had to go fast to get across it which had the effect of spraying water onto parts of the engine that don’t react well to being drenched.  So it died in the middle of the stream, literally.

If it doesn’t start tomorrow…

But the sliding glass doors and windows now have special locks on the tracks for extra security.

P.S. It is now two and a half years later and there have been NO repeat violations of or on the property!  That’s no guarantee of course but it is comforting.
