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

chapter 29 continued

So what does all this have to do with women?  Oh wonderful creatures that they are when they like you…  and in this country where everyone seems to either know or be related to someone in a position of influence…  I just happen to have a friendship going with (she shall remain nameless because there are a zillion “Maria’s” here).

This nice lady has an uncle in a position of influence in the municipality.  Now don’t get excited.  I’m not, because the “Maria” that I really like I only get to see rarely (five hours each way by bus) and that’s only when she’s in town because she works way south of S.J.

Where as this one is only thirty five minutes and she doesn’t have a car (big advantage for me, no drop in).   And just for the record.   I did tell her that I have a girl friend in San Jose not long after we met (three or four dates).  She paused for a moment… then asked if she could come for dinner.  Women… they never cease to amaze me.  I long ago gave up trying to understand or second guess them.  Quite frankly, I was prepared to hear her say “good by” when I told her that I had a “girl friend”.  But who am I to argue with her decision?

So anyway, she contacted her uncle (actually, she took me to his house for an introduction) and after helping me draft two different letters to two different departments in the municipality I am now waiting to be contacted by someone from the municipality to arrange a face to face meeting.
