Pura Vida

Another cool morning In Lake Arenal. Overcast and early morning rain. It is the rainy season. I woke up to the singing of birds. 4:30am I was wide awake. Fixed my self a healthy shake and began to catch up on words with friends. Corina and I have relocated here a year now. We love it here and bought a piece of property. Because of family illness Corina had to go to the USA and will be back shortly. Good health is so important  for Pura Vida (the good life). Here in Costa Rica,  the Lake Arenal area we are one step ahead of the USA. WE have quality air to breathe. A lot less cars and fewer people to cause congestion . I changed my eating habits because there are a lot less restaurants and no fast foods here. McDonalds is an hour and a half away. Rice and beans is the main staple here: rice and eggs,rice and chicken or beef.

I get tired of rice and beans so I have fruit. We have fresh fruit everyday. I lost fifty-five pounds here in our first year here. I hope to lose fifty more pounds, although it is coming off slowly. I am happy about my weight loss. A total of one hundred plus pounds in the last five  years.

We travel a little bit, San Jose, Liberia and the Pacific Coast. It is so beautiful here we do not have the urge to travel to other places. Now we will work at Pura Vida and start to build our home. The dogs are getting restless. Time to go for a walk.
