Spending the day in San Jose on Friday, I almost had to break my rule of no socks. Leaving my house in Tamarindo at 6:30 a.m. for the 7:00 flight, it was so warm but I knew that when I stepped off the plane at 8:00, it would be cold…bitterly cold compared to Tamarindo. Okay, so it was probably 70 degrees but that’s cold for me now (and I’m so grateful for that). At about 5:00 that afternoon, I was in a meeting and during the break, my boss, trying to convince me to move to Escazu, a city near San Jose, said to me, “Chrissy, it’s not that cold here”. I stepped outside and instantly felt the chill in the air. It was cold.
But that’s why I chose to live at the beach, besides the fact that it’s the beach and I can afford it, amongst other things. Unlike in Northern California where the inland regions are hot and the beaches are foggy and cold in the summer, it’s the exact opposite here.
In the last year, I’ve done a lot of flying over Costa Rica and Nicaragua on Costa Rica’s two carbon neutral airlines, Nature Air and Sansa. I thought to celebrate my 90 days, I’d share with you my photos from flying over these two beautiful countries. I’m sure you’ll understand why I love it here so much. Enjoy…
