Dancing for Happy in our Awesome Southern Zone of Costa Rica

It's a great idea to disconnect all electronics during these wild lightning and thunder storms we are enjoying this Rainy Season ... stories of fried appliances are not much fun. (Haven't confirmed lately ... but ICE used to cover appliances burned during storms if you reported it within 10 daysand had all receipts ... let me know if anyone has discussed this with ICE lately).

Also about ICE .. it's useful to know that rates are much lower between 8pm and 6am (less than half the rate of other times). A big savings with dryers, dehydrators and the like.

There have been several reports of Dengue in the Dominical area ... I heard there may be up to 20 cases. You don't want to get it, I promise you. Keep your body protected from bites is super important.

Colibri's Corner is now open until 8pm on Thursday evenings ... nite time at the PZ feria is always a totally interesting experience. Drop by and say "hi" to Adria ... and enjoy the atmosphere of the Nite Feria. And remember .. .we are open on Fridays til 1pm also.

Welcome York University to the Santa Elena area ...
