How Sweet to be in the Mystical Southern Zone of Costa Rica


Leda Robertson's Magical Colibri

Welcome New Members and long term Chayotevine Friends!

Seems like lots amongst us are still a bit 'shell shocked' from Nate ... and indeed there are still schools and bridges and communities far from being back to normal. The best news is the Bailey Bridge at La Palma gently connecting San Isidro de General with Dominical and all points North & South on the Pacific Coast ... will be opening very soon. Highway 2 or our dear "Cerro de la Muerte" has tried to open a few times, but any rain and more slides are occurring. Best to use other routes still to head to San Jose, albeit they are longer if all goes well. And once again, our Community absolutely showed up and helped those in need in countless situations ... infinite thanks to all who reached out.

At Colibri's Corner this week, we have newly in, Organic Pejibaye flour, organic vanilla extract, Scrumptious Kale Chips, and Diane's Flaxxers are back!!!

Have a new supply of classic used books right now ... Carlos Castaneda and much more!
