—Vida y tiempo—
When I started Residencias Los Jardines, I started writing a weekly news letter —determined to tell all the good, bad, and the ugly. I knew some readers would be interested in the construction process. I expected others might be interested in the lifestyle of two people who had decided to live outside the box. For others, the adventures of Lita, the parrot and the cat took on an entertainment saga all its own.
Residencias Los Jardines is finished. We periodically have resales and rental availability. Some readers may be interested in this information.
More and more, the content will be dominated by events of our new project, "El Dorado" for short. While the future is always uncertain, I again aim to tell it like it happens —the good, the bad, and the ugly, and that is what follows.
In an effort to make the format more interesting and visually appealing and to field inquiries re. El Dorado, the news letter is now being distributed by Jan Kozak, Marketing Manager, Hacienda El Dorado. I will remain the author.

Costa Rica has been the model country that others aspire to be. The literacy rate stands at 96 percent, it abolished its army in 1949, it is considered the greenest country in the world, it plans to be the first carbon-neutral country by 2021, and 23 percent of the country is designated as a protected conservation site. Today it can add another unique designation, as it put aside gender barriers to elect a female president.
