We sent Alex's old Jeep to Costa Rica about a year and a half ago, and it has been at John's in San Jose. John's workers took out all the rust and repainted it, and it looks fantastic, especuially with the big off-road tires. Jim had to get it registered in San Jose before the inspection expired on Monday, and then he drove it up to Monteverde last Friday. Yesterday we had the winch soldered on, so we are ready for some off-road driving. Luckily, most of the normal roads here fit that description. We went to a party last Saturday night at a friend's house in Monteverde and drove our next door neighbors home in the Jeep. Mark was visiting, so that made 8 of us riding in the Jeep! It was a lot of fun.
Jim's friend Mark came for a short visit on the weekend. We all bought some beautiful jewelry from a Chilean guy on his way back to Guatemala. Kev got a Chilean arrow head on a leather necklace and Mark got a shark tooth crowned with turquoise and a garnet. I got a really different necklace made from two pieces of amber framed in silver and mounted on a seed cover.
We did some walking on our farm, and we're looking forward to fixing up the road on the farm enough so that we can drive in soon. When I walk along the road by the farm it feels like I'm on the top of the world, as it's the highest elevation as far as the eye can see.
Happy belated birthday! And I'm glad you got that steering wheel fixed--no one but you could "handle" that situation so cooly!Post a Comment
