Tom has been in Puerto Viejo since Wednesday getting everything ready for the final move. He and Doug left Moscow on Tuesday morning at 7:00 a.m. and arrived in Puerto Viejo around 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday. By the time they got to bed that night they had been up for about 40 hours and were completely exhausted. They have spent the last few days hanging around PV and recuperating and seeing the town. I am so disappointed because Doug has not seen any birds or animals during his time there and that is part of the pleasure of being in Costa Rica – seeing all the diverse wildlife. Hopefully he and Joyce will be able to come back some day and they can experience more of what we love about the country. They have been able to eat at some really good restaurants and they have been able to walk on the beach every morning. So it hasn’t been all bad 🙂
It is just forty days before we fly out and work is definitely winding down. They had a failed search for my job and so are going back out to try again. That means they won’t have anyone in place anytime soon and everyone reporting to me is feeling very unsettled. I feel bad because there is nothing I can do to help. All I can do is assume they will figure it out.
