Our TBT adventure this week brings us back to Costa Rica. We had been living there for about 5 months and our 3rd wedding anniversary was quickly approaching. My lips are smacking just thinking about it. Bon Appetit!!
This edition of TBT takes us to Costa Rica circa 2007. In 2006 we packed our bags and moved from NYC to a small town in the Central Valley of Costa Rica called Atenas. Atenas is approximately 20 km from Juan Santamaria International Airport, and 35 km from the national capital city of San Jose, all the while surrounded by mountains and coffee plantations.
While the district of Atenas has over 25,000 inhabitants, the town itself (which is where we lived) has only about 5,000. Quite a change from the big city life we were used to. The best part of our decision to move to Costa Rica was that we got Flaca, our 4-legged offspring who has changed our lives for the better. But more on Flaca another time.
