Round and round the soccer field we go…

Do you ever feel like your running around in circles?

Well I was this morning.  By choice.  Around a soccer field.

I haven’t ran in a long time.  AGES, in fact.  But this morning I decided I was going to run with my hubby!  Surely not as far as he was going (he’s training for a half marathon in December), but I wanted to see what I could do.   I hike with him sometimes, and I also do my “100 things” every week day (pushups, squats, lunges, dips); so I knew I wasn’t in that bad of shape.  I also have these super cool running shoes, which I love and haven’t worn in a while:

The Mysterious Spheres – Archaeological Site Finca 6

IMG_1395

When we were in Sierpe, Osa, a few weeks ago, we kept seeing these large stone spheres everywhere around the town and in fields. Here is one in the park ——–>>

Peter (friend, guide, Sierpe guru) had told us that there were several of these large spheres that were found here in Sierpe in the early 1900’s – one of two places in the whole world. Well, this sounded very interesting. How did they get here? People from a long long time ago? Space aliens from a galaxy far far away? Well, the answers were actually not too far away – we soon found out that they have a museum in Finca (farm) 6 – which is where the most recent spheres were found.

My first hair cut in Costa Rica

After living in Costa Rica for over 14 months now, and having trimmed my hair twice myself (yikes!) –  it was time to get a professional hair cut.   My hair needed it and deserved it.  I dearly miss my hair dresser in Dallas – KYLE!!  But since I won’t be going back to the States till at least the Spring of next year, something needed to be done in the interim.

GOING NATIVE! – in Sierpe, Osa, Costa Rica

welcome

Sierpe is a teeny tiny town (population of 1200 or so) in the northern portion of the Osa Penisula, in the south pacific region of Costa Rica. Some tourists use Sierpe as their starting point for visiting Drake Bay and Corcovado National Park. It is very biologically lush with vegetation (think: jungle) and amazing wildlife (think: macaws, crocodiles). This was our first time to visit this part of the country, and I’m so thankful for super cool (taunis!) friends who let us tag along and showed us an amazing time.
