Costa Rica is one of the loveliest places I've ever been. The scenery was spectacular. The people were friendly and helpful. On one of our excursions was to a rain forest. We rode a lift to the canopy and back. Then a guide took us on a nature walk. He showed us plants that were native to Costa Rica. He showed us (caged) native snakes. He was asked if people kill snakes in Costa Rica he said the people of Costa Rica protect every part of their environment, even snakes. Recently, I heard Costa Rica is one of the happiest and healthiest countries. I can believe it. I'd go again in a heartbeat. Next time, I'd like to fly over a volcano on a helicopter and then hike to the top of it.
Paradise can be anywhere. You just have to look for it. This fall, paradise for me has been sitting with my computer, under my mama blanket, and a book on the veranda. Where is your everyday paradise?
