Hola!! from Costa Rica...





the bohemian has been off gallivanting around in Costa Rica.  she and her hubby were team leaders for a 20 person mission team that went to a small village of mostly Nicaraguans, where they worked on a church building, did children's programs, a ministry day to the women in which the team painted fingernails and toenails, washed their feet, performed a drama, gave them snacks and did a craft with them. 
can you tell the team came from Washington state?
this was a sign one of the team members carved and the whole team signed. it went up in the church building.
another carved sign, on beautiful Costa Rican wood...
the boemian is so enthralled with all the flowers here!! the bougainvillea, the hibiscus, the house plants on steroids...
the team's fashionable and appropriate footwear for rainy season in a red dirt village...  the team members all took painty pens to their boots to tell them apart (20 pairs of boots in the entryway!).  of course, the bohemian had bubbles on hers!!
The team got to go on a jungle walk to see howler monkeys, those small monkeys that set the jungle arumble with their grande howls...

and the rain came down, and down, and down.... but in between the downpours, the team got their projects done and a wonderfull time in the little village of Llano Verde... the Green Plain, with the startling red dirt.  Summer wishes to you all, may it never rain on your parade, but rain just enough to send you rainbows!!!
