Tamarindo Talk

April 23, 2010

More than 200 people gathered in Playa Langosta to honor the memory of 4-year-old Greta Beltramo Guglielmino, who died last week in an accident at a local playground. The daughter of Letizia Guglielmino and Carlo Beltramo, owners of the Educarte school, Greta was honored with a welcome introduction by Gabriela Bodini, a reading by Gabriela Valenzuela and Natasha Pachano, and words from her mother. Children released a plethora of white balloons with notes written on them into the sky.

Natasha organized the event with help from Severine Hamel, Bruno Dubreuil, Wim Van Cleynenbreugel, Erasmo Rossi, Cristiano Compagnino, Angelo Bertaz,” Cesare Iannone, Lucía Guzmán, Francois Bel, Dorri Matthews, Kandice Jiwon Sul, Rafael Rodríguez, Jay Medina, José Chopite, Veronica Rojas and others.

I made a mistake a couple of weeks ago when I listed the times for yoga at Ser Om Shanti. Vinyasa flow classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays are at 7:30 a.m., not p.m. The Tuesday 5:30 p.m. class is “Hatha Yoga: Alignment Awareness” and the Thursday 5:30 p.m. class is vinyasa flow.

Also new at Ser is a Zumba class Mondays at 3:30 p.m., taught by Norma Calderón. Zumba is a mix of dance and gymnastics.The cost of the class is ¢4,000 ($7.70).

Despite a low turnout, the Asociación Integral de Tamarindo elected new officers at a recent meeting: Costa Rican attorney Leyden Briceño, president; Jogi Gerner, vice president; and Elineth Espinoza Brawn, treasurer.
