Happy Easter to you all!

Are you interested in reading about our area through the eyes of an expat?The Golden Gringo Chronicles is a monthly newsletter about life in Latin America in general and about our area in particular. It relates the experiences of Bob Normand, a lucky (golden) expat who’s had the good fortune to retire in Ticoland. In addition to features on local culture and happenings, each issue includes a restaurant review section called the ROMEO Corner (Retired Old Men Eating Out). If you would like to receive the Chronicles each month, please send an email requesting a free subscription to bob@bobnormand.com.

This week the Feria (Farmer’s Market) might be held early because of Good Friday.  They haven’t notified the participants yet so we can’t give the actual date, but it could be Tuesday and Wednesday, or Wednesday and Thursday.  While at the Feria, look for the new kids on the block. Jungle Juice is now going to have a booth stocked with food and smoothies.
