Sounds from Sámara
From opening day in August 2010, the wholesome Thai food at Kaibella Restaurant in central Sámara has proven to be a big hit, with mouthwatering dishes and a welcoming atmosphere. The delightful owner, Belle Richardson, is a Canadian transplant who chose to use her abbreviated personal motto, “Keep At It, Belle,” as the restaurant name; she says it’s a good way to keep herself focused.
She discovered Sámara while vacationing and returned to follow her dream. Kaibella opened with seating for just 12, but soon expanded to host 30 guests. Belle also brews Kombucha, a delicious and amazingly healthy fermented tea. For reservations or takeout, call 8722-2394.
Samára Infocenter (SIC) celebrated its one-year anniversary last week. Brenda Draggone’s indefatigable effort and enthusiasm have made the SIC the go-to resource for information about the Sámara area.
If you are a shutterbug and would like an opportunity to have a photo published, the Del Sol magazine’s photography contest may interest you. The winning photo will appear on the upcoming magazine’s front cover with a photo and interview of the photographer on an inside page.
Pictures should be taken in the Sámara/Nosara/Carrillo area; the specific requirements are at http://www.revistadelsol.com. You may send questions and submit your entry to firstname.lastname@example.org.
