Ghee-yad, I hate that word. Is it even a word? I guess so. Coined by psychologists, no doubt. I hate to admit it, but I need some. Not for Costa Rica, but for the U.S.
We left there in such a hurry… kinda like how we are leaving Costa Rica. But we left for a year, not five. Not permanently. There is talk among expats of "why do people leave?" commitment to living in costa rica
don't move here and expect to last if you don't have that. we stumbled in, fell in love.
