Well I have arrived safely to Costa Rica.
It is good to feel pretty much at home here, My host Joaquin has been most gracious at opening his home to me. He has an other friend here as well from CA name Erin, so we are a full house, with little Adso as well, his schnawzer puppy who I have taken on to train. Erin is an artist as well who is trying to set up a retreat here for artists. Quite a project.
It was quite a long day getting here. Left the house at 3:30 in the morning with no sleep, Thankfully there were no problems with the planes, except that at 11:00 the night before I have received a call that my original flight out of Kennedy had been cancelled, and I had to leave from Laguardia instead. There was one scary moment when I accidently boarded a plane to San Jose, CA instead of San Jose, Costa Rica. Joaquin came to pick me up at the airport, for the first time my bag was checked by Customs because a container of flax seed husks had opened all over my bag. I just got a reprimand instead. Oh an back to the life again. Doing the kind of things I never do in NY like attending the opening of some new trendy bar with all the young a beautiful people of San Jose. Playing lots of techno music and even the press were milling about.
At the moment there is no water, but we took Adso for a walk to the market for fresh fruit. SO take care my friends. There is a bit of adjusting to do, but so far I am looking ahead with open eyes and fun in my heart. We had hoped to be off to the North to a beach for the weekend, but we lost our ride, and a bus would be for 6 hours, but hopefully I will work out a deal to take spanish classes next week.
I went and saw the gallery dealer Jacob karpio on Friday and we are off and working to prepare me for a show here. Maybe a two person show instead. I have many ideas to work on, the hardest part is gathering all the materials to work with, but I have many connections here to find such things. now is time for lunch, being cooked by Boli, a friend of Erin’s. the weather is just beautiful here, not too cold, not too hot, no rain at the moment. Maybe tomorrow we might take a drive out to a nearby National Park.
I hope you enjoy my little sketches of the life here. It you wish for me to take you off this mailing please let me know, I will understand.
