Arenal Report

May 1, 2009

Your Arenal community reporter cannot write much about events around our spectacular lake this week, having spent most of April in an involuntary comparative study of burn treatment facilities within and without Costa Rica’s national health care system, specifically San Juan de Dios Hospital and the private Clínica Bíblica Hospital, both in San José. I will probably summarize my observations later in a letter to the editor.

A recent e-mail from “neighbors” at LakeArenal announced that these neighbors have started the first free localized Facebook-type Web site at duralavida.com (sounds like a good motto to me). In addition, they claim to already have a “bunch” of members and multiple uses.
