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. 

Kathy Lander and Jo Ann Jones brought their annual yoga retreat to Manuel Antonio.  Jo Ann is the author of “The Anatomy of Exercise & Movement, for the Study of Dance, Pilates, Sport and Yoga.”  If you are interested in joining them check out www.neatretreats.com. Meanwhile if you would like yoga classes here, give a call to Mark Goldstein of PranaVida Wellness studio at 8388-6960. 

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.

Have you been looking for a place to get your haircut with someone who speaks English?  Well, we have the stylist from Beverly Hills for you: Monica Mosapor.  Her business is called Hair by Monica, and she can come to you or you can go to her.  She cuts and styles hair and does wedding up-dos, feather extensions, color, highlights and more.  For more information and to see her website photo gallery, go to www.costaricahair.com or call her at 8658-1281.
