The last time I went up the mountain in front of my house, I couldn't get my car turned around because it kept stalling. Mountains are tricky to me (I'm from the 'flatlands') and I was terrified of not having power and rolling over the side of this huge mountain. It's a long way down and I had all my dogs with me.
This morning, after a long wait for the car parts and getting my car fixed, me and the dogs go up the mountain for sunrise. THREE lights came on my car this time but I did get turned around and made it back home. Car problems in Costa Rica can be very frustrating....(you would know what I mean if you live here and have them, it's not the same as in the States by a long shot).
Thank you God for the beautiful sunrise and regardless, I still love living here.
Postnote: I called my mechanic and he is coming out to my house to check on my car. Now, like I said, it can be frustrating having car problems in Costa Rica but where in the world does a mechanic come to your home on a Sunday (with a broken ankle) to check your car? I made my 'almost famous' chocolate chip/oatmeal cookies for him and his family. I am so grateful.
