Driving Into the Hills of Atenas

As with any good coffee farming town, Atenas is in the hills below the big mountains and away from the plains of the big city of San Jose. Yesterday as my taxista drove me back home from a doctor appointment in the city, I cellphone-snapped these photos of the approaching hills as we neared Atenas. No great photos but they bear testimony of the terrain of my little pueblo.

And by the time we were at my house, the clouds had moved in for the afternoon rain. 🙂

¡Pura Vida!

    1. Steve,
      You should know by now that the rainy season is also known as the Green Season and it is my favorite time of year! Not only is it cooler and greener but there are fewer northerners down here then. 🙂 Love it!
