Stepping off the plane today in Costa Rica, it smells like home. Not a home I ever had, but the one I always wanted – green, lush, ripe white florals, and the smell of rain. And more rain. And more rain.
It’s the rainy season here, so that shouldn’t be a big surprise, but it does shock me just how much it can rain. The result of all that rain is the smell. Rain in a rainforest is the single best smell in existence.
So this is a short post, and I don’t have the winners for last week since the wireless doesn’t reach here into my room in San Jose, and I’ll have to run up to the lobby to get this posted. I did want to thank everyone for all the planting ideas last week, I’ve got a long list of some great recommendations that it may take me five years to work through, but what a fun five years! I will have the winners of the drawing next week. We’ll be in the Osa then, and this time we are told we have internet there. I’m still confoozled by that since it was the one remote place I thought I could run away to where nobody could find me.
Weather smell, what’s your favorite? Snow, rain, warm sunshine on skin?
