Tomorrow marks the start of our sixth, and final week in San Juan del Sur.It has been such a remarkable experience, one that we will not soon forget.There is such a strong feeling of community here.Pretty well everyone knows who you are, and where you are from.In the time we have been here we have met many people who came here for a short holiday and they loved it so much that they sold everything and moved here for good.Ross and I are not quite there in terms of moving here permanently, but with the way the economy in Canada is going, it is not something we would dismiss altogether. Time will tell............
Tonight there is a community event going on at the SJdS Art Gallery. It is a 50's sock hop night and the whole town is invited. All the procedes will go to the Jean Brugger foundation and aid the school children in town. I know it will be a blast. So I will have a good post for tomorrow........
Hasta pronto!

I am reading a ton online about SJDS and I have throughly enjoyed your posting!!! I am set to arrive in Nica on March 16th and I just hate that you are not going to be there still when I get in. I would have loved to meet up with you so you could show my friends and myself the ropes. We are very excited about our adventure and will use much of your advice from your posting. Thanks for the info and safe travels!
