Doesn't this look peaceful? We discovered this idyllic lot in Costa Rica in 2012. Sunshine, nature and the ocean hugging the cliffs in the distance. Heaven. We visited this empty lot several times. In the morning for sunrise. And in the evening for sunset. We'd bring up an imperial and celebrate another day of pura vida. Flash forward to 2015. It's still available! Who could resist this beauty? Who could resist this stunning view?
Well, there is a down side....This location in Dominical combined with the perfect storm of elevation results in a roaring symphony at night. A cacophony of cicadas. All screaming at the same time. It is unbelievable really. You have to hear it with your own ears. Or not! Ha!

I couldn't resist posting my cicada illustrations from my jungle journal full of illustrated poems this week for noise. The www.illustrationfriday.com theme. Boy, nothing can prepare you for the deafening screams of a Costa Rica cicada. Somewhere between the elevation of 1,000-3,000 feet, the cicadas go hog wild. Like I said, we drove up to our Costa Rica lot again this year. Just like old times. It was still deafening. Hmmm. I wonder why it is still available.
