Wow! Whatta surprise, huh? That was one of the headlines in yesterday’s La Nacion. It seems that once again, our friendly local communications monopoly has been caught totally unawares by the now 15 year old Internet revolution. Apparently, someone in the “strategic planning group” felt that the unprecedented growth of the Internet world-wide simply was not going to affect little old Costa Rica. According to this article, some 36 localities are affected to the point where new connections are very limited.Communications, Costa Rica, ICE, Internet, Life in Costa Rica, Living in Costa Rica, RACSA, Rants, Technical Stuff | Comments (8)

You may recall they have this little “gotcha” policy that prohibits the depositing of any check from outside Costa Rica for the first year, a truly stupid and needless policy for most people and for businesses especially. After 18 months of 100% trouble free banking, I asked that my company accounts be allowed to deposit checks, all from the USA.

As I got a lot of positive feedback from people interested in our weekend excursions, here is a bit of publicity for a new post: “Another Getaway Weekend with my (almost) ex-wife” to be found on my personal Blog, HisFault.
Just no other convenient way to tell RCR Blog readers about a new post. Sorry to those subscribed to both Blogs.Filed under Costa Rica, Costa Rica Tourism, Expatriate Life, Life in Costa Rica, Living in Costa Rica, Travel | Comment (0)
