As I drove Heidi back to my home in San Diego, I didn’t feel sad for leaving my Dad behind. My Dad is with a loved one (and a firecracker at that) who will take care of him.

Heidi is a twelve year old German shepherd who became my house companion in Costa Rica. As a pup, I initially meant to give her to my Dad upon my mother’s passing. I had hoped Heidi would keep my father company when I was away.
This is celebrated in the first two weeks of January in Palmares de Alajuela. Concerts with music, rodeos (even bullfighting) and firework displays are held. There is also a fairground and sporting competitions.
