The most stressful part of the day -- What wine to select for sunset?

I like to think that when we are in Costa Rica, the most stressful part of the day is to decide what wine to select to await the sunset from the balcony/patio of our Langosta beach condo.

We usually select a Malbec from Argentina or another red wine from Chile.  We figure that it does not make sense to buy California wines in Costa Rica that we can get easily in the USA.  And French wines tend to be more expensive in Costa Rica than Argentine or Chilean wines.

Of course, there are causes of stress, even in paradise.  Usually it involves the work that we are doing using our USA phone line and internet connection to the office.

One possible source of stress in Tamarindo is to make sure that you get gas before you get into town because there is no gas station in Tamarindo or in Villareal, the nearest town.  The closest gas station is about 10 minutes inland.

This week we are showing photos of the architecture of Grenada, Nicaragua on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

I like that even if you have work to do while you are there, you always stop to watch the sunset.

And then there is the problem of deciding if you want to watch the sunset from the balcony or take a sunset walk on the beach. It's just all too much stress.

There are other stressors like where to dine.

That sounds like so much stress. . . poor Dave!
