We Got Our Rainbow

fig house

We are now in Monteverde Costa Rica staying in the spacious Fig House in the foreground of this photo.  Our hosts Risë and Dario and their two sons live in the blue house just behind us. Risë is a teacher in a local school and Dario is a graphic designer. Risë is orginally from Baltimore, Maryland and Dario from Bogota, Columbia but they met right here in Monteverde in 2003. Fig House was built by Risë’s mother and she lives there half the year. When she is back in the United States Risë and Dario rent her house out to guests. The house is almost brand new and absolutely gorgeous.  You can see lots of photos of the finely crafted  interior here.  rainbow monteverdeOn its website the house is shown with a beautiful rainbow and we wondered if we would see one too.   Sure enough our first morning here there was a rainbow in the sky that lasted for a long time.  As the sun rose higher and higher the rainbow sank lower and lower till it disappeared.  It was lovely to watch from the comfy hammock chairs on our front porch. rainbow 1

The true harvest of my life is intangible – a little star dust caught, a portion of the rainbow I have clutched – Henry David Thoreau
