My mistake

At some point I estimated the distance from home to school at 2 miles, and I've been citing it as fact ever since. I may have based the estimate on road signs that gave the distance, in kilometers, between two points that weren't my actual destinations to begin with.

Or maybe it was more scientific than that, perhaps involving an odometer even. In any case, I am here today to tell you that:



It is 2.98 miles from my house to the girls' school. (You can see the actual route if you click to enlarge.) (Although not clearly enough to be much use to stalkers who frequent obscure blogs by unknown quilters and know their way around Costa Rica.)

I would also like to state for the record: Google Earth is really fun and a great way to start a conversation with the land surveyor in your life.

We love playing with Google earth. Unfortunately, our little town in france is not under high resolution, so you can't see us. We were able to find our old house in Hawaii and a house we rented near Gibralter, in Spain.
BTW: My mom has cousins that retired to Costa Rica, I'll have to ask where...
