JPG Jack & Karen Haggerty (one of Mike’s flying buddies) have a lovely home in Potrero, in NW Costa Rica. Seems like a great way to spend at least part of retirement! Life expectancy is good here, about 79 years – slightly better than in the US. The #1 place for life expectancy? Macau. And we won’t be planning any trips to Angola, which came in #224 on the list.

In Jack & Karen’s yard was a PERFECT banana tree. I’ve seen bananas growing upside down before, but I had never seen the flower pod, hanging at the bottom. It was very heavy, full of soon-to-be bananas.
