Another Reason to Love Costa Rica

Do we *really* need another reason to love Costa Rica?

Well, why not? We have so many *big* reasons, how 'bout a smallish one :-D

Costa Rica does not change their clocks twice a year to accommodate daylight savings time! Of course, it makes sense not to, as the country lies just 10 degrees North of the equator. Sunrise and sunset pretty much happen at the same time year-round. Why mess with perfection?

I've always detested one thing about spring in the states - losing that hour of sleep when we change the clocks. Now there's a new reason to be wary. A new study reports that heart-attack risks go way up for the three business days following the spring "sleep deprivation." It is more pronounced for women, and for people under 65.

Pura Vida!
