And so the rape begins...

When we moved into this house in November of last year, we had a beautiful, unobstructed view of the central valley. Of course, I just knew that wouldn't last long.

To the right, you can see someone is starting to build a new housing development:

To the left, they've been bulldozing trees and other greenery to clear a flat area. We're not sure if they're going to build on it yet or if they're just clearing it for planting. This was the view a couple of days ago. You can see the plateau through the trees.

This was the scene this morning, when I awoke to the smell of burning.

Welcome to Costa Rica, where everything is available to the highest bidder.
