Hello and welcome to this Special Edition BCP
As a valued reader you are one of the first to see this edition. So whatâ€™s the big news? Why would we issue this after so much time and in this new format?
Because itâ€™s one of our incredible editor and founders 30th birthday! Abigail Svenson (nee Belton) has done an amazing job for so many years to preserve the true meaning of this periodical and we wanted to celebrate her and her life. You may be more familliar with her pen name: Liagiba. She has fiercly proteced the mission of BCP for more than twenty years; what is the mission you ask? To distribute crazy news - duh.
Happy Birthday Liagiba, hope you have a wonderous day and long live the BCP!

There is a whole lot going on here, Eleira has accepted two part-times jobs (at the time of print she is pretty sure she is going to do them but not 100% sure). One of the jobs is designing the local magazine. She

So what the heck is a typical day like in Costa Rica? 5:30am: Alarm goes off. Eleira turns it off. Retep gets up to make coffee. 6:00am: Eleira finally wakes up and reads all the news on the internet. 6:30am: Eleira and Retep eat breakfast and plan the day. 7:00am: Eleira updates her blog, edits photos, calls her mom. 9:00am: Eleira and Retep finally stop being lazy and go for a long walk. 10:30am: Eleira and Retep return from a long walk, they walked all the way to Playa Buena Vista. It was probably a 3.5 mile walk. Retep gets ready for his Spanish lesson and Eleria makes lunch. YUM! 11:00am: Retep is studying and getting ready for class, Eleira is updating her website/blog/desiging things on her computer. 1:00pm: Retep leaves for his lesson. Eleira either goes for a run or another walk. There are so many pretty beaches! At this point she is usually brainstorming about what they are going to have for dinner. 3:00pm: Retep is home!! Eleira missed him. They put their bathing suits on and go to the beach! 4:30pm: They are back at home, Eleria is trying to remember that great idea she had for dinner. She checks a recipe online and they go to the store to pick up a few things. They go to the store everyday bceause it’s so close to their house and they don’t like having to carry too many things at once. 5:30pm: Eleira is cooking up something delicious. 7:00pm: Dinner is all cleaned up, it’s a million degrees in the house so Eleira takes a shower to cool down. 8:00pm: Eleira and Retep find a movie to watch online and usually fall asleep before 9:00pm. Ahh... lovely.
