Two feet from the bed. Our first scorpion in Nicaragua. I remember thinking we didn't see any in Costa Rica this weekend. Did the big storm bring this in tonight? The drops sounded very large. Maybe it is the plagues? Huge ants, now scorpions. The storm also knocked out my external hard drive and a USB port on Jaimey's computer (earlier in the day when we were in the city). Where is the nearest Apple Store? Glad the computers weren't fried. The fluctuating electricity did it, even with a surge protector. #plagues #scorpion #arachnidsofinstagram #mercuryretrograde #expatlife #expatliving #nicaragua

Slide to see all pics. Animals are not kept in captivity (zoos) for entertainment in Costa Rica. These animals are either being rehabilitated for release, or have experienced a trauma that disabled them.

" I know that the small acts we take toward the healing of the world are the only steps we can take, and that the way change happens in this country is from the grassroots, a rhizomatic, perpetual motion, like the beautiful, pernicious bindweed in the garden." ~ Rachel Kaplan, Author of Urban Homesteading.

The gibbons (howler monkeys 🐒 🐵) were pretty close today. The alpha was at the center top of the green tree canopy doing his growl lookout thang. Lower down there are several others. When they turned this direction in the sun, their bright faces say Hello! I enjoy hearing them sing at night and whoop during the day. #howlermonkeys #gibbon #siamang #siamanggibbon #slowlife #resilience #permaculture #nicaragua #throughbinoculars

"To think like a watershed, we've got to move from the Drain-Age, designs that desiccate, dehydrate, and degrade – into the Retain-Age, a restorative, reverential relationship to rehydration." ~ Brock Dolman on Basins of Relations Get our Permaculture video series (Pay What You Wish) 18+ hours with leaders of the regenerative movement.
