I know, I know… Every traveler has a million travel sunset photos, each one prettier than the last. But if you’ve read my recent post on my current bout of workaholism, you’ll understand why I needed this shot from Costa Rica today. When I lived there, struggling to start a new life for myself, kickstarting a little company from my one-bedroom house, I was so jealous of my friends who hadn’t lost their jobs in the recession and dove into debt like I did. I gradually pulled myself out by living cheaply in Central America and toiling away with a friend of mine on our little news agency — and then I went back to work, as editor-in-chief of Vegas magazine. This post-recession world is different, isn’t it? Either you’re unemployed — or you’re doing the work of 18 people. I was in the former category for almost two years, the first one hell, the second one bliss, and now I am in the latter.
One day at a time… It’s a jungle out there, and you never know what’s coming up next!
A dear friend of mine started an awesome Sunset Sunday map, so every sunset addict can get a proper fix. I dare you to go check it out — I’m warning you, you might get stuck there for awhile!
