We now have our C.R. driver's license and debit cards!  The license took about four hours.  It would have taken several days if not for the help of the Association of Residents of Costa Rica (ARCR).  

Bernardito walked us through a maze of paperwork, to a clinic where our blood was drawn to get our blood type, a physical, an eye exam, more paperwork, and finally the photo place.  Jim took care of getting the Debit cards.

We are working toward becoming residents.  The health care costs for residents are phenomenally low here.  Docs aren't revered as gods in C.R. like they are in the U.S.  The pharmacist can refill almost all of our Rx's with little hassle, usually with just the bottle label.
