QBLOGS – If you click on the “blogs” button on the Q Costa Rica Home Page and then my name, Rick Philps, you will see from my blog archive, that I have been a blog contributor to Q for over three years.

During that time, I have expressed my opinions and offered both political, social, and legal advice, on a wide range of topics touching on life in Costa Rica.

Having lived in Costa Rica for over eighteen years and practiced law for fourteen of them, I have interacted with Costa Rican Society on a deeper level than most foreigners who merely live here on offshore investment, or pension income.

Costa Rica, if you are just here with Residency status spending money to live, presents a very laid-back and easy lifestyle, presenting few day-to-day challenges. To be Naturalized as a Citizen and involved in business and politics, presents an entirely different lifestyle picture.

Over the up-coming Holiday Season, I invite all Q’s readers to take a few minutes and read, or re-read a few of my archived blogs and consider how they reflect in your own mind, the relevant considerations of life in Costa Rica.

All of the blogs that I have written are factually correct and are written with the utmost of good faith. My view in writing the blogs is to put into words, what many of us feel from time-to-time is something that should be addressed, but which possibly many can’t quite find the right words to express it.

It is my sincere hope that at least some of my blogs have provided the vehicle to accomplish that public expression aspect.

Enjoy the Holiday Season!
