I Wanna Be A Beach Hippie
Tow years ago when my husband and I went to Costa Rica, I became enamored with a group of “beach hippies” in the west coast town of Manuel Antonio. I don’t know where the hippies came from–they looked vaguely European, but were so tan they could have easily been native Ticos. I don’t member talking o them except to buy some of the jewelry they made, I only remember that they apparently lived in a van by the ocean with a bulldog who wore a beaded necklace. And I thought to myself, I want that life. So, since I’m going to Mexico (ten days!!!) for two and a half months, and since I won’t really have a job while I’m down there, and since I like to make jewelry, I’m going to try my hand at being a beadin’ beach hippie, minus the van and the dog of course. Maybe make a little dinero para cerveza, if you know what I mean.
In preparation, I’ve been making and stockpiling jewelry for the vacation. I’ll have internet while I’m there, so I will post updates about my endeavor. You only live once, right? Might as well reach out and grab it, especially when it’s that close.
I’m not sure how I’ll decide on a spot to sell my merchandise — I’ve never really done anything like this. Have any of you? Tips and advice are welcome….
