Book Review

At the center of Brain on Fire is Susannah Catalan, a successful, but young reporter for the New York Post whose normal daily functioning is quickly overtaken by some unknown ailment which causes her to deteriorate into a state of psychosis.  Next Stop is one mother's story of her son David who is born with Autism, but of course, it takes years of doctors' visits, special schools and repeated testing in order to arrive at this diagnosis.  In both stories the parental support is vital to the eventual diagnoses and treatments.

Costa Rica Relocation Guide - Guanacaste 

Depending on the length of time you plan to stay in paradise, you may decide to bring only essential items with you on the plane. If you are considering bringing things such as your own surfboards, refer to your airline baggage policy to see what charges are to be expected.
