Pura Vida sometimes means pura mundane, at least among expats whose daily searches for the necessities in a strange land eclipse deep thought.
A couple from Pursical are trying to do something about that by organizing an afternoon of food, thought, conversations and edification, they said.
The gathering is at the finca of Catherine and Roland Klein. They live about 8 kilometers (about five miles) outside of Puriscal Centro.
The plan is to celebrate the birthday of Charles Darwin Saturday. In keeping with the theme, the Kleins said there will be speakers on evolutionary thought, Darwin’s home, a favorite Darwin topic of insect coloration and even discussions about Darwin’s ship “The Beagle.” The couple offers some food and drink but also asks guests to bring a dish to share.
They said the event is a celebration of science, reason and fun.
The couple can be reached at 2416-0893 or 2416-2154 and at firstname.lastname@example.org.
