Michelle Obama's hairstylist will retire to Costa Rica

Michael "Rahni" Flowers, Michelle Obama's hairstylist, is building a house in Costa Rica and will move there with his partner when he retires, according to Chicago Tribune's Anne Stein.

Flowers and Daryl, his partner of eight years, will move to Caimital, near Nicoya and live in a house that will be powered by wind and solar energy. They also plan to raise fruits and veggies and have fish.

Flowers loves Costa Rica because the people are very gentle, kind and generous and "it's a very green country with a 97 percent literacy rate and one of the best health-care programs in the world."

He admits that his favorite Costa Rican hotel is the Four Seasons in Papagayo, Guanacaste, because it captures the culture and the environment of the place it's located in, and he considers it to be one of the most beautiful hotels in the world.

Wow. . . he must have gotten a pretty good raise to have a house in Costa Rican and the US. . . He does a great job on Michelle's hair.
Great post.
