I always like to take pictures of everyday things when I visit another country...
sorry, most of these shots are through the windows of legendary BUS #4 or a taxi!

Angela,

Thanks for your pictures of life in Costa Rica. I have not been there for a long time. In the mid 80's I was involved with a Miami company that had an office in San Jose and I spent a bit of time there. Although most of the time I was visiting customers I did manage to get out in the country a bit. It is a beautiful place.

Angela,

I look forward to Rio. I haven't been there in a while, but I know the place quite well. I lived there a few years in the 80's and have spent a lot of time there on many occaisions since. There is a big difference to Costa Rica. For one the population of the city of Rio de Janeiro is more than double that of the whole country of Costa Rica, 9 million vs 4 million people. I am sure it will be a good time. I have never seen any city with such a beautiful setting.

Nice meeting you in person in C.R. Angela. You sure take some great photos. I have a few pics to add that I believe would be appropriate for this thread.
While riding the bus to and from the various places we visited I saw many very nice modest Cost Rican homes and front gardens many with beautiful wraught iron fences or gates with long narrow red tile roof covering. When I finally decided to try snap some pics of them it was toward the end of our Biennial time and very difficult to get decent photos from a fast moving bus. Here are two very poor examples but better than nothing I guess - at least it gives you some idea of the "look". The houses in and around San Jose usually had high iron fencing while those out and in the smaller towns and more rural areas did not. Sorry I missed those nice ones but here are two anyway.

One last set of pics from the San Jose City Tour that I took on Friday. I was the only one from our hotel. The guide spoke fluent English and was well versed in CR history and the social framework. This is a public square in downtown San Jose in front of the National Cathedral (Catholic, of course):

downtown_SanJose.jpg

We also visited the Opera House, and I was captivated by some statues standing by the entrance to various venues within the building. They were sculpted in the 19th century by an Italian whose name I don't recall. These two (l. to r.) are Dance and Music:

dance_and_music.jpg

In a large meeting/convocation room was this statue called Fame:

fame.jpg

The young lady was an Indian tourist. She and her husband were a little tense when they realized I had gotten her in this picture, but it was inadvertant. In fact, her bright colors tend to draw attention away from the statue.

Finally, there were these two statues, (l. to r.) Comedy and Tragedy:

comedy_and_tragedy.jpg

That does it for my non-palm pictures.

I'm going to add some pics of when Bus #4 had a blow out and managed to pull over to a "safe" place.... for those who did not see these in the other thread.
Here's the safe place...

Click on the thumbnail and display it at full size/resolution and see if you can tell what was on the Big Screen at the Safe Place. What an incredible talent show. I am so glad someone memorialized this historic event.


SHHHH!!!!! LARRY!!!! You weren't supposed to draw attention to that!! Now I might have to moderate myself!! :angry: But really, it's a documentary on Lodoicea wearing bikinis. :lol:


You should have seen my other pics of what was on the Big Screen... there's no way I can post those!!


Since I was working on the flat so much I didn't see much "big screen"...... My email address is "tvrdude@netz....... :drool:

This is a picture of the statue at the National Cathedral. The enscription read: "LEVANTAOS! VAMOS! NO TANGAISMEIDO, CHRISTO ESTA CON VOSTROS. Perhaps one of you bi-linguals can translate for us.

Get up! Let's go! Have no fear, Christ is with you.
