  • San Jose Costa Rica
    an eclectic colorful collection of Costa Rican culture We were somewhat surprised although I am not sure why to see Staples Wal Mart Applebee s Hooters Burger King and McDonalds Movistar is a cell phone provider The US dollar was readily accepted everywhere About one third of the country s 4 1 million Ticos live in the capital And it seemed they all had somewhere to go This is how I will always remember San Jose Another of my favourite shots The building is Edificio Metalica Metal Building The city sets its own hectic pace a busy bustling noisy mix of dusty shops cantinas and traffic It was not long however before we had an official bird sighting We found faces throughout the city and indeed all over the country apparently warding off evil spirits They must work We never felt any sense of evil our entire time in country The Museo Nacional was a former military barracks Meet Juan Rafael Mora Porras President from 1849 to 1859 100 years before I was born 1949 Costa Rica disbanded their army They have no official State army The Museo Nacional De Costa Rica There are over three hundred of these Las Bolas stones in the country No one really knows what they are where they came from or why they were carved sometime between 200 BC and 1500AD Graffiti is an art form in the city This wall was sanctioned by the city and created by a bunch of Tico artists Costa Rica s biggest export is not coffee or bananas Her biggest export is integrated circuit boards call centers and pineapples think Del Monte Eco tourism has become a large part of the economy as the locals learn that to preserve their treasure is worth far more than plundering it
