Quite muscle sore after the hike down Chirripó, so yesterday afternoon seemed a good time to explore an area west of S.Isidro. I left the Barrio Boston area of town and headed N x NW towards Villa Nueva. I love the small town / country soccer fields: Lots of signs reminding one of the eco this and that, keeping the environment clean. My translations: "The trash you throw away shows what you're made of" Or "...what you're about" Back in 1988, I was on a bus in S.José and there was a sign inside the bus that said "mantenga el aseo, hay ventanas" = "keep the bus clean, there are windows"....:huh Easter is coming soon, so it seems appropriate to include a few photos, small town style: In Mexico, stone is the material of choice for the iglesias / catedrales. In CR, cement block and wood...real wood paneling looks good, but for some homes in really makes in look dark inside. El Cristo A few more shots of the countryside before heading back to S.Isidro. The green sometimes is simply ridiculous.
