This first image is of Dad and the fort in Heredia. It was used during the Costa Rica Civil War. It is an interesting structure, and the openings are small in the center of the two foot walls and wide on the outside so they could see a long way, but nobody could shoot them through the small space (although Dad pointed out that it would act more as a funnel...tousche!)
This photo is of the farmer's market. You can see how far the market extends...about 1/4 mile. There were a lot of people there, and this is a very cultural thing for Costa Ricans to come here to buy their produce for the week.
Be checking back all week. I leave for a week-long organized trip to Nicaragua at 5:30 in the morning. While I will not be able to post pictures until I return next weekend, I will try to find a computer to jot down a few things that we do every day. We have a pretty neat schedule outlined, so I am anxious to go on this adventure.
