You’re right. I did a marketing study on Costa Rica. They are also the wealthiest latin american country b/c of the fact that they don’t have a standing army. They are educated. They refer to themselves as “Ticos.” I hear the beaches are absolutely gorgeous. I’d like to go there for bird watching and snorkeling. Can’t wait to see it!December 28, 2002 at 7:37 am #24082
My family move from El Salvador to Costa Rica when I was about 8. We lived there for about 5 years until coming to USA. My younger sister was born there. We used to sing to her, “La senorita Tica!” When I went back years later everything seemed so small!!! hehehe!!!
Hmmm. . . .if you like snorkling you should go to Belize!! They have some incredable reefs! I shall post a photo of Belize soon too!
I am not sure if Costa Rica is the wealthiest nation in Latin America. You may be right. Do you know their saying “Tuanis?”December 28, 2002 at 8:25 am #24099
This is Taxco, Guerrero, Mexico. It is the silver capital of the world! I bought a really neat ring there that I have always worn since then. I was president of the Spanish Club and we organized a trip to go study Spanish there for 1 month. So we were a group of 12 people. Me and my secretary–Isabella (from Colombia), went out drinking every night!! Man was I lush back then! In Taxco we stayed overnight because we had to drink with the locals we told ourselves. So, me Isabella (of course!) and 3 others stayed. It was funny becuase at the “cantina” were we went to drink and dance two of our friends–Irene and Iris got drunk and flirtatious with local men so that they were following us after we left. I, being the president had to protect these women from the motley crowd they had enticed! Gee!! With great power comes great responsibility! So, as we walked stumbling down the curby, desending, cobble-stoned streets of this gorgeous town, I simple yelled “Let’s run!!” and we all ran back to our “pension,” escaping from the drunken Mexicans! I recall the beautiful music of drunken female laughter and shoes stopping on aged stones below a benign star-filled sky!! Could you believe that romantic moments in life can exist even among moments of imminent danger?December 28, 2002 at 8:53 am #24118
this is Seongdang Pond. I think it is pretty. I usually go hiking early in the morning. I walk through here to get to the big hill. I took this picture on one November morning (~7:30-8:00). It’s in South Korea.December 30, 2002 at 2:35 pm #24136
