On this blogger site one can click on all pictures except for the header two times each time making them larger which is a feature I like because it gives you the ability to really look very close at features not readily seen.

Mi Casa

I made it to Costa Rica and the town of Atenas easily. Took some pictures of where I'm staying. Went and picked up some groceries in town and tomorrow will walk in and look around a bit more. It's laid back and my hosts are very pleasant.

 This flower is huge.

The house I'm staying in.



This is a small neighborhood equivalent of a 7-11 without the gas.

    1. Nor I. A interesting thought as is good old plain companionship but this cornfield will not be the one.

      Green mixes well with other colors so well doesn't it.

  6. Absolutely beautiful! I hope you keep posting pix of your stay in CR, because it's a trip I'm dying to make again in my lifetime.

    Any local sites you take in, carry a camera along for the rest of us!

    1. There's more coming for sure. camera is always with me. yesterday came away with not much and didn't post but this morning think I got a couple and am walking towards town later. Soon there will be an illustrative video as I think will give the picture a bit more meaning.

      In the town square and most places for that matter it's all about the family. Many things are not cheap. People make $2 an hour but in the stores people are spending.

      I like Atenas. I'm feeling strange again and keeping pretty close.

  9. Yo Kevin, make sure you read the post about your Wyoming brother and sisters. Not before you go to bed though.
