Thursdays windows in Costa Rica

I’m sitting at Costa Rica International airport, waiting for my flight back to Miami, so thought I’d post a few windows for Dawn’s “Lingering Windows” challenge.

These were all taken in the town of Tortoguera, in Limon province. (Click on any image to enlarge.)





These young boys didn’t need expensive toys. They looked quite content playing amongst the rubble here.







I hope you enjoyed seeing some of what I saw there. My flight is now being called, so I have to go. My holiday trip is almost over. See you all on the other side.

  1. Same rural scenes you find in the Philippines. I love your inclusion of contentment. Because they do. They strive but they are not very ambitious. Rather that than those who have but still ask for more.

  2. Glad to see you’re home safe Sylvia and glad you enjoyed. Thanks for sharing your wonderful photo’s and travels with us. πŸ˜€ *hugs*

  3. I am having a difficult time receiving your new posts on my reader and my e mails. Should I be signing up as a follower again. WP does little tricks from time to time … keeping us on our toes???? hahaha
    Nice photo, Sylvia. Quite a bit of poverty there … their housing looks extremely primitive.
    Glad you made it to Florida even if it was a bit hectic. RU on the west coast of Fla?
    Just wondering. Happy GRAND weekend…!!!

  4. Good to hear you got through the passport business Sylvia . Some officious people like that tend make the most of a situation sometimes .
    Anyway you are HOME now πŸ™‚ and isn’t it a good place to be !

    • Yes, we did, Paula. It was such a relief when we were told we could now go. These officials seem to have no concept of time, or of how much they are inconveniencing people. He even told us that we had broken no rules, but didn’t apologise at all for wasting our precious time.
      I didn’t buy very much, as we had not much space in our luggage.; just a pretty lizard pendant, a sweet little decorated wooden box, and a frame containing four colourful butterflies. πŸ™‚

    • No, the pictures weren’t taken from the airport. πŸ™‚ They were taken in Tortoguero, one of the first areas we visited a few days earlier. πŸ™‚ Costa Rica International airport is quite big, and the security is very strict.
