Much of the road we took to Guanacaste is old enough so that trees have grown alongside. They give wonderful shade, and make traveling on the highway cooler and more pleasant.
Whenever I travel in Costa Rica, or anywhere, for that matter, it’s not just the landscapes that catch my eye. There are houses along these roads. Each one is a home, a home for a person, or a home for a family.
Some are old and small.
Some are newer, and small.
Some have grown over the years, with porches and plantings.
Costa Rican houses often add roofed areas…during the rainy season, such sheltered spaces are helpful for dry storage, places to work, and to try to dry laundry.
We pass through a town where pedestrians crowd the sidewalks…
At this next house it’s laundry day.
Some people build up.
Fully fenced and barred, this house is available for sale.
Traveling at speed, you have but a fraction of a second to take a photo of a house.
Sometimes you get a glimpse of who lives there.
Who is she talking to?
What a fine entry.
And what a fine tree to have growing at its side.
