It was fun being on buses and boats and dining with the tour group.
Below are shots of happy traveling people with whom I enjoyed sharing the week.  - Joy

Plaza de la Cultura, Avenida Centrale
Last night, in Costa Rica, in city of San Jose.
I bravely toured my new Canadian friends by foot with a map and a compass.
There are no addresses and NO mailboxes outside the city, in the countryside,
so seeing this very large, Correo, Post Office is ridiculous.
Golden Arch, McDonalds, serves gorgeous large chunks of carrot cake and had security guards.
We found our way back intact in the dark narrow alleyways of rush hour San Jose!

That's me, Joy, in the white jacket on lower right side of staircase.
