So many cute houses (and buildings)!

I simply adore the little houses one sees while riding in Costa Rica! So I am posting photographs of a few.

And these on the way to Quepos remind me of the architecture of Puerto Viejo, Limon, where I lived for 13 years.

And there are not only lots of cute houses, but also a lot of interesting, little old buildings in general. Never a dull moment while riding in Costa Rica!

Yes, there are cute houses and fun buildings all over the country. I especially like the old architecture, but don’t presently have any pictures to share. I am sure you will see lots of unique houses while you ride in Costa Rica. This is also part of the fun of it all.

RIDING IN COSTA RICA: KNOW THE LOVE.

Song: Can’t find my way home.

This is the first house I lived in when I came to Costa Rica in 1985 with the Peace Corps. It was tough. I slept on a wooden bed with no mattress, and the bats flew around in the room at night.

While I lived in this house, a Nicaraguan lady lived next door (from whom I rented). She would feed me a big bowl of black beans with a big tortilla for breakfast. 🙂 An old Jamaican lady would sit on a rocking chair on the porch and sing “If I’d known you were comin’, I’da baked a cake, I’da put up a cake…” Peace Corps year in Costa Rica — poetry and wonder.
