Yesterday I showed a billboard of the improbable scene of dark suited executives at the Tamarindo Airport. Here is another billboard in town that is eye catching. The Tamarindo Heights housing development has used striking models to promote its upscale image.
As with the people dressed in dark suits in yesterday's photo of a bilboard, I doubt that there are many women in Tamarindo who are wearing dresses like the one you see in this photo.
I don't know why, but seeing a model like this in Tamarindo reminds me of a story that a long-time resident told me. He said that before the tourist boom in the last 10 years, Tamarindo was a quiet place and rich men from San Jose used to keep their mistresses in Tamarindo for visits. I do not know if that is true or not, although he told me the story while in church, so that may increase the reliability of the story.
Tomorrow, we will show an improbable further development of this little advertising series. In fact, I think I will lead up to a photo in a couple of days that is the opposite of the high-class, image advertising that I have been showing. I will show a sign that is so low-brow that a friend of mine who stayed in our condo last year actually mentioned it to me in an email, so I took a photo of it.
