Soccer/football at the airport

Tamarindo has a small airport about 2 minutes outside of town. This is the terminal. Tamarindo is served by commuter airlines from San Jose, a 4 1/2 drive or 45 minute flight away. Most people fly into the area at the international airport in Liberia, one hour away by car.

In between flights into or out of Tamarindo, things are pretty slow at the airport. The guys who handle tickets and luggage, and serve as the ground crew for the flights, have time to play a little football, or soccer as it is called in the USA.

As you can see by this soccer ball next to the terminal, they have had time to play a lot of soccer. They need a new ball, don't you think?

This week we are showing photos of one of our favorite cities, and certainly the most unique city on earth, Venice, on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site. It is a photographer's delight.

Perhaps they like the feel of this old one. With a new ball they might have difficulty leaving the game when duty called.

Interesting how you focused the soccer ball in the foreground, and it does indeed look well-worn. Thanks for you thoughtful comments on my blog today; you mentioned exactly what I was trying to show in my photo.

Yes, they could use a new ball, but something tells me they are perfectly happy with this one.

A bit of interesting trivia...and yes, that poor soccer ball has seen better days...maybe some fliers could come up with a donation to purchase a new ball?
