Costa Rican wood bowl (2)

This is a photo of a typical Costa Rican wood bowl in a Tamarindo souvenir shop. Bowls and other household items made from tropical hardwoods are popular souvenirs from Costa Rica. The wood grains are rich, and the wood often has both light and dark areas, as is shown in the bowl in this photo.

Fortunately, Costa Rica plants 7 million new trees per year as part of its reforestation programs and to meet its goal of being the world's first carbon neutral nation by 2021.

This week we are showing photos of Copenhagen featuring Danish design on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

The richness of the wood shows very well! I'm glad that trees are being replaced since I worry about any environmental damage created by the cutting of trees for these products.
