In Costa Rica there are large stones that were rounded into large, granite spheres between 400 - 1,000 A.D. There is an example of one at the entrance to the international airport in Liberia. I will stop and take a photo of it some time. Movie fans may remember the large, round stone spheres from the opening scene of the first Indiana Jones movie.
As I mentioned a few days ago, housing development entrances such as this give the impression that the developer has a lot of money and therefore will be able to finish the project. Unfortunately, in today's down economy in the USA, that is not always the case, as I will show in the days ahead.
We are showing photos of the architecture of Budapest, Hungary, one of Europe's magnificent capitol cities, this week on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.
