Tico horse and house

Continuing with a little photo series about a drive in the countryside near Tamarindo, I noticed this beautiful palomino horse waiting in front of a small house. I decided to stop and take a photo.

Costa Ricans, commonly called Ticos, are proud of their tradition of small family farms. People who have jobs in the tourism industry may still live in a rural village and still have some farm animals.

That pride was demonstrated in what happened after I took this photo, but of course you will have to log in tomorrow for the rest of the story.

This week we have posted photos of Norway on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site

It is a beautiful horse and a great picture. Not a palomino though, it's a paint.

I'm not much of a horse fancier. Where I grew up the only horses were under policemen. But I do remember seeing a lot of this on other visits, particularly the time we drove from Monte Verde to Quepos and then back to SJ.

Thanks for your comment today. I think our new federal courthouse in the tallest in the country. It houses the 8th Cir. as well as the USDC E.D. Mo. There aren't that many floors - they were designed with very tall ceilings for the courtrooms.
