Crossing the bridge

As you could probably predict from the photos of the last few days, the woman riding her bicycle crossed the bridge. There is a boy approaching the bridge from the other direction.

There is not high drama here, but just a simple scene of village life. Costa Rica is not a wealthy country. It ranks almost 100 on the list of nations for per capita income, however its people are about 4 times more prosperous than nearby Nicaragua.
Costa Ricans, even those in rural areas, are educated, with literacy rates and health care ranking equal to the USA. I was talking to a Tico who lives in a very simple house in a village without paved streets, and I asked him if he used the internet, and he answered "Of course."

This week we are showing photos of the architecture of London on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

I was wondering if she would walk the bike or ride it across. I'm happy to see she walked it. That is what I would have done.

I think the people might be happier with their lives than people are here. I wondered about the health care there also.

I love walking on these bridges. They usually have a spring to them.
