Village bridge

Across the street from the house I showed in yesterday's photo is a river and this bridge. There are more houses across the bridge.

Unlike the USA, where it seems everybody in rural and suburban areas drives everywhere, in Costa Rica it is common to see people riding bicycles and walking as they travel around their towns, villages and the countryside. This bridge was obviously built for people, not cars.

This week we are showing photos from Tanzania, featuring great wildlife shots that my wife took on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

going on foot is always my preferred method of locomotion.

Great shot. Makes you want to just take off for long walk and explore.

Good to read that people walk. I was always astounded how little people walk in America but drive to everywhere. This is an idyllic scene.

Thanks for your comment on Menton. It's a great read.
