Flowers and butterfly

Here is one more photo of the type of flowers I have been showing this past week. These flowers around our condo are popular with butterflies.

Following up from yesterday, when Costa Rican President Laura Chincilla was in Washington D.C. last week, she also gave a keynote speech at the Brookings Institution, participated in a forum at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and an event at the American Enterprise Institute, met with U.S. Secretary of Energy Stephen Chu, and obtained a $132 million loan from the Inter-American Deveopment Bank to be used to improve public security in Costa Rica.

The busy schedule reflects her priorities -- economic development and public safety. Tomorrow I will tell you what she did when she stopped off in California before visiting Washington.

If this week you have not yet checked out our photos of the Villa Balbianello in Lake Como, Italy, please check out our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

Is public safety and issue in Costa Rica? Could you elaborate?

Both of these objects that thrive in nature (if we are careful environmentalists!) are beautiful together.

The butterfly and flower are wonderful. We planted the area behind our Florida house with native plants that lure butterflies. It is great seeing so many.

What a great photo! These big, bright flowers are exactly what butterflies like. I bet hummingbirds like them too. Have you ever seen hummingbirds in Costa Rica? I don't recall seeing any when I was there but, I didn't specifically look for them.
