There is a large, modern airport terminal under construction next to the current terminal. By the end of this year, people will be waiting indoors, with air conditioning. And passengers will walk through jetways from the plane to the terminal, rather than walking down a portable staircase to the tarmac as they do today.
I took some photos of the new terminal from the window of the airplane during my last flight out of Costa Rica. I will post them in the future. The photos are still in the camera. I have not downloaded them to my computer because Julie bought a new Macbook, which means that after she transfers all of her photos to the new computer, I will get her "hand-me-down" computer to replace the MacBookAir that I now use, which was also a "hand-me-down" from Julie. That is also how I got my last two cameras. You can tell the pecking order in our household.
Today is Sunday, so we have new photos on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site. This week we are posting photos of the Atacama Desert in Northern Chile. It is unlike any place that we have been. Unique. Colorful. Desolate, yet with pockets of plant and animal life.
