Modern gate

This photo shows a modern, imposing gate of a neighboring house to the Moroccan gate that I showed yesterday.  It is quite a contrast.  In fact, it is hard to imagine two more contrasting architectural styles -- the intricate details and patterns of Islamic art or the minimalist, clean lines of today's modern style.

We have decorated the interior of both of our Tamarindo condos in a modern style, which is very different than our Scottsdale home.  It is also different than the tropical or beach decor that is more common in Costa Rica.  We like the contrast. A modern style is also clean and has been well received by guests who rent our condos.

This house is quite dramatic, as I will show during the next few days.

Today is Sunday, so we have new photos of on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.  This week we are showing photos of Peggy's Cove, Nova Scotia.  It is a coastal community very different than Tamarindo.

What a difference! This shot gives us a bit of intrigue with the little peek of the building beyond the gate.

I like the minimalist, clean lines!

Yup. It is quite different from the place next door.

Your comment today was thought-inspiring. Until ten years ago, I think your observation about modern military units would have been right. But, in the last decade, there has been much reliance on calling up National Guard or Army Reserve units, which stay together during their service. So, just as in the Civil War, if one of these units draws heavy casualties, a community back home is devastated.
