Sunset from Langosta condo
I like the "Green Season" at this time of year, as the clouds add shape, texture and capture the color of the sunset. The high season of sunny, cloudless skies during November through April is ideal for tourists who want to escape the cold weather up north.
News: Here is a little news item from the Costa Rican newspaper. The first Costa Rican to climb Mount Everest has just reached the summit. Congratulations to Warner Rojas. The newspaper has been reporting on the progress of his expedition by monitoring his Facebook page. They have reached the summit and returned safely to one of the camps below. Julie and I where in the Himalayas several months ago, although not for mountain climbing. But this is a tremendous achievement and a source of price for a country like Costa Rica, which has mountains, but none of them covered with snow and ice like Everest.
This week we have photos of the elegant villas and gardens of the Borromean Islands in Lake Maggiore, Italy, posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.
