Tico house

This photo shows another typical Tico house.  This is a little larger than usual, and there is a window air conditioner.  There is a chicken in the front yard, which is also not unusual.  Costa Ricans like to preserve their agricultural traditions, even if people are earning their living primarily in the tourism industry.

Tomorrow I will show an example of one of the benefits of the tourism industry for local residents.

This week we are showing photos of some of the temples in Siem Reap, Cambodia, including Angkor Wat, on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

I imagine that it is good to have an air conditioner for days when the weather is uncomfortably warm. This house is a bit more spacious than the one you featured yesterday. I like both of them!

I like this house and the scene is one that could be found in many places in Florida. Can't imagine living there or in Florida without A/C!
