Tico House

Near the cows that I stopped to photograph, which I showed yesterday and the day before, was this typical rural Costa Rican house.  I like the way they made a little gate for the entrance to the house.  They even put a tile roof on the gate, even though most Tico houses have tin roofs rather than tile roofs.

We have photos from Julie's recent raft trip through the Grand Canyon posted this week on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.  I have hiked to the bottom of the Grand Canyon (and back up), but have never rafted through it, which is a far superior experience.

I finally looked up "tico" and it means a native or inhabitant of Costa Rica; should be obvious but inquiring minds need to know! This house looks a bit smaller than some of the tico homes you posted before or perhaps my memory fails me. Pride in home is reflected in the tile roof.

I always love the Tico houses. Costa Rica is such a special place

Love the dog!

Interesting roof. Looks as if it was added later. The puppy isn't interested in the photographer.

The dog just sets this apart! Great picture - it gives me a real feel for Costa Rico.

That is a cute little homestead.

That is an awfully small house to support such a big tile roof. I hope the walls are strong enough . . .

Nice that they made their home so welcoming.
