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.
