This is one of the giant stone balls the pre-Columbian cultures carved and that can be found at various locations around Costa Rica, which I have shown and written about in the past. You may remember the opening scene from the first Raiders of the Lost Arc movie, in which Indiana Jones runs from a giant stone ball in the jungle.
Some places in Costa Rica preserve and display these stone balls as decorative items. There is one at the entrance drive to the airport in Liberia. The one in this photo is at the beachfront restaurant at the Tamarindo Diria Resort, which is a popular place to gather at sunset.
This week we have photos of Africa posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.
