Catching a wave

I showed some beginning surfers at sunset recently in the small waves of the sheltered southern end of Tamarindo Bay, so today and the next couple of days I will show a very good surfer on Langosta beach.

A comment about the news:  It seems that the scandal fever that has taken over Washington recently is also occurring in Costa Rica.  The President has accepted the resignation of several members of her cabinet and some of her top aides.

It turns out that a private plane that the President has used for recent trips to Peru and Venezuela is owned by someone who is under investigation for being linked to people who are possibly involved in drug trafficking.  The aides and cabinet ministers involved did not vet the persons involved in the ownership of the airplane.

This week we are showing photos of the delightful Majorelle Gardens of Marrakech, Morocco, which were owned for many years by Yves Saint-Laurent, on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

I don't think any nation or any system of government is immune from the people who want to be close to power and will pay for the privilege.But in the US, our current scandals -- AP, IRS and Benghazi -- the common thread is an executive branch too full of itself and its correctness to the point that little obstacles like truth and due process are inconvenient.
