Maybe this is a metaphor for the political problems that are swirling around the President of Costa Rica. She is trying to pull up and out of the controversy by getting rid of some of her top aides and cabinet ministers.
The scandal I talked about yesterday involves intermediaries for the owners of the airplane used by the President for two foreign trips that included a famous Costa Rican football (soccer) star and a person who was introduced to the government officials using a phony name. The airplane was tied to corporate interests in Columbia.
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.
