This came from our part of Costa Rica, the Nicoya peninsula of Guanacaste province, which is the source of most of the early, pre-Columbian pottery in Costa Rica.

My wife and I love the Bowers Museum. It features Asian, Pre-Columbian, and California art. It has amazing special exhibitions.
We have new photos of the wildlife and people of Tanzania our Viva la Voyage travel photo site this week.
