This gives me an opportunity to share another oddity about Costa Rica not using street addresses, but instead people giving directions based on the direction and distance to a landmark that others will know.
So many people gave directions from the location of the Coca-Cola bottling plant in San Jose that maps of the city
even print the location "Coca-Cola." To make this practice even more odd, the Coca-Cola bottling plant relocated years ago, but everyone still refers to that part of the city, a busy bus transit area, as "Coca-Cola."
This week we are showing photos from our recent trip to the Galapagos Islands on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.
