A row of crosses

I will use the occasion of this additional photo of the cemetery in San Jose to share some religious news from Costa Rica.

At the suggestion of President Laura Chinchilla during her recent meeting with the Pope in the Vatican, the Vatican will soon be displaying a statuette that is a replica of the patron saint of Costa Rica, the Virgin of Los Angeles, also known as La Negrita.

The statuette will be displayed on a marble base in St. Anne's Chapel in the Vatican.  The original statue of the Virgin is kept at the spot where it first appeared and reappeared in Cartago, where a Basilica stands to commemorate the event.

This week we are showing photos of the people of the Sepik River, Papua New Guinea on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

A little piece of Costa Rica all the way across the world.

I would guess that there are very few Jews in Costa Rica. Thus the many crosses.

I like the way the sun is shining on the row of crosses.

These crosses remind me of many military cemeteries around the world.
