A row of crosses
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.
