Art of Lola Fernandez
The big, bold figures in the paintings in this photo are typical of her style. She was featured in exhibitions in Costa Rica as well as elsewhere in Latin America, the U.S., Europe and Japan in the 1980's and 1990's. She continued painting into the 21st Century.
Costa Rica's High Ranking on international Social Progress Index. The Tico Times newspaper has an article about Costa Rica ranking number 1 in Latin America and 25 of 132 countries ranked on a Social Progress Index that measures fulfillment of basic human needs, such as medical care, education, nutrition, clean water, personal safety, human rights, tolerance, etc. Its ranking was comparable to Italy and Spain, even though those countries had higher economic output per person. The USA ranked number 16. New Zealand was first. Costa Rica's ranking was due in part to especially high rankings in nutrition, water, sanitation and opportunity.
Today is Sunday, so we have new photos posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site. This week we are showing photos of the Trinity College Library in Dublin, Ireland.
