Costa Rica needs the rain. There has been a lack of rain this year. Rain is critical in Costa Rica for the many family farms and agricultural enterprises.
Rain is also critical for electricity. Costa Rica generates nearly all of its electricity from hydro power. Reliance on this clean, renewable energy source is part of Costa Rica's plan to become the world's first carbon-neutral nation.
This week we have photos of daily life in Ethiopia posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.
