Sometimes, you can go years knowing people electronically, and never meet them in person. Well, this morning, I met an e-friend in downtown San José - in person! She was on her way through town, so we met at one bus station, and ended at another. In between, we meandered around downtown, and ended up seeing a number of parks - and closed museums :-(. Holidays are usually fun in Costa Rica, but a drawback is that a lot of places are closed (and buses often run on a Sunday schedule). Today, Guanacaste Day, was a holiday. And a Monday. And San José was *quiet!*
I was amazed at how much I had forgotten! What was the history of the metal school? Who is that and what represents which country on the national monument? sigh. Fortunately, detailed information is available with a click of the mouse.
I've been having fun with Google maps lately, so you can see where we walked :-)
