A Bridge to Somewhere
After visiting Costa Rica last year (mi Madre is a permanent resident now), I decided I was a fan finally but it didn't come to me at first. Perhaps living in Southern Ca., the scenery wasn't all that glamorous in the city of Escazu, right outside San Jose. I've got plenty of palms all around me already! However, it was when I went into the forests, down in Manuel Antonio, on the South Coast, that I fell in love.
This rustic bridge was one of the reasons why. It's a handmade bridge made for the locals, who live in the rain forests, to transport their goods to the local markets. A step back in time yet so enrapturing and beautiful!
