Another from the inside of the coffee tour van, looking out at city life in Monteverde on the only stretch of road that is actually paved!
Love the 'spy quality' of this shot. Makes it very interesting!

@MrsAmber: Thank you! I toyed with cutting out the silhouettes and decided I liked the photo better with them showing. :)
I'm noticing all the wires running helter-skelter. Motorbikes/motorcycles, Jeeps and vans plus electricity makes the city of Monteverde hum, I gather. .... Good shot!

@Judy: You get a really good sense of real life, don't you? I hadn't noticed all the wires, but it's a really interesting place. I think what I loved about Costa Rica was the fact that it had such a "real" sensation, from the moment we got of the plane and were herded into the huge lines through imigration then saw taxi drivers holding up signs with names on them at the base of the escalator and against the glass outer wall of the airport luggage claim. It's a place full of character. :)
I love how you do this, it's very sneaky and yet absolutely charming, bravo...Booky

@Lorraine: Hahaha. I like your word choice "sneaky". It does seem a little sneaky, doesn't it? LOL Thanks, Rainy!
great work a real look. I hadn't noticed all the wires either until I read Judy's comment

@jamesy: I guess I'm used to wires. This one kind of shows the social aspect of life in a place where people walk around, too, doesn't it? Most of the vehicles are rented by tourists or taxis to drive the tourists around.
Feels like we are really peeking in on an unknown world!! Great work!

@peter: You know, I never think to go downtown to take street scenes, here.
Reminds me of my couple of trips to Argentina and the villages in the far reaches of the country... though this one seems "upscale."

@Earnest: Costa Rica is pretty civilized. :)
