Day 1
Landing in Costa Rica - Christmas Day in San Jose


My brother spent almost 2 years (1993 -1995) in the Peace Corps here in CR.
Instead of spending Christmas Day with our family, we two flew into Costa Rica
and spent the day visiting Jon's
old friends and adopted family,
and the old haunts of former volunteers years gone by...

 
Less than 20 minutes
from the San Jose airport
in El Coyol, Alajuela, we
tread upon the road
that leads to the old
Peace Corps training
center for CR and
Panama.
