Photo essay of my day in San Jose, Costa Rica, exploring downtown!

This afternoon I set out from Green House Hostel and walked many blocks. My goal was to reach the Mercado Central (Central Market). But as it so often happens, getting there was more fun than reaching the destination. I was disappointed the market was inside so only stayed a little while.

One of several cut-out carvings up the street from my youth hostel. 

 I enjoyed people-watching, admired the sculpture and plazas and especially liked seeing the lovely Teatro Nacional. Another highlight was returning to the hostel and playing with adorable 4-year-old Loana. We used my Apple laptop's Photobooth to take our picture, the final photo.
