Day 7

August Break 2011- These pictures were taken at a very lovely souvenir shop close to Volcán Poás in Alajuela. Two years ago there was a very strong earthquake that practically destroyed this area. As a way to motivate the community to rebuild their town, this man started painting motivational messages on small wooden signs and placing them on the trees along the road. He now has a store where you can paint your own sign and buy some goodies for the road. Great project, very inspiring!

“Love scenes are permitted”- Funny because in some restaurants here in Costa Rica patrons have a sign saying ‘love scenes are not permitted’.
