So far we have been having a great time, ‘Ticos’ or locals are quite friendly and easy going, I can’t help to notice the similitudes with my own country in many different aspects. Last night was uneventful, went to bed a little early feeling tire from all the traveling. Today we had a visit with Edwin, a former UMass student from Costa Rica and had the opportunity to sample the local cuisine. We had a meeting in which Edwin explained some of the business aspects from a local’s point of view. Then we had lunch at a very good Mexican restaurant within a walking distance from hotel were we are staying and later on visited ‘El Museo del Oro’ in downtown San Jose, a well organized and interesting place.
