A Glimpse of San Jose

*This post is a bit overdue, but better late than never I suppose!

Last week the coordinators of my study abroad program took myself and the other students on a short walking tour of San Jose. I didn’t see a whole lot, since this tour was intended to show us how to travel between Heredia and San Jose using public transportation (it’s only about a 30 minute ride, maybe less, by bus or train). Of course, we didn’t leave without seeing a few things in the city’s center.

Honestly, I don’t know what this building is used for. I just thought it looked nice and I like the way the Costa Rican flags are wrapped around the balconies for independence day (Sept. 15)

The Guanacaste tree is the national tree of Costa Rica.

This isn’t the first time I’ve come across a tribute to John Lennon while traveling in a foreign country (click here to see the vlog I made while traveling around Prague).

Although my visit to San Jose was cut short when we realized we were going to be late to class, I’m sure I will return soon. I definitely want to spend more time walking through the parks. There are a lot of beautiful trees and flowers planted throughout the parks and I didn’t have time to stop and take pretty photos (I would have liked to take many)!

I hope you enjoyed the photos! Since my last two posts were quite lengthy and consisted of few photos, I thought I would keep this one light and easy to look at.
