Day 2: Architecture

After sleeping in, we decided it would be fun to explore some of the culturally significant neighborhoods to the north of town and some of the museums as well. We checked out what was considered the ‘French Quarter’ as well as the Jade Museum(which was closed) and the Cultural Museum of Costa Rica which had displays on Costa Rica’s currency, and a large area on pre-Columbian Costa Rica. My parents were on a tear shopping for souvenirs for relatives and friends… and San Jose was the place to do it, the down town area is about a 4×4 block square shopping area filled with all kinds of shoe, clothing, and jewelry shops. I found a really nice watch for myself, its very simple and thin, a xmas present from my parents.
