Traffic was backed up on Avenida 10 in downtown San Jose because there was a man pulling a cart loaded with ears of corn and celery. Cars had to wait behind him before darting into the other lane in order to proceed at more than 1 mile an hour. This kind of thing happens all the time, and I kind of like it. It’s like the government saying, Hey, these guys need to work too. It also makes for a great excuse. Today I was late because I was behind a truck overloaded with sticks, creeping down the mountain, and then the vegetable man. I say this and everyone just nods and says, Driving in Costa Rica sure is an adventure, isn’t it?
