After being in the country 6 weeks, we as a family feel like we are starting to settle into place. It is well with our souls! The transition has been huge.Ticos and Ticas live a life that is much slower than North Americans,so it's important that we learn to slow down and enjoy the culture. Going to the neighborhood market is always a fasinating expirence for us,you can always get fresh breads, fruits and veggies and more importantly Coffee.Marge and I always get fresh squeezed O.J. when we finish shopping. On an academic note we started orientation at the Spanish language institute, I(mark) learned I know absolutly nothing about spanish....please pray for us..God is going to do a big work.
because of earthquakes.Then I found this webpage so i copyed this....
The fate of the church in the Cartago parish has not been much better. Construction began in 1574, but between then and 1910 the building had to be rebuilt five times because of earthquake damage. Following the massive destruction caused by the Cartago quake of 1910, the church was abandoned and the ruins now form the centerpiece of a park in the middle of town.
