Meeting New People

When traveling on vacation, my wife and I meet interesting people by inviting respectable looking strangers to join us at our table at meal time. The three men in the picture above were sight seeing in Costa Rica. Two of them were electrical engineers from Spain on assignment in CR to help start-up power generation equipment and to train operators. The third gentleman was from Honduras and was there as an economic consultant.

The picture below shows four women we met. Two were a mother and daughter from Lima, Peru. They worked as economists for banks in their country and were on vacation in San Jose, CR. As for the other two ladies, one was a clothing designer and dancer from New York City. Her friend worked for a chemical company and lived in New Jersey. They flew to Costa Rica for a long weekend getaway trip.

The ladies from New York and New Jersey paid for a round of drinks when they learned my wife and I were there to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary.

The pictures were made by the waiter or waitress.

Return here for an update on Friday, November 10.

Have a good day!
