    On My Way to Somewhere Else Can't remember what , but looking something up on line earlier today I came cross this article : Costa Rica Street addresses I have been to Costa Rica many times now, having relatives there who are long time residents. My first trip was around 1999, to the Capital, San Jose, a city of population 335,000, in 2016. Remarkably there was not a single street sign or house or business address in the entire city (that I know of.) As can be imagined, this creates a "Twilight Zone" experience for first time visitors.

    Marine Corps Gen. John Kelly, commander of the U.S. Southern Command, predicted last week that the Ebola virus will not be contained in West Africa, and if infected people flee those countries and spread the disease to Central and South America, it could cause “mass migration into the United States” of those seeking treatment. “If it breaks out, it’s literally, ‘Katie bar the door,’ and there will be mass migration into the United States,” Kelly said in remarks to the National Defense University on Tuesday. “They will run away from Ebola, or if they suspect they are infected, they will...

    About a week after the Rindone family returned from their tropical summer vacation, 7-year-old Andrew started complaining about a bump on his head. "It did hurt a little," Andrew said. "And, it did itch." The boy's pediatrician thought he had an infection and prescribed antibiotics. But the bump just kept getting bigger, and a small pinhole began to appear. Then one day, Andrew was on the couch when his mother saw something that horrified her. "We kind of noticed something peek out of the hole," Jennifer Rindone said. The small opening was apparently a breathing hole for the larvae growing...

    After escaping from authorities on two separate occasions, U.S. fugitive John Wesley Saatio won’t have a third chance to run free in Costa Rica. Costa Rican Security Minister Gustavo Mata announced that Saatio will be extradited Saturday when authorities will put him on a commercial flight out of Juan Santamaría International Airport accompanied by U.S. Marshals. Saatio was recaptured Tuesday in Desamparados, south of San José, after escaping through a ventilation duct in the immigration detention center in Hatillo where he had been held since June 3. The 35-year-old fugitive from Michigan was initially aprehended by police in the popular...

    Over the last few months, the tourism industry of Costa Rica has enjoyed an increase of British and European visitors thanks to the inauguration of two flights from London, but officials fear that this joy will be diminished by Brexit. The people of the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union, which means that European tourists can no longer easily travel to London to catch a flight to Costa Rica. At a press conference following the Brexit referendum, the president of Costa Rica’s National Chamber of Tourism (Spanish acronym: CANATUR) mentioned that the new situation is dispiriting since our...

    A 45-year-old U.S. man who has been living in Costa Rica since 2009 has filed for asylum in the country because he says he fears for his life should he be sent back to the United States. Bill Perry’s case, which is currently under appeal through the Immigration Administration Court, began when he was detained at his apartment in downtown San José on April 6 and put into an immigration detention center in Hatillo, where he remains. According to the initial, April 29 resolution from Immigration denying a refugee visa for Perry, the man’s request was based on his assertion...

    See UNBELIEVABLE VIDEO below of Cubans and Africans in an uprising, because Costa Rica won’t let them through to come to the US. Panama and Costa Rican Officials have a MESS on their hands with illegal aliens from everywhere trying to get across their borders, all headed for the USA. A recent report from the Center For Immigration Studies states “the Costa Rican authorities have reported the presence of people of 14 different nationalities at that border.” The whole world has heard that America’s borders are open, and they are coming. In addition to the thousands of Cubans (who the...

    New York Times ^ | March 4, 2016 | Frances Robles
    The United States government has been paying to feed and shelter thousands of Cubans trying to migrate to the United States, in what critics consider another sign of the lopsided treatment provided to Cubans under American law. The Obama administration has tried hard to deter the crush of migrants arriving from Central America in recent years. It has pressed Mexico to crack down on migrants passing through its territory, while women and children who managed to cross the American border have been held in detention facilities. But American law gives Cubans special status to live in the United States and...

    More than 100 Cuban migrants from among the 1,300 stranded in Panama on Sunday received immigration permits that early next week will allow them to travel legally to Mexico, where they will be able to continue their land journey to the United States. This is the first group to resume their trek from Panama to the United States after Costa Rica closed its border in December saying it was unable to continue housing the more than 7,000 Cubans who were also trying to make it to the United States but who had been stranded there after being denied passage through...

    Nicaragua shut down its border with Costa Rica on Sunday to keep more than 1,000 Cubans from entering the country. The move by Nicaraguan authorities is a direct rebuke to their Costa Rican counterparts' decision, one day earlier, to grant transit visas to the migrants - a decision that the administration of Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega said will set off a humanitarian crisis. The border crisis comes amid increasing tensions over the rising number of Cubans crossing Central America on their way to the United States in order to circumvent the heavily patrolled Florida Straits and to take advantage of...

    A.M.Costa Rica: If the unlikely combo of President Barack Obama and Pope Francis did good for the Cuban people by re-establishing diplomatic relations with Cuba, then why are Cubans fleeing their island nation by the thousands? In re-establishing diplomatic relations with Cuba, Obama and the pontiff didn’t help the oppressed people of Cuba under Communist rule, but only enabled the human rights ignoring Castro brothers. Here are the results of the Obama Cuban legacy:

    Footage captured a Spanish aircraft flying nail-bitingly close to cars as it came into land at Costa Rica’s Juan Santamaría airport on Sunday. The video, taken by Carlos Rojas and uploaded onto Youtube, shows Iberia flight 6313 from Madrid coming into land at the Central American country's airport. But as the Airbus A 340 approaches landing it appears to come dangerously close to cars parked at the end of the runway and misses the airport perimeter fence by just a few meters. The landing provoked a flurry of comments on social media from local residents about the “narrowly averted disaster”...

    When a college student disappeared in Costa Rica last summer, his father — legendary Alaskan adventurer Roman Dial — went searching in Central America's deadliest wilderness. He's still looking. Early last April, a 27-year-old biology student named Cody Roman Dial set out into the remote jungle of northern Guatemala. Equipped with a crude map and a compass, he planned to traverse the Petén, a lowland rain forest teeming with snakes, illegal gold miners, and cocaine traffickers. His biggest concern, though, was dehydration — save for jeep-track mud puddles, the area lacks ready sources of freshwater. Cody had spent the previous...

    Retired attorney Kurt Richard Haskell conjectured on the Paris attacks on Sunday during an interview from Costa Rica with 1776 Channel, which can neither confirm nor readily dismiss his theories. “The Muslims being used in these plots are being trained overseas by undercover CIA pretending to be Al Qaeda/ ISIS. I think all of them were trained that way. They think they are in terrorist training camps when they are instead being trained to be patsies.” -Kurt Haskell during interview with 1776 Channel Haskell ran for U.S. Congress in 2012 as a Democrat in Michigan’s 7th District where he received...

    Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega has banned two American lawmakers from his country after they helped push through legislation last week to ban Venezuelan officials from the United States. “Just like they [U.S. officials] have their lists, we can make our own lists in Latin America of those who shouldn’t enter our country,” Ortega told Costa Rica’s Tico Times. Sen. Marco Rubio and Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen laughed off Ortega’s ban, The Miami Herald reported. …

    US President Bush has, once again, suspended the relocation of the American embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Israel's capital, Jerusalem. Bush did this by asserting that US national security will be harmed if he implements the US law requiring the move. Bush’s refusal to take concrete measures recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital has caused some to question the US President’s reputation as a ‘friend of Israel’. Congress overwhelmingly approved the Jerusalem Embassy Relocation Act in 1995, mandating that the US Embassy be moved from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem by May 1999 and that the US recognize Jerusalem as...
