places magnified – San Jose
this time I went to San Jose in Costa Rica. I’ve never seen a city pale like this. I’ve also never seen so many fast food restaurants in my life. they’re giving the town the only colours – it’s grey, boring and a giant tragedy . . .
most people, who visit a place have actually no idea what they’re doing. carrying a tourist guide or following a tourist guy, they see what exactly what the tourist-marketing-management-crooks wants them to see – not more, often less, stealing as much money as possible out of your pocket. yes sure, the baroque old-town is nice, bla, another theme park, fuck that. but if you wanna get into a city/place, the dark sights is what you want and the local people get you there.
and that’s what we did again. we met two wonderful young ladies, they took us home and gave us a place to stay for a while. in return we helped them painting kids faces and played the guitar and, well, just had some fun!
