Presidente Obama en Costa Rica

Today Barry O will be in San José, the capital of Costa Rica. Check out this 'Welcome!' video that Ticos made for Mr. Obama.

They are such lively and gracious people.

At the 1:19 mark, students from the Colegio de Señoritas make a cameo. Those spiffy uniforms have been a staple of the all-girls school for many, many decades.

On an immigration note, there have never been waves of Costa Ricans (as this Wikipedia article correctly notes) coming to the US of A, due to the tiny nation's economic and political stability and its high literacy rate. In fact, Costa Rica is a retirement haven of sorts for Americans who appreciate the beaches, climate, low cost of living, Arenal volcano (pictured below), rainforests and great café.
