Recreational Poverty

For those who would claim that illegal immigrants fleeing poverty and natural disasters don't deserve a better life elsewhere, here is a photo I took in a neighborhood of San Jose, Costa Rica's capital. The children and older relatives are relaxing after a game of soccer on the lovely soccer field in front of their palatial hand-crafted homes.

About Me

My photo
I live on the Pacific slopes of the Talamanca mountain range in southern Costa Rica. My adult children live in the United States. I have a Masters Degree in Gerontology but have worked as a migrant laborer, chicken egg collector, radio broadcaster, secretary, social worker, research director, bureaucrat, writer, editor, political organizer, publicist, telephone operator, and more. My hobby of photography has garnered some awards.
