Fellow blogger Colin recently made a comment on my post about gay marriage in Costa Rica, and thanks to THAT, I now remember that I wanted to provide a link to his blog and more specifically, his photos about the Bri-Bri Indians who live near him.
Colin lives in Puerto Viejo on the Carribean side of Costa Rica, the side that has thankfully been ignored by tourists. I say that as the Carribean side is delicious! It is almost like a different country. Everything is different and beautiful; oceans, jungles, roads, folliage, the people… the works. Of course once the tourists discover it, it’s all over.
Colin’s blog includes some beautiful photos of the Bri Bri indians of that area, and those of you interested in some fine photography might like to stop by his blog for a visit.
The Bri Bri live in fairly poor conditions, and the area is sadly in lack of simple medical and dental health treatment. ARCR is now sponsoring trips to provide medical support and other assistance.
