Aceras

“Aceras” is the Spanish word for sidewalks.  Every day Jody and I walk about a kilometer to school.  It is a pleasant walk, but we have to be careful because the sidewalks have a variety of surfaces and some are in disrepair (we also have to be very careful of traffic, but I’ll leave my comments on that for another day).  It isn’t unusual for a student to twist or break something due to inattention.  Here are some “aceras” on our path to school:

Three nice ones:

These six aren’t so nice; watch your step!

And sidewalks in San José aren’t just for pedestrians:

Sometimes you have to cross a little bridge or the sidewalk just disappears:DSCF5617DSCF5621

Here’s the worst one!  A wrong step here and you probably end up in the hospital:DSCF5623
