Even the nicest houses here are simple and small, but each one is as colorful as the owners can afford to make it. Colorful banners above the streets are a common sight.
Our own small contribution to color is a variety of placements and dishes to brighten up our little hotel apartment.
Trucks and buses are privately owned, and each one is brightly painted to make a statement about the owner’s business.
A lot of businesses have religiously themed names. The “Good Shepherd Pharmacy” seems more appropriate to us than “Divine Child Lubricants” and “Joshua 1:9 Carwash,” which we pass every day.
The brightly decorated Boaco Parque Central entrance and fence are typical for even very small cities.
