When I was in Costa Rica during the holidays one day the whole family went to the countryside house of my sister in law's parents. The house sits on a large piece of land surrounded by coffee and sugar cane plantations.
One or my favorite things was the stables where they keep the horses. I've always loved horses and as a kid I wanted to be in professional horseback riding competitions (amongst many other professions!) and always looked for places and people to go horseback riding with.
While walking around the property I stopped by their stables and took some images that I love because of the rustic contrast they create with the stuff I have been posting over the past few days.
Have a nice day and hope your first 2011 week is going well so far!
