Tico Tico

You may well be aware that Costa Ricans, who are male, are called "Ticos." However, being from a rather musical family whose tastes ranged from classical to flamenco, I didn't know that fact until my son traveled to Costa Rica three years ago, and mentioned in one of his blogs that he was talking to a "Tico" outside one of the mercados. The song "Tico Tico" immediately popped into my head, and, thus, has become the title of this blog which will recount my travels in the country of Costa Rica... If you look on YouTube, you'll see several Tico Tico's - from Carmen Miranda to Paco de Lucia - to a Brazilian Group's version all playing the same song. So, entrada!
