Requiem

Out of The city of Cartago in Costa Rica, you will find the beautiful Orosi Valley, with the River Reventazon carving its way through the valley floor. Before the arrival of the Spanish in Costa Rica, Orosi Valley was inhabited by indigenous ethnic Caribbean huetares and Viceitas, One of the landmarks in the area is The Iglesia de San Jose de Orosi, built in 1743 during the Colony and it is the oldest church still in use.

The church was packed the day we visited with people even standing outside. A beloved member of the community had died and everybody wanted to show support.
