Another Good Word for Ticos
I was in a friend's car in a bad tropical rainstorm. We were in heavy four-lane traffic right outside San Jose. His car stalled in the middle of the road. As he tried frantically to get it going, a policeman came to the window and said we would have to push it off the road. Mind you that during this whole time, not one horn honked. I got out in the rain and before I knew it three guys from the cars stuck behind us joined me in the pouring rain to help push the car off the road. They were gone before I could say "Thanks." That's the way Ticos are. They never cease to amaze me.
