99% literacy in the U.S. ? What B.S. unless you count literaacy as being able to sign your name and read a Mc Donald's menu. I met a lot of people who can't read well enough to function without help, right here in the good old U.S.A.
I hate it when someone pulls my leg and doesn't send flowers first

Personally, I find rain forests and active volcanoes to be very beautiful. Natural waterfalls and white water rivers are also high on my list of beautiful things. Of all the countries I have been to (and the list is quite long) Costa Rica ranks in the top 5 for natural beauty. Sure that's just my opinion, but many others share it. It is still a third world nation and San Jose is a large disorganized mess of a city, but the natural beauty of the nation outside of San Jose is beyond dispute. The people of Costa Rica are also very friendly and charming. I am planning another trip for September!!
