QCOSTARICA – What happens to a big office tower during the long Christmas holiday?  Well, one landmark building in downtown San Jose got a bath while all the workers were away for vacation.


These photos were taken over several days during the past week.  They show a team of workers power-washing the head office of the state insurer, the Instituto Nacional de Seguros  (INS) on Avenida 7.

Anytime you think you have a tough job, you should look at these pictures. Especially that during the holiday period wind gusts reached up to 70 km/h.
