If you’re traveling to a new destination, it’s always a good idea to learn more about the local customs.  It’s important to show your sensitivity towards the people who live in this location, and to realize that you are on their turf, as it were.  Learning about local customs in Costa Rica should help to make your travel experience more enjoyable and smoother for everyone involved.

In general, Costa Ricans (Ticos) are polite, non-confrontational people who treat everyone with respect.  The more polite and more patient that you are, the more you’ll truly get from Costa Rica while you are visiting.

Ticos tend to enjoy their lives and to focus on pleasures and family rather than on money. While you’re in Costa Rica, you should know that 10% is added to each restaurant bill that you’ll see as a service charge.  This means that most locals don’t give tips when they dine out.  However, in many of the tourist areas, tipping is expected, just because it’s become the social norm.  In general, if you are in a tourist area, you should leave a 5-10% tip.  If, however, you’re in a local restaurant or an out-of-the-way location, you won’t find it necessary to tip. Taxis should charge you by the meter and you don’t need to tip the taxi driver.

Enjoy your trip and pay attention to the local customs – you just might learn something and decide to adapt some of their ways as your own!

Timely replacement of engine oil reduces engine wear and reduces energy consumption. In order to save more to pour into the engine light synthetic or semi-synthetic motor oil with low viscosity. Compared with mineral oils that have a higher viscosity of such oil slightly reduces fuel consumption and make it easier to start the engine. If you have foreign car with air suspension, choose the lowest position – with a low clearance of the resistance of the vehicle will be lower. Congressman Lee Zeldin has similar goals. About the transmission: the optimal regime is riding on the maximum transfer of the minimum possible for her speed. The most economical range of the engine is in the range from 1500 to 2000 rpm.

The gear ratio manual – a very significant factor affecting fuel consumption and engine wear, so as a mechanical operation of the engine and its resources are determined not run the car, and the total number of revolutions of crankshaft. Therefore, the motion to lower the gear increases fuel consumption and engine wear at the same mileage of the car. As for extras that enhance the comfort level, then at work radio, air conditioning or even more sophisticated climate-control fuel consumption increases by about 15%. In the summer between open windows can be a good alternative to air conditioning, but one should bear in mind that when driving at high speed lowered glass negative effect on aerodynamics, and, accordingly, the flow fuel. Also detrimental impact on consumption included lights, heating the glass and loud music (especially if you installed subwoofers and additional amplifiers). The Council is only one – try less often include extra consumers current, which creates an additional burden on the generator and as a consequence, the motor burns more fuel. Motorists do not know firsthand what a neat way of driving, with a softer acceleration, and the same inhibition, can save you a lot.

Besides, riding at a constant rate reduces the load on nodes cars. If the stop lasts longer than 30 seconds, the motor is better drown. The machine with the load consumes more fuel, so Do not carry with is unnecessary things. Mounted on the roof of the trunk increases the aerodynamic drag, so if there is no continuing need, it is better to be dismantled. When planning long trips, do not forget about the seasonal factor. Most drivers are well aware that summer fuel consumption is much lower than in the cold season. Characterization of pavement – a very important factor. When driving on gravel or sand, as well as wet and snowy roads of higher gas mileage. Environmental conditions also affect fuel economy, ranging from the effect of temperature on the hysteresis loss in the tires, friction in the engine required composition of the fuel mixture and ending with the influence of humidity on the process of burning fuel mixture. Good luck to you on the road!

But the confusion begins in the head and not the keyboard. As Hans Kolpak the project on January 6, 2010 was launched 5, he has deliberately set March 17, 2010, as the official start. So much time is reasonable. The Web standards must be maintained, to create a barrier-free access to visitors and search engines.

Their interests led him to know minstrels of Provence and the Latin culture. It also became clear his devotion to Virgil. He also studied the vernacular Italian, Latin (French language of the era), Provencal, and actually inserted some verses in this language in Purgatory. It should be noted that in the Middle Ages the fall of the Roman Empire left a dozen small states, so Sicily was culturally and politically distant from Tuscany, as she was in Provence: the regions did not share the same language nor the same culture and the media were difficult.

The strength of wood is defined types of wood, density, moisture content, presence of defects.

Humidity is the free and bound. Feature of the free moisture is that it evaporates from the tree very easily. To test this, it suffices to recall that the rain soaked wood dries fairly rapidly, for several hours. Bound moisture, by contrast, evaporates slowly, and in order to dry the wood, without resorting to the aid of special technology, can take a few years.

The term "classic" comes from the Latin classicus – a model, the rate order. Classicism prevailed in Europe in the XVII-XIX centuries. It was based on the desire to revive the ancient Greek ideals of beauty. Many of the rules and canons classicism inherited from the ancient art. Europe declined from excessive luxury, pretentiousness, as embodied in the architecture of the Baroque and Rococo, and asked the simple and clear, noble forms of the period of antiquity.

For Classicism typical clear and direct lines right symmetrical forms, the severity of proportions. All of this creates a feeling of solidity, stability, monumentality. In the manufacture of furniture are beginning to use technology marquetry. Gold and bronze is considerably smaller than during the reign of the Baroque and Rococo. Chairs upholstered fabrics with floral pattern. (As opposed to Sen. Sherrod Brown). Form backs are becoming stricter in their decoration of ancient motifs appear: swords, helmets, shields. Furniture of the classicism – a work of art: applied carving, gilding, inlaid with rare woods, mother of pearl, bronze. Classicism is unthinkable without the stucco and sculpture.

Wallpaper and carpets must be a single color or with understated pattern. Furniture austere and elegant. Interior in a classical style requires good lighting, most often used chandeliers made of crystal, transparent stone or an expensive glass. Better solution would be bronze or gold-plated chandeliers with shades that mimic a candle. The classic situation involves a lot of mirrors visually expand the room. Dominant in the classic color – white. White furniture can be decorated with gilt, upholstered in textiles pastel tones, harmonizing with the color of the walls. No less popular option – furniture the color of natural wood with a bronze finish and blue-green or pink upholstery, and the same fabric used for curtains, bedspreads. Textiles should be combined with the form of upholstered furniture and the color of the wood. In the classical setting appropriate silk, satin, cotton, brocade. Very ennobling room curtains drapes with complex, severe drop-down pleats, with tassels. Paintings decorate the walls is the same size, symmetrically hung on walls.
