This scene is all too familiar in Costa Rica. The whole family on the motorcycle, heads unprotected. Steve thinks that, at least, the children should have helmets.
He brings child-size bicycle helmets in his luggage from the US – he finds them at Goodwill and Salvation Army for about $2 a piece – and we hand them out when we see an unprotected child. The parents are grateful and the kids are thrilled, especially if it’s purple.
