Haunting Art of the Sanatorio Durán, Costa Rica

A note from the Publisher: The Costa Rica Blog Network has chosen to feature the following article for its exploration of a costa rican site nearly forgotten: “the former tuberculosis hospital. The edifice is now derelict: a sorry, dirty skeleton of a once thriving sanatorium where sufferers of the highly infectious disease were once treated in isolation; the cool mountain air serving as a panacea.” Thanks to Harriet for submitting her personal account to us. We hope the sanatorium visit was as chilling, thrilling, and thought-provoking for you as your written account of it is for us readers. Pura vida!
