I have been getting a lot wonderful five-star reviews on Amazon for my book, “The Real San Jose.” Here is one that I particularly like from Deborah Rojas, a Costa Rican lady (a “Tica”). Deborah works at Galeria Namu, an art shop and gallery that specializes in art from Costa Rica's indigenous tribes. She writes:

“I’m a Tica who works in downtown San José, in Barrio Amón to be exact -described in one of the chapters of Mr. Miller’s book. It was refreshing to take a look at the city through someone else’s eyes. I found out about places of which I had no idea! I now keep this little jewel handy, as reference to help anybody who comes into the shop (an indigenous/folk artwork gallery, so we get LOTS of tourists) looking for recommendations.

Thanks, Mr. Miller, for a work of love for a city that needs it!”- Deborah Rojas, Galeria Namu

Wow! What an amazing review. Thank you, Ms. Rojas.
