Correos de Costa Rica is offering youngsters and adults the chance to learn about stamp collecting. The country’s postal service has set up two workshops in conjunction with its Museo Filatélico de Correos de Costa Rica.
The basic course begins Tuesday and runs for three days from 9 a.m. to noon for children and from 1 to 4 p.m. for adults. An intermediate course begins Feb. 1 and also runs for three days at the same times. Each course costs 4,000 colons, about $8.
January and early February are times when public school youngsters are on vacation, so many agencies and museums offer courses then.
