SAN JOSE, Feb. 1 (Xinhua) -- Costa Rican Foreign Ministry on Friday expressed deep sympathy for millions of Chinese people who suffered from recent heavy snow falls in southern China."Win the final victory in the fight against bad weather?" No offense, but are you friggin' crapping me? He might as well have said, "We are really hoping your people can get back to work in all of those factories, because boy, we sure do want you to ship us your cheaply made and lead-infested goods! And as soon as possible! Never mind that Costa Ricans are pretty racist when it comes to Asians! When it comes to anyone who is not Costa Rican, actually! We want your crap! Did I mention cheaply?!?"
Since mid-January, continuous snow falls and low temperatures have played havoc in China's southern provinces, and at this time of difficulty, the Costa Rican government sends its solicitude to the Chinese government and its people, the foreign ministry said in a statement.
In related news, I read that San Jose's mayor and chamber of commerce want to build an official Chinatown. Where does it end? No, wait ... it doesn't! Commercialism and greed, one of Costa Rica's top imports.
