    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – “The experience is exciting and fills me with great pride. I came by train early in the morning and have not eaten much; I only drank a bottle of water, and have spent time on Facebook,” said James Alvarado Quiros, the first Tico to fill out his ballot in Sydney, Australia for the 2014 presidential election in Costa Rica.

    Alvarado is a native of Costa Rica, is 32 years old and resided in Sydney for nine years.

    Gloriana Quirós Venegas, his wife, flew from New Zealand because she considered it very important to vote since the country is experiencing a political scene without precedent.  She is the second Costa Rican to place her vote.

    “I am a civil engineer and I work here. He was born in San Jose. I love my country,” she said.

    Regarding the number of Costa Ricans residing in Australia, according to Consulate General, there are 178 to date and 32 living in New Zealand.
