My dad built a chapel... the cloudforest of Costa Rica.

It's only accessible by driving 2 hours on the worst road imaginable, followed by a 20-minute terrifying/exhilarating ride on a quad bike. Also, most of the raw materials were brought in by using oxen and packhorses and until recently, he's had no communication with the outside world - he can now get a decent phone signal on a good day.

The funny thing is that he's not even religious, he just liked the design! It's based on a church he came across in a ghost town in Canada.

Here are some pictures I took over the past week whilst I was there:
