Costa Rica, the first country in Central America to legalize same-sex marriage
Costa Rica has become the first country in Central America to legalize same-sex marriage and the 28th UN state to recognize such unions.
'Costa Rica celebrates today! Marriage equality has become a reality in the country - the first in Central America! We rejoice with you: congratulations to all those who worked so hard to make this happen! '', Wrote the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association (ILGA) in a message posted on Twitter.
The Constitutional Court of Costa Rica ruled in August 2018 that the ban on same-sex marriage is unconstitutional and gave Parliament 18 months to legalize these unions, otherwise the provision would have automatically become null and void.
"This change will bring a significant social and cultural transformation of the country," said President Carlos Alvarado Quesada.
How social distancing in restaurants is provided in different countries
Along with masks, social distance has become a real sign of the time of the pandemic, which changed the face of cities; especially in the recently opened restaurants.
Coronavirus forced to make social interaction more organized: to reduce the risk of infection, people should maintain a distance of one and a half to two meters.
The restaurant owners all around the world have new problems: in the opened establishments, you need to force guests to stay away from each other. Restaurateurs invent the most exotic ways. There are places where you will be put in a greenhouse or forced to dine in the company of an inflatable doll in a wig.
Restaurants have already opened in Germany, but visitors are required to maintain a social distance of 1.5 m. In Schwerin, the owners of one of the institutions found an original solution to the problem: guests are given special hats.
Foam "blades" do not allow people to approach each other closer than the distance established by law. Customers note that this, of course, is not too comfortable, but they are glad of the opportunity to have lunch again in the restaurant.
