Generations of my family worked for years to build Casa de Fruta from a seasonal cherry stand to a multi-dimensional road-trip traveler’s paradise. My grandmother Clara provided the innovation: “Build a restroom and travelers will stop.” She was right. The luck? Turns out that little cherry stand on Pacheco Pass was between Monterey and Yosemite and in the middle of the two major north-south corridors between San Francisco and Los Angeles.

Costa Rica to allow tourism from only six US states



Costa Rica announced that the residents of just six US states will be allowed to visit the country starting on September 1.

According to an announcement made by Costa Rica’s tourism board, only Americans residing in Connecticut, Maine, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York and Vermont will be permitted to travel to Costa Rica.

“In these six states, there has been a very positive evolution of the pandemic and their epidemiological indicators are of high quality,” Gustavo Segura, Costa Rica’s Minister of Tourism, said in a statement.

In order to enter the country, American travelers will be required to present a valid driver’s license that shows they’re a resident in one of the approved states.

Tourists entering Costa Rica are also required to complete an online epidemiological health form prior to arrival and present negative results from a COVID-19 test administered within 48 hours of arrival.

UN counts devastating cost of COVID-19 on global tourism

BENGALURU, India: TikTok CEO Kevin Mayer has left the Chinese-owned video app firm just three months after joining, and only days since the company sued the administration of US President Donald Trump over an executive order effectively banning it in the United States.

He will be replaced by US general manager Vanessa Pappas on an interim basis, TikTok said in a statement. The resignation comes at a tricky time for super-fast growing TikTok as it tries to persuade both the US and India that it is not a security threat, while at the same time holding discussions with prospective buyers following a second US order demanding the sale of its US operations.

Mayer was Walt Disney’s top streaming executive before he became chief executive officer of TikTok and chief operating officer of parent company ByteDance on June 1.

“In recent weeks, as the political environment has sharply changed, I have
