Flag of Costa Rica  ,
Saturday, December 10, 2005

Well with Spanish School in Costa Rica officially over I headed to San Jose for a night before catching the early Ticabus the next morning through Nicaragua to Honduras. Well the plan is to completely surprise her for her birthday present (come on it is only 2 weeks early) as she still thinks I have another week of school here. Well I just so happened to pick the day that Costa Rica officially starts celebrating Christmas (which I guess last s 15 days until Christmas) with this huge parade. So with a English girl fresh out of Spanish school in Argetina and a Nicaraguan mother who has been waiting for her daughter to arrive in Costa Rica we headed out to the Festival of the Lights. I must say it left something to be desired compared to the Rose Parade that Im used to but, it was fun to check out the floats they had down here (yes Coca-Cola is everywhere) and to practice my spanish with the Nicaraguan lady. Stay tuned to see if my plans to surprise Jules work out...
