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 I´m 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...
