After a weekend with lots of excitement, I don't feel like I have any great stories from today... I could tell you about how much my students make me laugh, but I'm not sure it would have the same effect since you can't picture each individual's unique personality.
We did go to the Independence Day parade in Desamparados on Monday morning, so here's a few pics from that experience.Kids were dressed up in the traditional costumes of Costa Rica. This boy caught me taking his picture :).
What a cutie! These outfits are sold at the Mercado Central for weeks before this celebration.
Look!! There's glockenspiels here in Costa Rica too! (I played this mallet instrument in the high school band... It's name identifies it as German :))
More percussion and glockenspiels :)
Oh, and a p.s. to my mom: Thanks for all the prayers today; it went a lot smoother than I had anticipated! Love you! :)
