I was invited by a friend to walk in the Independence Day parade on September 15th. in the town of Parrita. I was so excited to be a part of such a special event, and especially to be walking with the high school seniors on the eve of my 37th birthday! I was given a traditional Costa Rican dress to wear and my hair was done by my friends mother.
THAT DRESS!!! Oh, how I wanted to keep that dress.
It was really hot. The asphalt was burning right through my sandals so I danced most of the way just so I could lift my feet off the ground. Lucky for me we were positioned right behind the band. ;) Good times.
VIVA COSTA RICA!!!
