Keeping You In Stitches

Another fiesta in Costa Rica

Posted on: January 30, 2013

Mark and I keep marveling at how we were told on our “due diligence” trip that we would NEVER be invited to a Tico’s home!  Well, that’s not true!!!  We’ve been invited to Maricela’s home for various celebrations! (And they have been invited to our home too!)

Last week we went to a fiesta at her Mother’s home – a ceremony for the children and to put away the nativity scene till next year.  Music, dancing and most of all, the most tasty food!  Whoever says Costa Rica doesn’t have good food, needs to eat at a person’s home!

Maricela served a chicken soup/stew with all kinds of veggies in it and garbanzo beans! She even sent some home with us!  Had an eggnog type drink with rum, yum!

Nazareth can get me to do fun stuff!  As soon as the music starts, she can’t be still; the hips and feet start moving and don’t stop until the music stops!  She drug me out of the chair to dance…..I don’t know if it’s because I’m older, but Costa Rican songs go on, and on, and on, and on!  Talk about exhaustion!!!

Saw some of the same people that were at the fiesta last week, along with new people last night.

And, we got invited to another fiesta on Thursday night in Los Angeles!  Be still my heart (and feet)!  Mark is not sure he’s going, but you can rest assured I’ll be there with bells on!!!

The people in Costa Rica have been so welcoming.  Everyone is happy!!!  And it’s contagious!!!

Still lovin’ our life here!

Pura Vida!
