After a day of hiking on Saturday, Sunday was a day filled with celebration for Costa Rica’s Independence Day!
Once Sheri (my roommate) and I wrapped up our breakfast, we walked into town to check out Heredia’s Parade. Along the way, the two of us managed to get lost. If you know me personally, this shouldn’t be a surprise! Eventually, we found our way to the town square to watch the parade. Primarily, students in the area schools participated in the parade. There were students playing in marching bands, performing dance and cheerleader routines, walking on stilts, and so much more!
I will say this happened to be the longest parade I have ever witnessed! Sheri and I arrived around 9:30 am and the parade was in full swing. A couple of hours later, the two us of met up with other Sol students. Around lunch time, our whole group went in search of ice cream. Even after ice cream, the parade was still going strong!
After a nutritious lunch of ice cream, our group decided to go to the mall to hang out and avoid the rain. Myself and another student, Kendall, went in search of a bookstore and the grocery store to buy a few items. I ended up purchasing Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone in Spanish.
A full day of festivities!
