liguistas pequeñitos !!

Well I learned another lesson about Costa Rica.... the street venders start at more than double the cost of any given thing and will fight to the death. I worked long and hard to buy some soccer jerseys and shorts of the most popular teams here for my niece and nephew (we love you Miah and Teeney, and Micah too sorry there wasn't one small enough for you buddy) Anyways, I got the lady down from 10 mil to a little over six...($20 to $12) and felt like I won the battle of the price war... Come to find out I lost... I just found the same outfits for 3 mil ($6) at a small shop. I bought them for our kids and they wore them out on the town to Pricesmart and McDonalds tonight. We got quite a few looks and comments. Everyone seemed to think that they were very cute. Anyways, here are some pics... 
The other team is purple and white. They're called Saprissa and are actually a better team. When choosing the team that I would cheer for 1)I couldn't bring myself to wear purple and 2)I couldn't jump in and cheer for the best team. That would be like all of the people that liked New England only after they won the super bowl. Or maybe like the people that switched their team to the Cowboys  in the 90s. I'm still a Saints fan... even when they are terrible... Therefore I have no problem waiting for La Liga to get better.... Sorry for those of you who don't care about any of this  at all. Just enjoy the pictures... Until next time.

I would root for La Liga too if they were as cute as your kids in those jerseys!
