The Lagarita Fiesta
Part fair, part rodeo, and part dancy party, the small town fiestas that happen every weekend leading up to the holidays are pure Costa Rican enjoyment. All the locals come out to celebrate, eat, mingle, sing karaoke, get down, and in the case of the men, show off their bull-dodging-while-intoxicated skills. We were lucky enough not to witness any gorings, though we've heard tales... As per usual, we had the camera in hand documenting all the local flavor. The color images are Joe's, the black & whites mine.*
*This one color shot of Tully chowin' down on a caramel-stuffed churro is mine, too. And yeah, it tastes as good as it sounds.
