We woke up to cheer on the La Carpio soccer team, which of course won! Then we decided to challenge them to a game ourselves and we creamed them…not really. Anyways, we all enjoyed a nice lunch of delicious hot pizza. After we all ate, the guides and Gail surprised us by taking us to La Plaza Democracia to watch the knockout match between Costa Rica and Greece for the World Cup. It was an experience like no other. Everyone had such spirit and pride for their country. It was an evening that could never be replaced. Ole! Ole! Ole! Ticos! Tiiiicos! Si se puede! The night even ended with a beautiful sunset!
