I spent two days in mid-September at the Simón Bolivar Zoo, both for a group project on Costa Rica’s public zoo in San José. I even got a chance to interview the director. Useful trips if for nothing other than to cross animals off my “to see in Costa Rica” list.

PHOTOS: Costa Rican Independence Day

I woke up one morning after spending the weekend in San José to crowds surrounding downtown as children with typical dress, flags and batons marched down the street in honor of Costa Rican independence Day, Sept. 15.

Día de al Virgen de los Ángeles

My head started to spin. I lost my appetite. I was confused.

I was going through reverse culture shock, three months early.

It’s an odd reaction to have when parents come to visit, but in this case, it makes perfect sense.
