Here are just a few amusing and crazy things about Leon. Add yours!!

---Religious parades may pass in front your house at 4:30 a.m. including a very noisy brass band.

---Taxi rides all around town are always $1.25

---Your typical traffic jam includes a truck, a bus, a horse-drawn cart, a pedicab, a guy sitting a wooden box pedaling with his hands, and three scooters with four passengers each.

---A delicious lunch with rice, beans, a potato cake and stir fried vegetables costs about an dollar, add another dollar if you want beef pork or chicken.


---There's nearly always a smoking volcano nearby, so you can expect a small earthquake now and again.

---In the market, the stall with the severed pigs head sitting on the bench is probably selling pork.

I live in Costa Rica and we also have parades with a very noise band around 5 AM passing in front of our gate.
The first time it happened I thought it was hilarious.
The tourists in our complex were very amused by it.

And when you are carefully negotiating a bad intersection and looking in at least 4 directions at once and some guy runs into the intersection screaming and waving his hands, not to worry...

He is only greeting his cousin he hasn't seen for 2 weeks.
