Wow, I didn’t realize it had been so long since I posted anything here. In my defense, I’ve been busy. Since the last post I’ve been working and traveling, so writing has taken a back seat.
Today’s post will be short, too. I just wanted to mention a new variation on the “Sad Jesus Head” stickers one finds all over on cars, buses, and trucks in Costa Rica. Here are a few examples of what I’m talking about:
Seen with a jumble of other stencils on a repair truck of some sort.
My friend Dustin took this picture of a bus in San Ramon. I think it’s interesting how they put the word “God” (“Dios”) in quotation marks.
Here’s one for the Sad Jesus Head Sticker traditionalists. I saw it on a bus here in Berlin de San Ramon.
All very common yet nice examples of the species. However, the other day we were driving back from work and saw this sticker on the back of a Hyundai Elantra “pirate” taxi:
I will keep out of the religious aspects of this, but something tells me this design isn’t a coincidence!
Have any of you seen Sad Jesus Head Stickers (or Smoking Slash Head Stickers, for that matter) in any strange places? Share your story!
Thanks for reading and have a good day.
Speaking of Old School, these old 5 colones bills were indeed awesome, weren’t they? I guess it’s too bad that today 5 colones is only worth a penny.
It’s been a month since I last posted something, but in my defense it’s been a busy month. Today’s post isn’t original writing or anything, but I guess that’s better than nothing. I saw this video on my friend Wilson’s Facebook page. It’s pretty amazing:
It made me wonder, “Is there more than one Costa Rica?” And I don’t mean that in some kind of existential sense, like, “Wow, we’re really changing as a society, it’s like we’re a different country now.” I mean it like, “Can it be possible that the explanation is that there’s another Costa Rica somewhere–one that has the nice roads, a first-class airport, and the tranquil lifestyle that this film promises??”
Anyhow, it’s a pretty interesting little video, so check it out if you’ve got 10 minutes. Have a good weekend!
