The next morning our guide, Javier, met us at our apartments at 9am to show the way to the San Jose Mall. We all made our way to the bus stop. Javier told us to have our bus money ready because the Costa Rican culture is very past paced. The bus finally arrived and cars began to file behind it and had to wait for the bus to move. Mind you, there are 14 of us. After the third person got on the bus, the cars already started honking for us to hurry up. We got on the bus and made our way to the mall. The things they had at the mall amazed me. They had hair salons, nail salons, and tattoo parlors. Although the currency was different, surprisingly, the clothes cost the same, sometimes more. They also had the same fast food restaurants as the U.S. Taco Bell, McDonald's, KFC, Popeye’s and Wendy’s. The only difference is that they were 10 times better. McDonald’s even had a separate station just for dessert.
