With the holiday season comes numerous best “........” lists: albums, sports highlights, books--you get the point. So now that the holidays have come and gone here are my 10 favorite things about Costeño Christmas/New years.
10. The Flags come out
|Every year in December, the folks in La Boquilla start to drape little flags around town. I will now forever associate these with costeño "winter." |
|December and January seem to be the months where the most famous artists come to town. This year 's lineup included: Tego Calderón, Carlos Vives, Marc Anthony, and Summerland (electronic music festival)|
8. The burning of año viejo
|No evergreens here on the coast so the trees here are made with 2 liter bottles and plastic bags|
1. The Breeze: I can't believe I am about to say this, but with the breeze in December, January, and February I can walk around somewhat comfortable.
