Villareal, Costa Rica Fiesta / Rodeo 12.18.10

Villareal, Costa Rica Fiesta / Rodeo 12.18.10

The guy riding the bull gets absolutely thrashed. Around 45 seconds. Rumors are he didn’t survive.

Watch out for that Bull!

A couple of weeks ago I got my first experience of a fiesta. Starting around Christmas time until the end of March every town in the area holds a fiesta to celebrate the saint of their town. The fiestas involve food, carnival rides and games. The mainstay of any fiesta is the rodeo. Its involves some bull riding and drunk Ticos dodging bulls. Check out this unsuspecting Tico get rolled. Why he wasn’t paying attention is beyond me.
