This past weekend we had the big sunny season art festival called Transitarte; an Art Street Festival wrapped the parks of the capital city in music, dance, crafts and games for all ages.
Now and then, when I say I live in San José downtown, people looks at me as I was the craziest person on Earth. The noise, the pollution, the cars. However, I must say that living in the busiest city of Costa Rica has advantages, and there are times when it is simply beautiful. This past weekend was one of those as Transitarte; an Art Street Festival wrapped the parks of the capital city in music, dance, crafts and games for all ages.

Transitarte is one of the several art festivals celebrated in San José throughout the year. In this case, it is celebrated every year at the end of the sunny season. Five blocks of music, games, laughter, people taking video and pictures, marimba, flute, and trumpet sounds cocktails, aerial and typical dances, hundreds of original and unique crafts stands, concerts and hula hop! All together creating a magical vibe that turned to be contagious!
This festival is a reminder of what cities are supposed to be about. It was a chance to hear stories (There was one stand dedicated to storytelling from morning to night), and listen to all sorts of music, from reggae to rock.
An image goes beyond words, and so, I rather tell you about this great weekend through the pictures I took last Sunday while walking through my city and feeling happy to live here.
