Nothing like an early morning beer for Expats celebrating the Fourth

Beer is not the first thing that comes to mind at 8 a.m. on the eve of Fourth of July.
But – like the Americans who surrounded me in this open space just west of San José – it took me only a minute to raise my hand for an ”Imperial.”
Held on the grounds of Costa Rica’s Cerveceria, the Independence Day celebration featured cotton candy, popcorn, live music, a mini-parade and anything else that would make an American feel more at home.
Because the Fourth falls in the heart of raining season, event planners schedule the celebration to take place between 8 a.m. and noon.
But the early hour is no deterrent for these hearty Expats who readily raised their glasses of beer to wish the United States of America one very happy birthday.
