Promptly at 6 o'clock this evening, the local people gathered in downtown Jaco began singing the national anthem. The entire country is on time for this event and the anthem is sung across the country in unison at 6 sharp. Amazing. It was fascinated to watch all the children with their parents participating in this beautiful tradition. It ended with the fireworks at the park. It was an early night tonight for the youngsters. Tomorrow is the big parade for Independence Day.
