Theres a few more random things I have noticed.
When you greet someone, usually they’ll say the usual, Hi my name is “So and so,” nice to meet you. But sometimes they say “Pura Vida” literally translated to Pure Life, which is their country phrase or logo, if one could call it that. However, they say it in place of almost everything!
Hey, how are you? –> Pura Vida
Yes, please. –> Pura Vida
You’re welcome. –> Pura Vida
[Answering the telephone] –> Pura Vida
We’ll have one more. –> Pura Vida
It’s kind of like one of “us” walking up to another person from the states and saying “Hey! What’s up!? Land of the free!”
Seriously? How weird would that be.
“What are you doing tonight?” –> Land of the free
“Sure, no problem!” –> Land of the free
“I’m so excited!” –> Land of the free
I don’t think so. That doesn’t have quite the same flow as Pura Vida, but I’m catching myself saying it too! It’s crazy the things you pick up in such a short amount of time!
Okay, that’s all for my random thoughts for the day.
I’m going to the beach this weekend on the Caribbean side so I should have some good photos to share next time!
Hasta.. eh ehm! I mean…
Pura Vida 🙂
