For some reason, that I have yet to discover, I really dig ox drawn carts. Some men like red fire trucks or steam engine locomotives, I happen to like carts pulled by oxen. Every time I see them on the road I wave to the drivers. My wife and kids think I am a dork, but I don't care. These carts are slow and steady and the animals work very hard. There is a lot to appreciate about them even though the carts are not as decorated as they are in Costa Rica. Maybe they are symbolic of a bygone era, I will never know. In the meantime, I will continue waving and appreciating the old timers working their oxen in such a stylish way.
