There are two small bars in whole Liberia, that of course limit the opportunities to go out `for real` and we have to be happy with what we get. The problem is, that the one, called `Bar de luna`, and with actually good music is crowded with gay people and woman are hardly to be found in this cozy place. Not to mencion the crowd of men, that is not interessted in looking out for women at all, but to hook up with some Tico, that is willing to fulfill their necesidad to become the affection they long for. For all of you, that have asked us about Tico men and how they are, we must really disappoint you and its sad to say so. They are adcited to sex and no normal teenage kid in Costa Rica seems to be single, due to their fear to end up alone some day or not having someone to wipe away grey, raniy days (that have just started in Liberia). Its unbelivable, how partnerships work in Costa Rica, where partners cheating on each other and being unfaithful is not an uncommon thing to do. A Tico is not considered to be a real Macho if he is not interessted in a woman, that passes by him on the streer, trying to give her all possible attention.
Now imagine Aileen and myself, walking through Liberia streets and not even looking TOO european! We get almost everybody`s attention and its even worse, if we walk alone in the streets, trying to ignore all the `Hey sexy sexy baby` or `Beautiful, beautiful, Ohlala`, that Tico Machos cant keep for themselves.
So far so good, still trying to take it with a smile and thinking, that its just a normal part of their culture and we should not judge them to harsh. But saturday night reached the PEAK and made me understand, that this is just not normal anymore and there is no way to EVER accept Tico Macho culture. Where are the boring but predictable german guys?? I never thought I would miss them, but now i must admit that I do so, indeed.
We went out to this above mentioned Bar de Luna, with a Tico showing up next to us that we know from university, and somehow standing right beside us ALL THE TIME, with that grin in his face and feeling supersexy or whatever. He didnt realize, that it would be maybe possible to leave us alone just for some minutes and when it was enough for me, I ran out, Aileen after me, and 30 seconds later he showed up AGAIN next to us, still grinning all over his face.
We tried a way to politely ignore him and started to speak in german all the time, which didnt bother him at all and he then even asked, why we naver hang out together before?? This was the top and when he asked, if we want him to go, i could only say YES, looking into his surprised face, still not wanting to let go of us!! Never before have we meet with someone so totally ignorant and totally unsociable to realize, when to go with some kind of pride, that is unknwown to him! We then went to the other bar, `Kuru`, waiting for some friends and believe it or not, he showed up AGAIN!!!! With his friend, that was WORSE than him and no more could we take it! We yelled something and then headed towards the house, hoping, not to see them again, hearing more `Sexy sexy baby`on the way home and being completely worn out by this MACHO CULTURE. Men dont respect woman in any way and the word NO doenst exist in their limited small world, that only works when they see a female.
So please, whats wrong here? Next time we are going here, we must definately go with our male friends, otherwise we are the TOP TARGET and go through the same story again!
Only be warned! .)
