Today Marcela and I went to San Andresito San Jose. It is really an amazing place where you can buy absolutely anything, and everything is super cheap! The atmosphere of the place is just so interesting that it is fun to wander around and just look at everything (although, we did do some shopping too, of course). I really wish we had markets like this in Canada! I would probably enjoy shopping much more if I could do it at San Andresito all the time!
Here is a low-quality video I found on youtube, but it gives you a bit of a sense of what it is like. The video is of the older stores at San Andresito. There are newer ones that are not quite as crowded and look almost like regular malls, but still sell everything super cheap.
