We were in Costa Rica headed to the Arenal Volcano and we stopped in the village of Sarchi. The town’s claim to fame is it has the world’s largest oxcart. Although after seeing it I really can’t imagine an actual ox or oxen pulling it. The Cart is huge maybe 10 to 15 feet tall. It is very colorfully painted and is visually stunning, but seemed impractical for actual use.

I’m almost six foot and the wheel is taller than I am. The artwork is very nice. 

Across the street from the oxcart is a very nicely painted church. It is the only one I saw in all Costa Rica that was painted green.
