Remember back in March when we announced that our beloved Sloth Kong was taking over Costa Rica's Juan Santamaría International Airport? Well, it turns out that the hospitality offered to big SK at his new digs has been overwhelming. Hundreds – perhaps thousands – of travelers passing through Costa Rica's busiest air hub have stopped to snap their photo with Sloth Kong.
This week, the Costa Rican women's national football team, also known as "La Sele," earned its first-ever point in a FIFA World Cup, during a 1-1 tie with Spain. As far as we know, officially it is also the first sighting of Ms. Sloth Kong, pictured here. In their next match, Las Ticas take on South Korea tomorrow at 5 p.m., Costa Rica time. ¡Vamos, Sele!
