Today Luis Guillermo Solís became the 47th President of Costa Rica. He attended the ceremony with his partner, First Lady Mercedes Peñas Domingo.
The 90 minutes inauguration started at 10am with the entry of international delegations, followed by an official act of the Legislative Assembly and ended with a speech by Solís.
Six presidents, mostly from Central America and representatives of 80 countries attended the cerenomy.
It was a little bit like on a public viewing event. All Ticos (People from Costa Rica) had flags and were singing and clapping. You could feel that the people have very high expectations and hopes.
