Pura vida en la playa
07/17/2011 - 07/18/2011
Woke up yesterday woke up, paid for another dia en la hamicka and headed to the kitchen with my fresh eggs. Un amigo that was cooking his torttillas fritas. I've seen him making then before and it reminded me of home...not sure why because no one makes them para mio. When he was done, he offered me one and I did eat! It was the size of a doughnut and had a little bit of sugar on it, muy RICO! tasted like a sopapilla.
We decided to head to the beach down the road. We walked for about 15minutes and caught a trail toward the beach. It was pretty and kept my eyes making sure I didn't touch anything. We nade made it to the beach but thought we were at the wrong place because it was still dense but I walked to the left and saw miles of beautiful beach as the waves hit them. I was overcome by the moment and just started to laugh! WOW!
"In this great future, u can't forget the past." No Woman, No Cry was on before I left and I found myself singing it as I walked down the beach. We found a spot and jumped in. The weather was nice and the water was great. The waves were pretty good and some people we're surfing. I used the surfboard my momma gave me and did some bodysurfing.
I was laying on the beach and Estephan de France (met him and los dos othros my first night here) popped up from the surf! We went with him to neet his amigos de rugby. First time throwing the rugby ball? But didn't make the mistake of throwing overhand, I got a little more sense then that!
I was chasing the ball down and got the feeling to run, so I ran. Let my feet take me down the beach like it was my first time. That is the way I sieze the moment!
When we were walking back, two amigas de Swiss we met before rode up en los bicicletas. We chatted as we walked back and decided to chill for a bit. One of them had been studying spanish here so we talked mainly in spanish
. Never thought I'd be walking down the street in CR speaking spanish with a Swiss girl!
We were back at the hostel when we met Buck de Boston. He is a skater for Disney on ice and travels the world with them, cool! We made plans to meet them later for dinner.
Had shrimp cocktail, which was good, y un Cuba Libre. Afterwards we headed over to the Lazy Mon bar for some live music. We ran into, christaino who had been here for 3 days but couldn't find us. They were headed out in the morning so we said goodbye. My friend de las tortikkas fritas was next to me and we talked. He is a friend of my braceket making friend Adrian de Argentina and travels with him. The music was great so I found a spot in front, and introduced myself to Stephanie de Canada.
Today we decided to get a good breakfast so we walked into town and had some rediculously good pancakes de pineapple. They were served with fresh pineapple, watermelon, and strawberries with a sidecar of molasses. Es muy rico.
Made plans to take a trip to bocas del toro in Panama tomorrow. Have to head to san jose to get my bank card but ill figure that out later.
