Whew—what a tiresome way to get to Tamarindo (taking a two day break before heading over to Nicaragua). First, we fly a freezing midnight flight (now they don’t give out blankets) to San Jose, CR, and then we managed to catch a bus that we boarded 45 minutes after getting off the flight. That was another 6 hour ordeal. We were beyond hot, tired (but not cranky) and just dying to jump into the beach. Plus, I had a very big backpack that’s not very comfortable to carry when hot. So, I will be tossing out books (weighs too much, contact solution (hoping that I won’t need the second one—I’m not sure if there are any in Nicaragua)—cross your fingers that it will help!
It was like returning to family here—everyone was so happy to see us—and surprised to see how tall Elyza has gotten.
Below–Elyza introduces herself and the beach:
The next day (today)–we spent the whole day at the beach. We found the same surfing instructor who worked with Elyza. Look at how much she’s improved already:
We’ll head over to San Juan Del Sur, Nicaragua tomorrow for two weeks. We’ll be staying with a “host family” and are so looking forward to our next adventures!
Adios por ahora! Pura Vida!
