We've Arrived!

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!

  1. Hola, amigas. Glad you got there in one piece, good thing I wasn't there to be cranky. And thanks for the cold airplane warning. I'll bring layers!
