It’s pretty fantastic to be speaking Spanish again. I absolutely love it and am finding it easier to remember vocab words. Or at least the words related to beaches and food:). Don’t ask me about my feelings or something in the past or future.
Costa Rica is beautiful. The lush vegetation and mountains are unlike anything I have ever seen. We drove through 3 hours of undulating mountains from San Jose to Tamarindo. So astounding that at one point there was mist rolling over the top of a mountain range reminiscent of “Jurassic Park”. (Yeah that out of this world).
Today we took to the beach for relaxation and sun. We really need sun. We snuck onto a resort property to avoid the $10 beach chair fee and utilize the hotel bar by charging drinks to a fictitious room number. (Ok, ok we paid cash for our drinks. I’m sure Sam would have gone for it but luckily I grew up in straight laced Kansas and am way mature).
