We then found out that there is a Walmart just around the corner and set out to explore. It literally is a copy of the American stores with all the American products. We did stock up on a few things because we had some difficulties finding e.g. dark ...

3am wake up call leads us onto a 4am bus back to Playo Carillo (the only tickets left!!). However, this turns out to be the biggest blessing in disguise. We hike down the dirt path from our hostel with all our bags and wait by the crocodile bridge for the bus. Yami, Anna, the two of us as well as another sweet 8 year old named Sofie are heading back to San Jose, the capital city. Sofie's parents own the Hola Jungla restaurant in Playo ...

I had lunch in town, asked around to see if there ...

The group woke up early and had a continental breakfast at the hostel. Then off to central market...but we forgot today is Sunday and it is closed. So we walked around town and visited a park. The area looks far different than home but that is how I like to travel. We hit a panaderia for naked goods and checked out a grocery store. Cost of living is relatively high compared to incomes. People are friendly but the students are shy about using Spanish. But so far everyone is excited to be ...
