That evening back at the hostel we decided to go out for dinner with the two Dutch interns at the Spanish school, Anna and Manon, two other Dutch guests and the Belgian boy I was sharing a room with. We ended up having a lovely meal at Turrialba's nicest restaurant (this is not saying that much per se, though the food was indeed great) and afterwards we met up with half of the Dutch boys group at Leland's bar for a few more drinks to celebrate eh.. our survival?

Something that was interesting but not one of my more favorite parts of the trip was taking part in a night walk. We saw a viper, a few teranculas and a sloth with a baby.
Well, that is all to report today! Love to you all!
