Went out for dinner tonight with 2 friends that I'll be traveling with this weekend, learned more Spanish, took a conversation class at 4 and more salsa at 3. A fun/long day. Weather is awesome.

We hikes around the base of the volcano and I got to jump in and swim in a waterfall and see many cool creatures, including spider monkeys!! We then got to experience a real intense storm at the volcano and I felt like I was in the movie of Jurassic park haha. The truck we were riding in had windows that were fogging up, it ...
