    Flying to San Jose - carrying explosives?!

    A travel blog entry by amzellen on Sep 08, 2014

    ... airport. I couldn't really remember how far it was to the airport so allowed a lot of time and good job I did! Now the fun starts. First I had to pay $25 to check in a bag, then security got me. Yes they caught me, I had explosives in my bag. I should've hidden them a bit better really. Okay so what happened was they were doing random hand swabbing checks (which was weird enough) and of course they chose me. I mean why ...

    ... only a few flights a day, and even the terminal was closed up. I had to climb over the gate to get out and continue my walk back to the hostel. Then it was football o'clock, Costa Rica played Uruguay (and won, great excitement at the local bar) and then England lost to Italy. It was a fun day.

    Today began with a new running route for running club through the downtown area of the city-super pretty and a lot more flat! Less hills, yay! Then we went on campus, as usual, and I was paired with Danae, one of the stint team members, for the day. She is so so kind and probably the best Spanish speaker on the stint team, so she is also a little intimidating!
