          Arrival in Flamingo

          A travel blog entry by roriann on May 25, 2014

          Well it's my first night with my host family in Flamingo and I'm so sad. When I got here they brought me through the back, straight to my room and told me to stay in here and rest. The mom was rude when I said I was 23 and kept saying she didn't think that was true, to the point where I felt really uncomfortable. I was excited to go see the beach and the water so after I unpacked I let the mom know I'd like to go ...

After we went in to town as it's their last night here. We had a dinner of street meat, which meant breaking my food rule of never eating meat off of street vendors as so many of my friends have had food poisoning from it, was really good actually! We also went to the gelato place as they've never been and I found that my ...

From our location, we can also see the Pacific Ocean in the far distance. This is a very windy area of the country; as we write this the wind is literally howling outside.
