Where I stayed
Well, right now I'm about four days into two weeks of traveling without Tracy. I'm hanging out with Paul and Anne. They're Aussie so we drink a LOT of beers together all the time. Their ability to speak Spanish is worse than mine. And they promise to help me get from Montezuma to Samara. Easily. No, this is not going to be easy.
It turns out, the bus they were taking me to from Paquera to Nicoya is nonexistent. I considered getting a cab, but then found out it was going to be $40US. So I opted to go on the ferry to Puntarenas with Paul and Anne on their way to Monteverde, then take a bus to Nicoya. Sorry, no such bus. A local guy there told us the best way for me to get to Samara, for and Paul and Anne to get to Monteverde was to drive me to a spot on the Interamerican Highway on their way to Monteverde and drop me off on the side of the road to catch a bus to Nicoya
Samara. I'm not even supposed to be here, let alone by myself. But let me put all your fears to rest right now. I had a really good time in Samara. A really good time, but dont tell Tracy because I told her I was huddled in a corner, rocking and humming to myself the whole time out of fear and boredom without her.
Anyway. It was really very nice there. I met Paul, Johnny, David, Oz, Bruce, Jim and alot of other really stellar people on my first night in town. All because Paul and Anne had been there before me and told me where to go, which totally made up for the bus mix up.
I didnt to very much while I was in Samara except swim in the ocean some days and party with stellar people most nights. I did rent a motorcycle, which cost me $30US for 24 hours, and I had a blast cruising up and down the coast.
I'd go back to Samara in a second, but dont tell Tracy because I told her I was huddled in a corner, rocking and humming to myself the whole time out of fear and boredom without her. Yeah, right.
