Trip Start Jun 16, 2005
46Trip End Aug 2006
Just after getting back from Washington, DC, my aunt, uncle and cousins came to visit along with my cousin Josh's fiancee, Juli. We went straight to Manuel Antonio, since they arrived on a Friday, and stayed the weekend there before coming back to San Jose to play with the kids. Then, since there was an impromptu medical clinic on Thursday and Friday, we couldn't hold classes in the church, so we went to La Fortuna to see the volcano Arenal.
In Manuel Antonio, we hiked in the park, swam in the ocean and went whitewater rafting. Aunt Kathleen was a little nervous about the rafting, but ended up having a blast! We got to see so much, and we were so cool that none of us fell out. =)
In San Jose, we had classes with the kids and had a wonderful time
We took the bus to Arenal and got to go horseback riding to the waterfall there. We also went on a hike through the jungle to a lookout point where we got to see some lava. I've been there three times now, and it's the first time the clouds had lifted enough at night to actually see lava, so it was very cool.
Tomorrow, it's back to normal with the kids. It's been so nice to have all these people visit me, and it'll be interesting to see how I do all by myself!
Hope you're doing well!
