Flag of Costa Rica  ,
Tuesday, March 22, 2005

Right now is spring break time and Costa Rica has it's share of American students, some of which i met on the bus to Monteverde. The five students and i decided to get a room together so that the accommodation would be cheap and of course it is more fun that way. Now when i think of spring break i think of that episode of the Simpsons where Homer kills the crocodile. Unfortunately TV has been misleading me again and it wasn't quite like that but fun anyway.

We went for a wander around the forest during the afternoon/evening and saw loads of Animals. I finally got to see some white faced monkeys, spiders, snakes and a sloth. I also got the zip lines through the forest done and dusted, good fun but not really very scary. One of the cables was 770m long and you are out there for quite a while.

The highlight has to be climbing a path called Cerro Amigos. I the guy in the hostel told us that he had done it once and only once, i now know why. The path ran at about 35 to 40 degrees constantly for what felt like miles. I thought i was in reasonable shape but apparently not as i choked my way up the hill. The three girls put the blokes to shame as they disappeared into the distance. My clothes were literally wet by the time i got to the top, really attractive. The view was amazing for the 5 minutes between the clouds that swept in and created a big white out. I still think it was worth the effort even for the 5 minutes that the view was good.
