I finally made it out of Puntarenas. I just got back from Playa Hermosa/Jaco. I loved it. The beaches are different there. There is big black sand and pebbles. And it was soooooo hot and humid. But the fauna is greener and bigger and beautiful. Oh and did I mention there was a Surf Competition in Hermosa. It was pretty interesting. Lots of internationally known surfers, of course I had no idea who anyone was but they certainly were fun. I stayed in a little tin roof shack with my friend Lorea. I ate the best Tuna ever. I will go back just for this meal. And when I have visitors we are going. There actually were not that many Ticos. A lot of South Americans, Venezuelans, Chileans, Brazilians. On that note, Jaco on the other hand was a little disappointing. It is just a dirty little americanized city with lots of hookers. We all had a good time and bar hopped in Jaco but you would probably have to drag me back.
    Tomorrow is more teacher training. Hopefully, we all just don´t sit there like last week. It was very frustrating. Oh and the carnival is almost here in Puntarenas. We got off the bus and barely recognized our little town. So many people!!!!! They are building new stages and bars everywhere. Apparently it is this huge party from Feb. 8th -18th. Conveniently the first week of school. And the carnival is right out on the street below my balcony. I am prepared I have my ear plugs all ready to go.

Well Liz, it certainly sounds like you're making the most out of your time there in Costa Rica!
Sounds a little frustrating on the job front, but give it time. I hear we live too fast in the US, so it'll probably take a while to get used to what you refer to as 'Tico time'. (what the hell does that mean anyway?)
Love you and keep in touch! Love the pics!
