July 4: Went to the Embassy's fourth food and beer, which was good...but the display was a bit over the top(square dancing and bluegrass music), not so good. Caught a bus to Puerta Viejo and just in time to check in at Rockin Jays, on to Sophia's party, then to Bambu for Reggae night.

July 5: Wake up, rent bikes and almost die as we ride 24 kilometers with massive worries though, we felt like a million bucks when it was all over. After, back to camp for showers, then Jay took us out for some really nice veggie pizza and then went to Johnny's to dance for a while before finally making it home + about 10 extra people.

July 6: Kiley attempts surfing...and actually gets up! Definitely fun, but learned at Playa Negra(black sand=blistered feet). Chant just hung out back at J's with poppie and Yamu...then we Packed up, said good bye and on another bus. The ride home turned out to be kind of exciting b/c Kiley almost gets arrested when the bus stops, cops get on to check passports...and whatayaknow, Kiley doesn't have one. So, after a tense moment and a lot of smiling and explaining, we get out of it. Unfortunately, a few of the other people were not so lucky. FYI: do not get on the bus from Puerta Viejo to San Jose if you are without passport b/c they check every bus, every day. The bus home was not so fun this time because both of our bums are sore from bike riding and our legs are rubbed raw from riding in our swimsuits...finally get home just in time to make dinner and relax a bit.
