July 19: Wake up at 5:30 with only a few hours of sleep, and head to the cloud forest for a canopy tour. We got our own guided tour seeing as we were the only people crazy enough to go in this weather(rainy, windy, cold). Estefan and Peter(our guides) assured us that although the view isn't gonna be that great b/c of all the clouds.....the zip lines go faster when they're wet. He was right...it was really amazing! After climbing about 90 spiral stairs, you can't see your hand in front of your face, let alone where you're headed at 70 km an hour
July 20: Toni tries to wake us up at 7 am...did we mention the bar owner gave us a complementary bottle of tequila last night...I'm just glad the walls were thin enough to talk to her without disrupting my brain with vertical movement. Finally get up in time to eat part of a breakfast that would end up haunting us later...and back in the van with Ronie. About halfway into the trip, Ronie starts to swerv a bit, which is when we realize that Chant has fallen asleep in the front...a little exposed ;) After Toni covers her up...his driving improved immensely. Back to San Jose where the parents are ready to have a beer, the thought of which iniates a violent gag reaction in our world( maybe a little to literally in Kiley's). But they're only in town for the weekend, so we got back in the game. Long story short...ended up at the Colonial Casino around 6pm toasted and ready to spend some money. The Roulette table was good to all of us...and Chant and I made enough money to pay for our trip to Cuba next week.
Will write more later.........
