Written 12:00
So I got up at 0400 this morning to be ready for my shuttle at 0500 and my flight at 1230.

It was difficult getting up and all I wanted was a warm shower which started with a cold one, but in the end I finally had the warm water and I woke up. The shuttle driver got there 10 minutes BEFORE he was meant to, which took me by surprise, because the other shuttles have been about 20 minutes too late. So I thought I had plenty of time... Anyway... The shuttle took about 45-50min which wasnīt calculated in my schedule. It meant now that I would have 6.5hrs in the airport before my flight... SWEET!

At check-in I asked if it was possible to get an earlier flight. I knew there was one, because I was debating when I booked my ticket, if I wanted to take this one or the one I ended up with. AAAAND luckly I got to change my flight to the 0800 oīclock flight instead!! That REALLY made my day!!! I walked away as a happier person!:)

The flight to San Jose, I slept most of the way. Except the landing which was horrible!! REALLY horrible.. I always find it amazing how different airlines do the landing... This one was fast down with loads of bumping.. Of course itīs not the airlines fault for the turbulence, but the landing was a bit harsh... me and my paranoia thought we were going to crash... Because we headed down sooo fast... Anyyyywayy....

The first place my taxi driver stopped for a hostel it was full, so Iīm in Cortez Azul... From what I can see itīs clean, not über clean, but good enough. I will check my bed later one.. (*blush*)

So I canīt say there is a lot of things to do here in Alajuela, but I already knew that before coming here. However, I have gotten myself some food, even though it isnīt a lot... Iīm really really tired now, and juuust waiting for the time to be 2000, so I can crawl into bed.

*argh* *scrathing* those f***ing mosquito bastards have eaten me EVERYWHERE while I was in Monterrico. Canīt they find somebodys elses blood to suck??

Anyyyway, sooo I have just been walking around here in the neighbourhood. Not far off and not for long. I came across a gaming hall which I had to go into and spend some money in. That was a bout 30 min of fun... or so... Iīm really trying to make my time go by, itīs not so easy when there isnīt a lot of things to do.. So now Iīm back at the Internet cafe trying to find something to do in LA tomorrow. And itīs sooo cheap, itīs only 3NOK an hour here.. CAN you believe that?? Some places in Europe in hotels, you pay like 60NOK for an hour... WHAT ever lissom....

Anyway, I wonīt be writing on the blog for another couple of days.. Until Iīm safely in Honk Kong on Thursday... I will them upload a couple of pics belonging to this blog.. or on Friday maybe more likely to be updated!:)

So have a good week!! I know I will when Iīm standing at the hotel waiting for my boyfriend to arrive;)

TaTa!:) And hasta luego Central America!!:)


Que lo pases bien!!!:)
