The only tourists in costa rica!

searching for some friends

sunny 28 °C

San Jose was lots of fun, very bright houses and colonial style buildings. We caught the tico train which was a brightly coloured train on wheels that took us on a high speed tour of the city. A friendly man called carlos drove the train, and his son [who wore dungarees had an afro and carried a loud speaker] told us what was going on. Carlos beeped the horn along to costa rican music and new york new york and rang the bell to tell cars to get out of the way.

We then caught the bus to Turriabla, which took us out of the city and up into the mountains. We arrived at the spanish school and were ushered in to a 4 year olds birthday party where we ate hot dogs and guacamole. At this point we realised that we are the only students at the school. We decided to head to the supermarket so we caught the bus into town, we didnt say anything to the driver we just thrust a handful of coins at him so he could pick the fare. We headed back for an early night!

This morning we got up bright and early for our first 4 hour lesson, the sun was shining brightly and we sat under the ranch. It was v intense and we have lots of homework to be getting on with. There were eagles and vultures flying around the garden and we looked out for sloths. We are no going to take the families wild dogs out for a walk to a waterfall.

love you loads
pura vida
