Costa Rica here we come!


January 3, 2007

Well I finished up packing and stayed up talking on the phone, 2:00 AM my alarm clock went off so I took a shower, got dressed and ready to go! Around 3:00 AM I went to pick Cinthia up and my dad drove us to Kean University, we were the first ones there!!!

The shuttle was LATE! yes, late... and honestly I was worried, finally it got there and we were in our way to NY La Guardia Airport, traffic was ok; soon after we were on a plane to Atlanta, GA. Then changed planes, and Costa Rica here we go!!!

Got to San Jose, everything went great. I exchanged some money at the Juan Santamaria Airport and all of a sudden I was rich!!! OMG I got around 48.000 colones for $110, hahaha it just sounded like a lot of money to me. Anyway we met or EF Tour guide Jose Salazar outside, he was waiting with Geovanny (that’s how his name is spell) our awesome bus driver, they took us to the hotel (Gran Hotel Costa Rica)
Cinthia and me changed rooms so we could be together, since we know each other for 5 years now, we get along pretty good. We went up to our room got a shower and went to see around San Jose. We walked into some shops, had ice cream and then came back to the hotel for dinner.
Before dinner we had a meting with Mike about splitting into groups, for the project. During dinner Jose talked about the next day activities, etc.
Some of us went to the "casino", had some drinks... others went out to party!
That was it for the day...
