The real test will be when I ask a random girl to dance and as you can imagine this can be quite intimidating especially when others have been dancing for years. Currently I have been practicing with other gringos who know a lot less than me and also make me look good. So I´m off to Miami tomorrow and maybe I´ll hit a salsa club.
So for the last week I have been staying at a place called Hostel Pangea near the center of San Jose. The city is a lot smaller than I expected and it only takes 10 mins to talk into Avenue Central and the main attractions. The hostel is OK, but doesn't have a great atmosphere, so I would recommend it anyone.
On Monday I travelled to a nearby town Alujulia, I think thats how to spell it, to meet up with Natalie who I had met in La Fortuna. I did feel a little out of place as a new group of i-to-i volunteers were meeting up, but i fitted in and we all when to a local club. Yesterday I meet up with the group and at a villa in La Fortuna (again) which was lots of fun and of course included a couple of beverages! The volcano was more visible last night and little cloud was surrounding its peak, therefore you could see lava flowing down its cone, while I swigged on a beer in the villas pool.
While not dancing, I spent Thursday with East Londoner(sorry not Essex) Hannah one of the volunteers from i to i, we walked around the city checking out the theatre, which is really impressive. We also hit the local student bars in San Pedro, where I was learning to dance and a dance hall which looked like a Latino version of Pheonix nights.
On Wedsnesday I went to a jazz club with some guys from the hostel, again into San Pedro to meet up with kjersti and her Norweigen friends. I met kjersti in San Cristobel and we travelled in the large group down to Antigua in Guatemala. She is currently at uni studying Spanish, so it was great to see a friendly face, not to sure about the rock band though!
That leads me back to today, after 5 hours back from La Fortuna I´m just getting my stuff ready for the flight tomorrow to Miami and onto Ecaudor next week.
