Well I am still doing great. School is just getting to be absolutely unbearable. thank god we have a week off next week. Semana Santa. Wahoo. I plan to take a ferry across the peninsula and travel up to Tamirindo to take some surfing lessons. This is probably the longest week of my entire life. Is it really only Wednesday evening.

I met my Uncle Wiley in San Jose on Sat. and we toured the city and did some shopping and then met Pat and Jim at Avis. We rented a car and drove down to Puntarenas and checked into the Hotel Fiesta. Which by the way is like a fortress they barely let you in or out. It is crazy. but very very nice. The following day we headed out early to the acclaimed Arenal Volcano. It was amazing, the drive there was very serene and quaint. We toured the rain forest via aerial suspension bridges and it was very beautiful. The hot springs were not what we expected but we opted for a nice dinner instead directly in front of the Volcano. Where we were able to see the red glow just waiting to erupt. Very cool.

I started back at school on Monday starting with testing week, AGHGHGHGH! Pat, Jim and Wiley went sightseeing across the bay and enjoyed the  sights of CR. I wish I was traveling everyday withe them but I am stuck at the school all this week.

Friday is sports day and we plan on beating the other class in a good old game of soccer. Well I am so happy to be back writing and am able to share pictures, give y'all something to look at. Everyday is a new adventure.

Pura Vida

Semana Santa
The pictures look great! How close is the volcano to your place? It's good to hear that you're still alive and I hope that you are enjoying Semana Santa. Miss you.
