For the last week, here in Londres, it has been Kelly and I, plus Tanja, Isabel and Chris at the farm.  Tanja and Isabel are our friends from Germany who have been here for 6 months, and as of tomorrow, finally go home to Germany.  We have had so much fun with them and it is sad to see them go.  I have some pictures of a day that Chris, Tanja, Isabel and I spent at the river.  Chris is a 23 year old from Georgia and orginally we met because he couchsurfed here at the farm last month.  He had been touring around Costa Rica since and decided to come back here to Londres for a week to say goodby to the girls before they left.  He is now off on his next adventure ; )  I had a nice time hanging out with these kids...we played cards, philosphized, went to the river, smoked, laughed and they all helped me learn how to take care of my new hair....good times. 

Next, Kelly and I wanted to have some grown up fun!  We started getting invitations to Dominical just a few days before, and we decided it was time to hit the beach (again).  There was a art festival, live music, a bar that was built on the beach, booths of food and games, and a surfing competition.  We found a place for only $30 a night and it was ocean view from our balcony...it was perfect.  Well, we were right in front of the bar they built...and it did keep us up at night, but we rolled with it and enjoyed every minute.  Here is what was crazy, we ended up running into people we never expected to see there...it was like a miny reunion with a bunch of people I had met all over the area.  Plus, we met some couchsurfers and hung out with them as well.  Charles is a couchsurfer from the Yukon and he turned out to be such a joy to be around.  He made us laugh, he protected us when needed, he made us think, he bought us breakfast and was such a gentlemen.  He had to leave on Sunday, but then, I ran into Arnie, a guy I had met in Uvita a few weeks back.  Last I heard he was in Canada, then Nicuagua, but there he was, in Domincal, eating at the place we were staying.  He is a photographer and a very intelligent and interesting person.  Kelly and I saw Jason and Alana, who were at the workshop back in March here in Londres.  I also ran into Rama and Becca, whom were the ones that threw the pizza party in the jungle back at the beginning of the month.  I guess the point I am trying to make is....this is a small country!   In the evenings we were dancing, listening to live music, eating Thai food, hanging with friends...it was all hype social, but after weeks of being on the farm in the jungle, we needed interaction with people.  We also spent time at the beach and at a pool at a resort just down the street during the daytimes.

On Monday I met up with Gary, a man I had met in Uvita a few weeks back...and we did some journey work which is a form of therapy (google it).  I wanted to have it done because the next big step I have is to go back to Arizona,  get rid of most of my things, store some things, and sell my car.  It is a little scary.  I love it here still, but the next step is more permanent.  Then again, I sometimes wish I didn't even have to leave here at all.  Athough, I miss my family and friends....oh, and of course, I am going to Jim and Gingher's wedding.  So off I go in less than two weeks...back to the concrete jungle!  Lots to stuff to do and decisions to be made.  I look forward to connecting with my friends and I hope they can see a more peaceful, calm and blissful Amelia than they did when I left!
