my mom took this photo of me
hi everyone. my mom is home safe and sound now. 2 days ago we went ziplining over the cloud forest and it was one of the best days of my life! my mom felt the same way. i can't even explain how it felt to be sailing through the air attached to a wire. i felt like superwoman. and it was so ridiculously beautiful! there was also a tarzan rope where i jumped off of a platform and went flying so far into the jungle. i wanted to do it over and over and over. we also did another hike through the rainforest and walked over the hanging bridges and went to a hummingbird garden and a frog pond. i was in heaven looking at all of the creatures.

now i am in a town called Tamarindo, which is a surf town on the pacific ocean side of the country. i love it here! at first, i was anxious because i was having a hard time finding a place to stay and ended up in this awful, chlosterphobic, yucky room. then i stumbled upon a really clean air-conditioned hostel with a huge community kitchen and couches and other imenities.

my mom overcame her fear of heights for this adventure
i ate the $15 dollars i spent on the crappy room and moved to that place, the Playa Tamarindo Hostel. it's only $10 a night. i'm sharing a room with 2 really fun girls. one is from England and she's also traveling alone, so we have been hanging out together. everyone is really cool. lots of cute surfers to look at. : )

yesterday i saw about 10 huge iguanas running around and i also saw what i'm guessing was a cougar or something walking near the hostile. i couldn't believe it!

today i might hike to another waterfall or rent a 4-wheeler. it's REALLY hot here--almost dibilitating, so i might just end up on the beach all day.

miss you all and i'll see you soon!!!
