It´s twenty past five in the UK on the 10 January, and twenty past 11 on the 9 January in Costa Rica! Made it via two flights, a long trek through Newark Airport. Also, met Peter who is on the 3 month programme so we shared a taxi to the hostel.



Very excited to be here. Will check out San Jose once I have had some sleep.



take care all, Sx

Thanks for the messages. Really love to read them. So, I have started trying to put my Spanish into action. I met an American called Don Tucker - yes really his name - and he gave me a crash course in pronunciation. I still couldn´t pronounce the name of the room I was staying in though to ask for the key but got there in the end. I think the hostel owner knew what I meant all along but he´s just getting me to practice too. Met an american who is also on the trip -Jacob but should meet the others this morning. San Jose city is pretty small with a lot of traffic.Peter it seems deploys the Comper mantra of crossing roads "if in doubt just walk out". I on the other hand as you can imagine dither for a bit, see Peter cross a busy road and scurry behind squeeking - quick- I think I am like Piglet when it comes to crossing roads! Radio silence for about two weeks now...off to the rainforest yipeeee. take care, love you and good luck for footie this weekend x
