Today, we got to play! We took the day off from the project and spent some time being touristas in La Fortuna.
So, I happen to have a mild fear of heights. It is a fear that becomes LESS mild the higher up I go. So, in typical Janvier fashion, I do this! Take that, acrophobia!
Then, there was horseback riding. I rode Herman. Herman was a beautiful horse with a bit of a competitive streak; he did not like to be anywhere near the back of the herd (we went with the students from Texas A&M, so we were a herd)! Herman did a lot of galloping today, and I did quite a bit of bouncing up and down, and a bit of hanging on for dear life! It was so much fun!
Then, hiking the volcano—Arenal! There are no words…
Also got in a bit of that all time tourist favorite, shopping for souvenirs! Yay!
Back to work tomorrow, off to bed now. Hasta manana!
