A Day In San Jose

On the 12th we arrived in San Jose, the capital of Costa Rica.  Yesterday we went on an excursion through the city. After waking up and getting ready, the first stop was McDonald’s for breakfast. Normally we don’t go there. I ordered a cheesy egg sandwich with hash browns and apple juice.  The sandwich tasted weird at first, but after two bites it was delicious. Some other people were a little annoyed with their orders. For example, Lucas ordered pancakes, but didn’t specify the fine print and didn’t get his sausage has shown in the picture. When breakfast was...

Travel Day

I probably should have made this post sooner, since my dad already told you about the house in one of his posts. Anyway, I am going to describe the journey now before its too late. On Monday the 14 we woke up in the Liberian hostel we had rented for the night. After getting ready we headed to ICE to get a local sim card. Doing that took longer then expected, I think it was 30 minutes. Once finally done at ICE we walked to the bus stop to get on a bus on Puntarenas. As we are waiting...
