costa rica

i got back last friday from my 3 week stay in costa rica, which was pretty amazing. kristen and i did a surf and spanish program for 2 weeks then the last week we toured around a bit and found our way up to panama. the spanish didnt really stick with me, but surfing was amazing. i found a real passion for it. i used to wonder why every boy was obsessed with it, and now i feel like i understand why... while we were doing the program we met a group of kids also at the school who we spent the majority of our time with, and we met a couple others outside of school who were fun to spend our time with. after we left our town, dominical, we went up to turrialba to go water rafting, then went onto puerto viejo for our last stop in costa rica. puerto is on the caribbean side of costa rica, and was by far my favorite spot we saw, it looked like a set for pirates of the caribbean. after our quick stop there, we ventured to panama to go to bocas del toro. bocas is a town made up of a bunch of little islands. we stayed there for 3 days then had to make our way back to the lovely san jose (never go there) to await our plane home.
