Coming to Costa Rica

I accepted that I was gonna be studying abroad in Costa Rica not when I paid the $500 deposit for the trip nor when I purchased my air ticket but when I landed in San Jose International Airport. The magnificent green mountains greeted me from my airplane window seat as I arrived. I went outside and met the rest of the group that I would be spending the next 4 months of my life here in Costa Rica with. I guess I was slightly disappointed that this was the first all girl group the program ever had… I guess I should be use to it by now… The program description for this study abroad was very vague and none of us really knew what to expect, but we all went with flow. We were gonna stay at the Hotel El Sesteo for the weekend. The view from the veranda right in front of our room was soo gorgeous.
That night we went to this fancy traditional Costa Rica Restaurant called “Las Nuestras” .There were traditional dancers,lively music and very creative interior decorations. The restaurant was mainly oriented for tourists, most of the people there were foreigners… all the while there was great food, great music and great performances…It was a fiesta!!!!

We order way too much for just the two of us, but it was good to taste a variety of the  cuisines de los carnes,tortialls and platantes(finally!). I can’t get over all the fresh fruits here, and all the fruit juices one can imagine, watermellon, pineapple, etc. I couldn't pick and so i just went for the fruit mix. And then what a great way to end the night, with some traditionally prepared Costa Rican Coffee, with a camarero not so bad looking ;)
