Dear Families and Friends,

Our adventure in Costa Rica will be tracked with our personal bus journal. The teens will each take turns submitting journal entries reflecting on our days.

Con mucho amor,

Today was super fun! We started off the day by going kayaking on the Pacific Coastline. We kayaked to a beautiful beach, where we made friends, swam, and snorkeled. On our way back from kayaking, it started to rain and even lightening. We all worked to get back to shore, although we were all frightened. Me (Nina), who was in front, chanted, “1,” while everyone else chanted “2” to row the kayak. Later that day we went on an interesting crocodile boat tour. It was a little too long, but we met Shakira and Miley Cyrus…which are the names of crocodiles by the way. After dinner, we went shopping at the local supermarket to pack our lunches for Thursday. It was a fun way to begin our next two weeks together!

Today we went exploring in Manuel Antonia National Park where we saw all different kinds of wildlife, including very cute monkeys! The monkeys all seemed very close and were giving each other lice checks. We then walked to a beach and spent the rest of our day being run over by enormous waves. On our way out of the park, we were offered coconuts, water bottles, and souvenirs by local vendors. After dinner, we played name games and then went to an outdoor mall to hang out and eat ice cream. We then went to the supermarket to get all we needed to prepare for Shabbat. It was a very relaxing yet tiring day. But later that night, a few of us tried new Costa Rican candy before we went to bed. We cannot wait for zip-lining tomorrow!
