oye como va!








Ok, so I am back, sorry about the service interruption! It's called a VACATION, you should all try it! Went to Costa Rica with some of the best friends a gal can have, Mary, Jaime and Schmartin- all RIT alum, photo majors. I will add some pics tomorrow. It was such an amazing trip, I highly recommend Costa Rica to anyone! Had some thrilling adventures, canopy tours via zip line- almost went into hysterics but managed to keep it all in. I tell you, I would SO not be a good member of the Road Rules/Real World teams! Katie, I hear you! Inferno this, gauntlet that- gimme a swim up bar and I am good! Martin and I went camping on the most beautiful beach- the waves were pretty intense, and the undertow almost got me. There were signs warning us of 'cocodrilles' which now, in the united states DOES look like the word for crocodile! But for some reason I swore it meant 'crab'- and the park ranger let me think that, or I misinterpreted it, whichever! So we camped in a place that was inhabited by 'cocodrilles' at night and especially by the lagoon, which was not too far away. Not the smartest thing I have ever done. But I thought it was going to be teeming with crabs at nightfall, which to me was creepy enough b/c they were HUGE, and face it, anything en masse is creepy. Imagine a swarm of earthworms. See? YUCK. So on our next tour Martin asks the guide what 'cocdrilles' means, he says 'crocodiles' and I freaked out! Late and in a van, not anywhere near the camp site but the terror was still real! Can't wait to share the pictures!
