Position: Jacó, Costa Rica
The night we spent sleeping in tents was more or less comfortable: Not as cold as in Coronado, but definitely not as comfortable as in our host families. So we walked with mixed feelings to the main house of the camping site to have desayuno (breakfast).
Already most of the others were waiting there for breakfast to be served. While waiting we talked about the night – the best description was Theresa’s: “When I woke up at 4am to go on toilet, I thought it was already 6am, because so many people were here. Felix was in the hammock, Marlen came from the other side…”.
But after the breakfast with scrambled eggs, sausages, toast, papaya, pineapple and – who could have guessed it – rice, everybody was motivated again and ready to take down our tents. Very quickly everything was back in the bags. For us it took a little longer because our semi-professionally repaired tent with duck tape needed a bit longer to be taken down.
Afterwards most of us used the time to jump one last time into the pool. What a nice feeling to wash the salt and sand of yesterday away (the outdoor shower with its blue and orange plastic-curtains was not really effective!).
After another group-photo, our trip to the beach started… sun, waves and reading under palm trees… What a pity that our trip just lasted two days!
After two and a half hours we already went back to Coronado by bus. Dirty and tired, but also happy, we got on the bus (I feel very sorry for the bus driver, who has to clean the bus of sand and salt).
During the bus ride I started writing in my diary and realised in that moment that today is day 100. 100 days, in which we visited 8 countries, 19 places, crossed the Atlantic Ocean, were on 16 beaches and surfed now on the Pacific Ocean.
Our 299th meal we ate at a restaurant next to the street. We came out of the bus in a single line and got a sticker that was printed in capital letters with “LUNCH” (nobody knows why?!).
Now we are happy to be back at our host grandma and enjoying our real shower.
After that we will walk to the sister of our host grandma.
At 10:30 there should be a total lunar eclipse, but we‘re surely too tired.
So good night…
