Position: Coronado, Costa Rica
Ahoy! Warning: If you’re reading this hungrily: Better get yourself something to eat first, as this is going to be quite a food-oriented report 😉
The eating started “early” (really strange, how often my perception of that word changed during the last three months, always depending on watch and weekly program!) with French toasts – fried toasts, formerly being soaked in a milk-egg-sugar-vanila mixture. Absolutely delicious, especially with costarican honey and bananas!
After some hours of Spanish course, lunch consisting of sandwiches and intense planning of the upcoming trade game (looking forward, if it all turns out as wanted!) with Peer and the rest of the economics pathway crew, we had a “Costa Rica fruit class”.
This consisted of tasting, naming and describing exotic fruits – in Spanish of course! El tamarindo es una fruta de color marrón, textura suave y sabor muy dulce. I got to know quite a lot of new fruits! Afterwards we had a whole fruit-buffet with all my favourites: Watermelon and pineapple and banana and above all: Mango!!!
As if this was not enough, the relaxed day ended with a movie, supported with popcorn and pizza. We watched the new adaptation of all-time classic Jungle Book, called “Mowgli”. And even though I didn’t like the movie that much, as I missed the happy Disney singing and found the animations rather unaesthetic, I think all participants go to bed very grateful today 🙂
Anyway just to make you envy us a bit more: I’ll end my day with packing for a weekend of surf’n’beach – Jacó, we’re coming!!
