I've left Berlin for Frankfurt where I stayed for one night in what with high probability was the most dangerous part of my entire trip - a crappy russian Hotel in the middle Frankfurt's hot spot between several Bordellos. Don't ask me how I ended up there, but the place was highly recommended on hotel.de (I wonder by who?)
After a long trip with Delta (of course I got the middle seat) via Atlanta, I finally crashed in my hotel in San Jose, CR, which is surprisingly nice (see pic). While checking in, I meet a german and a swiss girl who are also going to Tamarindo for the same language school. I'm surprised to meet swiss here (but keep reading!), and happy to have met companeros so early during my trip.
