Costa Rica Day 8 Recollection
- [ ] It is finally time to go for a weekend excursion! We first woke up to rice and beans, a tortilla, and scrambled eggs to put in the tortilla which was delicioso! We started to wash dishes but, the bus came at 7:30 am so we didn't finish. Once on the bus we were met our tour guide Ken who told us that we would be going on an aerial tram through the rain forest, go for a hike through the rainforest. When we arrived at the Tram we were assigned to a group and each group was given a guide who told us all about the different aspects of the rain forest. So me, Eric, Mrs.Doorman,Sadie, and Leigh all climbed aboard and started our adventure. It was beautiful blue skies, the green of the forest and the guide told us about the different species of plants and what berries you can eat in the forest and where primary and secondary growth is located and we even got to see a sloth which was by far the coolest thing we saw from the tram. We then took a 45 min bus ride to the next stop which was a lodge where we took a tour through the rain forest where we saw a bird eating snake and a giant Iguana, and turtles, my personal favourite was conquering my fear of swaying bridges because that was very hard to do and I was queazy when the bridge shook but I am luckily still alive. We at lunch and went to the gift shop and bought some postcards! We then took a trip 1 hour away from there to the boat tour, on the tour we had the pleasure of seeing a crocodile sun bathing, bowling monkeys which we communicated with which was cool even though they flung poo into the water so you couldn't get any closer than their line of poo. We saw a King Fisher and numerous other birds as well we then headed back and are now heading home which should be relaxing and we are having Spaghetti tonight which should be utterally unbearably good!
