Editor's note: My friend who works for the NWS did confirm there indeed, was an earthquake at 10:49 last night around San Jose. It was a 4.6 According to wikipedia, that is considered "light" but enough to "shake" things in a home. So....I wasn't dreaming!
Yesterday was my last day of volunteering at the school
My cold has worsened a bit, and now my nose is running like a faucet. I'm hoping it will improve soon.
I had dinner last night with my friend's niece, Alejandra, and her boyfriend Walter. They picked me up at the house and we had dinner at an Italian restaurant in San Pedro. It was a nice change! They are super nice people, and I'm glad I got to meet them.
I'm sad that I'm leaving the Cubillo family today, but excited because Lissy arrives and we are going to Manuel Antonio!! I guess you could say this is where the real "vacation" starts
The Cubillo's have been wonderful hosts, and I can't say enough great things about them. Marita, especially, cooked great meals and really felt like a "mom" to me. I will miss them dearly.
After I laid down last night to go to sleep, I thought I felt a small tremor. Granted, I'm pretty drugged up from the cold medicine, but I swear my bed was shaking. What a crazy feeling! It only lasted a few seconds. I was ready to hit the doorway when it ended.
Now I must pack, shower and get ready to head to M.A. Our driver, Mr. Freddy, is supposed to pick me up around noon. Then we will head to the airport to get Lissy, who arrives at 1. We should be in M.A. by 5 pm at the latest. I heard the drive there is beautiful, so I can't wait to take more pictures!
Adios for now!
