Hello rainforest!

After a bumpy but scenic ride on the Pan American highway and up a mountain, we have arrived at the Monteverde Villa Lodge. There is a much higher concentration of wildlife and fauna here compared to San Jose, as well as more bugs! My stomach has not been taking the food well so recently, so I’ve decided to stick bread and fruit mostly. There are a lot of tourists here, many other college-age students as well, so I’m hearing a lot of English. The room we are staying in is beautiful with wood paneling on all the walls and ceiling. I’m thinking of Sunday to celebrate my birthday with the group and try one of the famous ziplines. I might chicken out so we’ll see how that goes. Have to wake up early tomorrow for our rainforest tour 🙂
