Waiting for the plain to take off

So, I left NJ airport at 8am and I was on my way to the trip of my life!

The flight was 30 min late due to airport traffic, we were 20th in line to take off, and once we did the flight was fast and pleasant.

After 4 hours and 37 minutes we landed in Costa Rica!!!

A guy came up to me asking me to take a survey about Costa Rica... that was really stupid coz I just got there... anyway, the guy was really nice and I was waiting for my bags anyway, so why not.

At the exit from the airport I found the shuttle driver from my hostel (Pangea), there were a lot of shuttles! In the car I met a couple of really nice Canadian people, and we went together to the hostel. The way there was quick and the weather looked great.

The Hostel was simple but had everything I needed, a single room with shared bathrooms and a common area with free internet access, and a restaurant bar with good prices.

After a quick shower, I went to the internet. E-mailed everybody that I'm alive :) and met an Israeli guy that was staying there too, we went to explore the city, but our trip was cut short due to sudden rain and we came back to the hostel.

We had lunch/dinner with the Canadian couple and stayed at the bar for the rest of the night, meeting different interesting people from different countries and different experiences.
