When we FINALLY got to The Baldi Hot Springs I was a bit disappointed. I was under the impression it would be like a hike up the Arenal Volcano to these natural hot springs and it would be totally sweet. Not the case. Totally European, resort/spa, men in speedos, overpriced drinks, signs in english. I dunno, it was really nice and beautiful but my expectations had been alot different. But we did get an amazingly delicious dinner where I overate for sure. I feel like I overeat everyday here.
Our hotel was really nice too but we didn't even get to hang out at the pools or anything because it rained all weekend. Overall, Arenal was a bust.
So school has been insane. Today I had to do a 30 minute presentation about Argentina, totally in Spanish!!! I can't believe I actually did it. My teacher said I was good except I basically butchered everything I had to say. When I get flustered I have trouble pronouncing words correctly, it sucks. But it's over with now. I've still got TONS of homework though. I kinda thought school wasn't gonna be a big part of my life down here but it totally is. At least I'm not taking econ classes with Ticos. That would be certain death.
Okay, off to write a paper about costa rica's many ecosystems. At least its interesting, verdad?
