Okay, back to the party stuff.
So with a bag full of poached beer, Michelle and I headed out into the mess with Tyler and Joe. Apparently the main thing of Palmares is this thing called Tope. It's this parade of like 150,000 cowboys and their horses (who shit everywhere which made it inevitable that my converse are officially disgusting now). Anyway, we didn't get to see it but there will still horses wandering around all over the place the whole time we were there.
Okay so our other Tico friends said they were going to be the Marlboro tent all night and that we should try to find them (impossible!). We eventually ran into our group of friends from school and went into some massive tent/bar. It was like three floors with a concert downstairs and more bars and dance floors upstairs. I can't even remember how many and who I danced with in there.
So the hour was getting close to midnight and we should have been heading back to our bus. Being drunk and friendly we took Daniel up on his offer to take a bus back to Heredia with him. Crazy right? Who does shiz like that?!!! One of the San Jose kids told us we gotta go with them and we're like 'nah' and kept dancing. Jejeje. Long ride home short, we made it back to Heredia just fine. Daniel walked us home and then we passed the eff out. Apparently, Karla our group director, called our mom this morning to see where we were and that she was worried because we didn't get on the bus. I'll be expecting a lecture of sorts Monday morning. Duli.
Anyway, today was relaxing. Spent the day tanning in our backyard and doing homework. Tomorrow morning we're leaving Heredia at 6:30 to go to Arenal Volcano. Gonna spend the weekend hanging out in some awesome hot springs. Can you tell I'm stoked on life?!!!
