I got back to Liberia just before the new year, in time to take a nap and a shower, and head to Playa del Coco with some friends until dawn. It was a pretty sweet way to bring in the new year. Today I met up with Amy, Gary and Andy Stein, our family friends since before I was born.
And I better get some rest soon because Andy and I are going to Monteverde/Santa Elena tomorrow, bright and early! The Monteverde Cloud Forest is one of the only major Costa Rican destinations that I still haven't been to and I can't wait. Apparently there is some problem with a bridge on the way there (Noemy said she saw it on the news), but we'll make it.
It's going to be hard to get back into the swing of teaching on Tuesday, but I think I'll survive. It wasn't as hard to start speaking Spanish again as I thought it would be (after not speaking it for almost a week), so that's encouraging. The tour guide today complimented my Spanish and took my business card so I can give him a few private English lessons (and hit on me, but what else is new). So that will be good to get some new tutoring clients, as I'm going to have to rake in the cash to pay for all of my crazy and wild adventures. But apparently I shouldn't have too much trouble, since I'm "coronga," as the tour guide told me (cute). Go figure... It's good to be back.
The year 2009 has been very sweet to me. I wish all of my family, friends and fellow travelers a wonderful, peaceful, safe, exciting, happy, healthy new year in 2010!
