Me and one of my classes
This week, I had my final classes for two out of my three groups. It felt weird knowing that I won't be seeing them twice a week from now on. I still have one week left of my Friday/Saturday class, but once that's over this Saturday, it will definitely feel like the end is near. The last day was nice. My students were sad (but eager to start the next level, which the INA still doesn't know anything about), but I will see most of them at least a few times before I leave and I hope to keep in touch with most.

So on Friday night we invited a bunch of our students to go out for a few drinks to celebrate their graduation from the B2 level of English. About 30 of them showed up and we had a good time hanging out and a few of them bought me drinks which is always nice. On Saturday I did some paperwork for the INA, had my class and headed out to Playa Hermosa for another celebration of the completion of B2.
Another class of mine :)
Again, a bunch of students came and we hung out on the beach for a little while and went out dancing in Coco. It was definitely a fun party weekend. My students are awesome and I miss them already.

The only bad part was that after getting home late on Saturday night, I didn't get much sleep before I had to be up at 7:30 to go to one of Audrey's student's dairy farm in Quebrada Grande, about an hour away. It was Noemy's class, which includes some of my favorite people. Once there, we road horses across the farm, saw a baby cow being born, hung out at a river, ate lots of yummy food, learned a lot of "tiquismos" (Tico slang, including Culilandia (Podunk), pellizgada (witty), and chepa (gossiper), and had a really good time.

Up and coming events include the Guanacaste Gringos' Trip to Limón, an excursion to Panama, a legal Spanish course in Nicoya, an adventure to las Islas de Ometepe en Nicaragua, and one of my best friends, Adena, coming to visit! It'll be rough, but I guess I'll try to survive the next few months... ;)
